One of the many things Bella and I have in common is a love for coffee. The other day, she wrote a post (yes, yet another one!) about this love of hers and I offered to send her a picture of my South Indian coffee filter. Apparently I wasn’t the only one who loves Bella, coffee and is mad (in no order of priority)…..because as it turns out, Bella has sparked off a revolution.
So here is a not very good photograph of my South Indian coffee filter.
If you want to know more about how the filter works, go here for a video.
José and I love the aroma and taste of filter coffee. It does require some work and planning – the decoction needs to be made at least an hour before it is drunk. And it doesn’t always filter well. So you might get less coffee than you need! However, no instant coffee can compare with it, we think.
Making filter coffee is a good metaphor for life – you plan it, live it the best way you can, and then leave the rest up to Providence – sometimes you get stuck, but most times it turns out fabulous.
Please take a look at the lovely links in this revolution.
