For those who grew up enjoying aromatic South Indian style Filter Coffee, making it is a no-brainer. However, for the rest of the world, it is a great alternative to brewing coffee in a standard coffee maker. The biggest difference in South Indian style filter coffee is the coffee. Coffee beans are blended with chicory, the root of a fragrant plant.
