India has also its own way of preparation- Filter coffee. Though it is popular in South India especially Tamil Nadu, its fame has traveled quite a distance. Coffee is an instant way to refresh.
The filter coffee is made using a special utensil, which has two cylinder compartments. The upper cylinder has a lid and a pierced disc with a handle, the bottom of the upper cylinder is perforated. Lower cylinder is a Tumbler like one, to which upper cylinder is mounted.

After mounting the upper cylinder over the Tumbler like the lower part, the coffee powder has to be added and the perforated disc with handle should be placed. Boiled water is poured over it and should be kept close for hours, so thick decoction will get collected inside the tumbler. For that, it will take a couple of hours. The filter coffee has a rich flavor much superior to Espresso and it is very strong too.
