After the morning alarm, it is the Suda Suda Kaapi that is our next wake up call, especially in our Brahmin community. There are lots of brands out there, yet a few traditional ones are not just giving stiff competition to the baristas, but also thriving.
As a coffee lover, I'm looking at researching a few brands, especially the ones we use at home, and thought it best to start from here.

If there was one brand of coffee that you swear by (especially South Indian, Tamilnadu or Chennai) which one would it be?

This is an old thread on Coffee

This is a comment by one participant. About 60 posting in this thread!

OMG!! This has been winding its way through uncertain territories. Starting with a poor professors cups, moving to cups of a different kind-without handle, to riddle filled ones, to anatomical ones to andal to sundal from வியாசர்பாடி to வாணியம்பாடி(just for the sake of rhymes) and finally ending up in a பேரிளம்பெண்ணின் unfulfilled பெருங்கனவு. LOL. Free entertainment. Enjoyed

My take is--go the shop get peaberry 300 gram and plantation A 200 gram. mix and get it ground to a certain consistancy and use it to brew your concoction. At times if you want a little more of bitterness add a spoon full of Narasus instant coffee. That is my recommendation. Try it and enjoy.
Thumb rule is peaberry for flavour/aroma and plantation for bitterness. Add or reduce to your taste. That is the trick.

Wow...I dont drink coffee at all.

The only time I smell coffee beans is when I go to get my supply of perfumes from Oud Perfume House where taking a whiff of each perfume we are asked to smell fresh coffee beans to delete the smell of the previous perfume and we can go on testing the perfumes and the perfumed oils.

I generally prefer Iced Lemon Tea.

Narasu coffee !! I carry few packets whenever I travel.

Renuka Ji, You are missing out on life !! Nothing I repeat nothing ever comes close to a morning kaapi !! And afternoon kaapi is the most relaxing. And night kaap before sleep is divine !!

I mean you know that coffee is the nectar of the gods from my earlier posts :)- !!

Naah...no way.
Coffee has high content of caffeine and most coffee drinkers need it to jump start their day.

I prefer plain warm water in the morning with Tulsi leaf or sometimes mint leaf.
Only at night I drink warm milk and mid afternoon if I go out anywhere only then I drink iced lemon tea(not often).

I stay away from caffeine...i prefer to be alert right away in the morning.

If you intend to buy 1kg of Leo Coffee please do the following
Roasted peebery 1/2 kg
Roasted plantation A (special) 1/2 kg
Mix and grind.
No chicory please
Make filter coffee and enjoy the suberb taste

After trying many brands I have stuck to Gothas with 15% to give consistency and slight bitterness. It is available in Bangalore and many US stores.

Actually we use a combination of Bru filter coffee powder and Cothas coffee powder. This gives both strength and flavor.
