I HATE IT WHEN SOMEONE MIXES DECAFE AND REGULAR.
Anyone else care to share their stories.

i have told this story before in another thread, so i will not repeat the whole thing... but, a little background is important. i was in the Navy for a while and drank a lot of coffee...
just imagine JET FUEL getting backwashed into the ship's freshwater supply... talk about a strong cup of coffee!

Would any Indians in America know what kind of coffee tastes like Chikmagalur coffee?
I found Sumatra, and sometimes Cappuccino reminds me of Indian coffee... but have never found the authentic taste of Chikmagalur coffee here.

From Nanjundaiah's link...
>Chickmagalur is the home land of Indian Coffee. Coffee said to >have been introduced in 1670 A.D. by a Mohammedan Saint at >Chandradrona Parvatha by sowing 7 seeds. This hillock is now >called as 'BABA BUDAN GIRI'.

Ah!..the missing link...There's a coffee house here, in Cincinnati, named "Baba Budan's"...I was wondering where did the Indian Name come from...

BTW, NN...I really miss your anagrams

What coffee is good in Europe ?
German/Austrian coffee is bad. Dutch & French seem ok.

I have fond memories of my coffee days in India...It's now been quite a while since I've had a cup that I really enjoyed...Although the coffee I tasted at the "Udupi Cafe" in Indianapolis was an ersatz version...it was much better than what I have everyday.

Who is Nanjundaiah, by the way
The best coffee I've had in the US until now is at Mysore Woodlands on Devon Ave, in Chicago. My local Udupi Bhavan's coffee is pretty boring, I suspect they are using Bru instant coffee powder.

Hehe. I understand. You can call me NN
Now, desperately trying to swing this thread back to discussing coffee, has anyone tried using a percolator, to make coffee?

I haven't...I am gonna ask someone from India to send it to me. Although a percolator takes more time, it surely will make some great coffee decoction.
There were times when we used to roast coffee seeds at home and grind it using a small machine. The aroma still lives with me

A percolator is all I use, and I grind my own beans. Even have a backup pot for when my trust Farberware gives up the ghost.

NN might have meant the percolator that is widely used in the southern part of India. It is a 3-piece cylindrical utensil ( A "top container" with a sieve-like bottom which fits into a "bottom container". A stirrer is also included).
Normally, the dimensions of such utensils are 8" height and 4" diameter.
Well, i sensed a touch of nostalgia in NN's "percolator"...that's why I am making this wild guess...
Is this what you meant? NN

Yes, that's what I had in mind - but perhaps the percolators available here (like the ones from Farberware) have a similar design. I should check them out.
However, most coffee websites (like this one) don't recommend using a percolator. So what do you like about it, Michael?

ShyamSundar /Nanhesaru Ningyake,
The 'real' percolator has 4 parts.The bottom container is filled with water first.The other 2 parts, a funnel and a strainer which fits into the funnel are used.Coffee powder is spooned into the funnel(whcih already has the strainer sitting in it) and the funnel now fits into the base so that its tip is immersed in water and the water level touches the strainer.The remaining (4th) part is made ot fit on the base.It is of almost equal length as the base, it has a strainer fitted at its bottom and a long pipe the rises from its base to its top.It has a rovable cover too.
So the essential logic is that as the water boils, the steam rises thru the coffee powder , thru that pipe in the top part and percolates around that pipe (in the top part).So you just need to pour the decoction out.
Well, thats the eseential difference between a filter and a percolator.Any coffee drinker worth her/his chicory can differentiate between filter coffee and percolator coffee and that awful instant coffee.
All said and done,I love to start my mornings with a cup of tea!
Cheers!

md.

Hey Masala Dosa, please re-register with a proper name You must specify what kind of Masala Dosa you are. The options are:
1. Mysore Masala Dosa
2. Onion Masala Dosa
3. Butter Masala Dosa
4. Special Rava Masala Dosa
5. Paper Masala Dosa
Also, you must indicate whether you are a male Masala Dosa or a female Masala Dosa
Returning to the topic, my first cup of coffee every morning is instant coffee - Taster's Choice Gourmet Roast - the best instant I've found.

NN,
I'm not any of the options you have offered.I'm just a plain ol' Masala dosa .
And how Sir, does it matter, if this poor dosa is male/female?
Coming to your topic, you are surely and slowly killing yourself(and your tastebuds, not particularly in that order) with that instant coffee , every morning.
Tea has anti-oxidants that prevent cancer,FYI
Like I tell everyone , there is nothing that Tea-L-C can't cure !!! LOL!!
