Morning Kaapi - what's your pick?

Which brand of coffee do you mostly relate to

For me nothing like buying Robusta and Arabica coffee seeds from coffee board with 2:1 mixing. Later grinding both to 80:20 (chicory). And have a hot filter coffee. Now the problem is that there are no coffee bean grinding shops around. So we have to do with Narasu's kaapi.

I'm much more interested in buying a grinding machine to enjoy that fresh aroma. But, I found buying beans is costlier than buying ground coffee. Is it so?
Generally, it is.
But you have to buy raw bean and roast it, and then grind it to get the fresh taste, everything else is second only,

hi

yes... i have some practical experiences...i have a COFFEE DAY shop close to my home in thiruvanmiyur...

they sell beans as well as ground coffee...we use to coffee bean and roasting/grinding etc...but now

we can order bean and they roast /grind in front of us..if we like chicory we can add...otherwise

we get pure coffee..i like aroma of coffee grinding shop in chennai..
 
Coffee Day shops usually have both beans and grinding machine. One can buy beans and grind in their presence. But the problem is that coffee taste and aroma depends upon beans quality, temperature of roast and coarseness of grind. These shops have no control on beans quality and usually go for cheapest for better margins. And the machine does quick roast and grind - all in one. Again, because of quick roasting instead of slower roasting, these coffee though good while sipping, leaves a distinct bitter after taste. A good coffee will have aroma and pleasant after taste to last atleast for half an hour. Some decades back, in our home we used to buy coffee beans from India Coffee house in certain proportions. And dry roast follwed with manual coffee grinder, which powder to be used within one week.

hi
i remember INDIA COFFEE HOUSE in my teen ages in 80s.....they have nice coffee espeically in THIRUMALA..

whenever i visit thirupathi/thirumala...i take kaapi from there..i think ..it belongs to COFFEE BOARD...

A GOVT OF INDIA UNDERTAKING....after many private parties in this field....we had a hotel in chennai

for more than 40 years...i used to have nice degree coffee in the morning..
 
20 years back it was no doubt "India Coffee". Now, if someone wants to really really enjoy that first thrilling sip of FILTER COFFEE, try "Bayar's". There are two main varieties. 1] Red and Yellow packet which is 70 / 30 combination, and, the other 2] Red and Green packet, which is 80 / 20 combination.
Go for the 2nd one i.e., 80/20. Mix with it 100 or 50 grams of 'Kotha's Coffee', depending on whether you have bought a 1/2 kg packet or 1/4 kg packet, for the aroma factor. Then ofcourse, it is the filtering. Try with 5 to 6 teaspoons of the powder for filtration. Pack the powder tight. Slightly heat the base of the filter. Sprinkle a wee bit (pinch) of sugar on top of the coffee powder. Then pour the boiling water to the brim. That's it. (y)

I'll be happy to get a feedback at beesridhar@gmail.com

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?
As a resident of Trichy I would also prefer Padma Coffee as someone else already said.

Kanchi Mahaperiyavaa, our beloved Paramacharya, has told that drinking coffee is tamasic and it should be avoided at all costs. His Holiness strictly prohibited coffee with a sternness equal to his tone while banning silk clothes (ahmisa). In fact, His Holiness clearly told many times that brahmins should never consume tamasic drinks such as coffee and tea. Hope we all try and live by His teachings, starting with a simple sadana such as avoiding coffee. Sad that so many of us brahmins here extol a beverage banned by our Paramacharya.

Hi,
Having tried various brands of coffee, in search of good taste, aroma, etc, we finally settled with Kotha’s Coffee with a combination of Green Label approximately 80.20 ratio. Every day, starts with a hot coffee, a nice stimulant that trigger the energy to meet the challenges of the day. Thanks for those who recognized the stimulating effects of Coffee beans. Lot of peoples livelihood depends on this product. We love to enjoy this hot drink with aroma every morning.
