Try this filter coffee for a change and be blessedSpecific brands are now making waves in many markets. One of these is called "Kumbakonam Filter Coffee". One can see this name everywhere in Tamil Nadu and am now told that it is famous along the highway in the surrounding States as well.
So, what is this filter coffee all about? Well, Kumbakonam is a small town, some 90 kilometers from the famous city called Tiruchirapalli. For starters, Kumbakonam is a town of temples. There are reportedly over sixty temples and in each of these temples, there is a big crowd at all times. Someone, many years ago, invented the technique of branding the filter coffee specially prepared for the tourist and the town population. The filter coffee is not ordinary filter coffee. There is a particular method of preparing it. No one really knows if it is patented. However, thousands of shops serve you more or less the same kind of filter coffee.
I had a cup of this filter coffee recently in an outlet that bore the name of "Kumbakonam Filter Coffee". I have had it several times in the past; nothing much has changed and the core remains the same. Ask the guys how they do it and they will simply say that it is a trade secret. It is always served only in brass tumbles.
Taste this filter coffee during your next visit to Tamil Nadu and be blessed!! You are bound to like it.
