How to make degree coffee at home with quick video, step by step pictures, tips. Learn how to make perfect south Indian filter coffee.
Making a filter coffee may sound easy to many but, not any one can make a good coffee. And if any one of your family member is a coffee lover, then you have to make a perfect coffee every morning to make their day brisk…
Before marriage my mom makes coffee only for my grand parents and herself. My father having seen my grandparents addicted to coffee, never allowed us to drink coffee anytime.
So both me and my brother are not used to drink coffee/tea. I have also seen many coffee drinkers, who miss to take coffee at their usual time, develop headache.
But after marriage, my in-laws family all are hardcore filter coffee lovers and my MIL is very famous among our relatives/ friends for her degree coffee. She makes best coffee everyone says.
I am not a big fan of coffee and I never know how a coffee should be, but even I have smelt her coffee while she makes, its smells so sweet and divinely.
So I always wanted to learn from her and make coffee just like her for Vj. And having watched her for these many days, now too am very comfortable and confident to make filter coffee.
When my in-laws visited 2 months back, as a matter of hope, even my FIL certified me that my coffee is tasting great! My father in law never says that to anyone so I was so happy hearing that 🙂
But still I am not claiming I am an expert, but I can say I make a very good coffee 🙂 Because I enjoy the process and constantly look for improving, perfecting it.
And when a blog reader requested me to post, I was very happy to do this post. I have always asked for tips from both my MIL and FIL for making the best coffee.
I make filter coffee everyday morning for Vj. And I learnt there are couple of main factors for making a good coffee. Coffee powder and fresh milk are main factors.
- The coffee ground
I have seen both my in laws and mom buying coffee bean and roasting and grinding freshly for each and every day coffee. But now a days, they buy coffee powder from Coffee day. Its equally good.
When I visit Chennai yearly once, I buy some half KG of coffee powder my in laws pass to me and store it in the fridge/ freezer. I take only required amount of it and use for 15 days to a month and then refill it.
My in-law's choice:
- Coffee day (No chicory)
- Mysore coffee company
In Singapore, my choice :
- Narasus PB (pure coffee)
- Namma Athu coffee (Pure)
- Cothas Speciality blend - suggested by my fellow blogger friend Jeyashri.
KUMABKONAM DEGREE COFFEE BRANDS
People's choice is Mohan coffee, yet my in-laws choice is (Not sponsored)
Mysore coffee company
No: 156/1, 2, John Selvaraj Nagar Near New Bus Stand & Opp to NBS Towers, Kumbakonam, Tamil Nadu 612001, India
Ratio they customize: 300 Peaberry, 200 A, 50 Robusta.
Check out my social media post about it here.
Now latest, I buy Narasus PB pure and Namma athu coffee from Sri Murugan and mix them both to make coffee. Because, Narasus gives bitter and thinner decoction but gives best flavor that makes nama athu coffee a perfect balance.
When we talk about degree coffee, first and foremost thing that is very very important is the decoction making, which I have explained in the post.
Since the post is about this, let me first tell you what it means. A degree coffee is, making coffee with the thick and fresh milk, not diluted with water (called first degree milk) and 1st degree decoction. That is, while brewing the decoction, we have to use only the first batch of brewed 'thick' decoction.
Only right amount of water goes and not too much water to make it thick and concentrated, not thin with lots of water which makes it less strong.
In the olden days, milk that was certified as pure with a lactometer was called “degree milk”, and coffee that was prepared with this milk became popular as “degree coffee”. The coffee that was decocted for the first time before mixing with the milk, was known as “first degree coffee” because it was very strong and flavourful unlike “second and third degree coffee” that undergo decoction more than once.Article with my recipe in Deccan Herald
As you know many of the house holds, including mine or at restaurants and coffee shops, they do second brewing and third too at some cases. So a big no to second brewed coffee mixed in this. 'Only' the first brew is used for making degree coffee.
As in my households, my mom & MIL both also brew second time from the same coffee powder, it will be obviously less in strength and flavor.
So if you want to make first degree coffee, use only the first brewed decoction and it should be thick and strong. Hope you can see the strength of first and second degree decoction in the below picture.
The first batch will be thick and if you add hot water and again brew in the same coffee powder, it gets diluted. In my family, elders like only degree coffee.
And others don’t mind or few even like only the coffee made by mixing both first and second degree(batch) decoction. They say it has a mild bitterness that they like in it. So its your preference.
- They say is the sugar quantity has to be correct and according to the individual preference. Not too sweet, not too bitter as well. So let me move on to the post.
Make it fresh is best for perfect flavor and taste. But If you have any leftover decoction or you want to make it in bulk and keep, just add ¼ teaspoon sugar in it and keep covered in the fridge. This is what my MIL told me. It locks the flavor as well as someone have pointed out in comments section.
One thing I notice people doing is take out the tamper stand (Perforated stand) and pour water directly over coffee ground.
But my suggestion is leave the tamper stand over the coffee powder as such.
There is a reason for the part of filter, so let it be 😉 Let me tell you why. If you add water directly, the coffee grounds gets disturbed and it gets drained fast.
The water should slowly get brewed as coffee for best flavor and taste. So gently press the coffee powder with tamper and pour water over that.
This let water not affecting the pressed coffee powder and regulates the water. If it drains fast, the strength will not be strong (wont be thick) and lacks flavor.
This is not a pour over coffee process for you to first pour little for it to bloom and all those stuffs they follow it in that method. This is the way how it is made in our home and I can vouch, it turns out great.
At times, the pores in the filter gets clogged with the coffee powder, so clean with a needle point if needed. Just immerse the filter in boiling water weekly once or so to keep it clean. OR show it to direct flame to get rid of the stuck powder.
Showing in direct flame also helps descaling. Boiling in vinegar mixed in water also helps descaling the filter.
- By chance your first brewed decoction gets dripped fast and is too thin, immediately pour the collected thin decoction again in the filter and brew for the thick one. The flavor will be compromised this way. But just in case. 😉
- If by any chance your coffee decoction never collects down ,in case you pressed too hard the coffee powder, just gently tap the filter carefully on the rim. Or as such tap the filter gently few times.

Equipments (Amazon Affiliate links)
- south Indian coffee filter
- 2 tablespoon Coffee powder heaped
- ¼ cup water boiling hot
Brewing coffee decoction
- Add 2 table spoons of coffee powder in the perforated upper part.
- Use the stand (perforated plate with stand) and gently press to level the coffee powder. *Refer notes
- Heat required water to fill the filter and let it start to boil. Add it to the filter and fill up to the rim and close immediately with the lid.
- Wait for 15 minutes - ½ hour. Collect the 1st degree decoction and keep covered. If you want you can again add hot water and brew second time.
How to make coffee
- Boil milk well and then froth the milk with sugar once by using tumbler and davarah.
- Add required amount decoction say 2 teaspoon – 1 tablespoon and froth well. Let it be hot. So don’t do for long time.
- We always use “Dabara tumbler” to serve authentically 🙂 Enjoy it piping hot!
- Choose correct filter size , you have to at least fill quarter and add water accordingly. If you add too much water then the strength may not be thick.
- If the coffee powder is coarse, press tightly to get thick decoction. If the coffee powder is fine ground, be gentle while pressing. Otherwise it will take too long to collect the decoction
- Never ever re-heat the coffee. It wont taste good. Worst case, do it in double boiler method. Keep inside a boiling water to re heat.
- Boil milk in stove top as it keeps hot for long time than the microwave boiled milk.
- Milk is a very important factor, so use fresh milk rather than the UHT. My MIL uses aavin light blue pack, its perfect for her coffee.
How to make
For making perfect decoction, choose the correct filter size. I make only for my hubby. So I have a small one. Add 2 tablespoons (levelled) of coffee powder in the perforated upper part.
Press gently with the perforated stand (tamper). I use my fingers to do this to keep the pressure we apply in my control. otherwise I sometimes press too hard, then it takes too long for brewing.
So be gentle while you press. If you press too loose, then the water gets through so fast and the decoction wont be strong(thick). It will be very diluted. So do it gently but firm.
Heat required water to fill the filter and let it start to boil. Add it to the filter and fill up to the rim and close immediately with the lid.
Wait for 15 minutes. Collect the 1st degree decoction and keep covered. If you want you can again add hot water and brew second time.
Boil milk well, and then froth the milk with sugar once.
Add required amount decoction say 2 teaspoon – 1 tablespoon and froth well. Let it be hot. So don’t do for long time.
We always use “Dabara tumbler” to serve authentically 🙂 Enjoy it piping hot!
besh, besh! romba nalla irukku! few of your tips are new to me, will use it raks. btw pictures are fresh like coffee!
Lovely clicks. well explained. u know something , i too have this post in draft with step by step pics. neenga munthikitteenga 😉
feel like having a cup of coffee now. As u said everyone cannot make best coffee. Even the one who introduced this fantastic cothas coffee powder makes it very pathetic.
Nice write up with useful tips
My mom usually says sugar is added to make the decotion thick
I m one of those who got addicted 2 coffee/tea...just love the freshly made good filter coffee though I have tea on daily basis..u explained it beautifully raks....good job

I can smell the coffee aroma even here, even i have the traditional coffee filter but have not used it so regularly, your snaps make me try this once.
Very well explained!!superb!
awesome click .....great post..
Aromatic fresh coffee - kaapi to be precise 🙂
Well explained post with beautiful pictures..ipove coffee kudika poren 🙂 tempts me to the core
I so identify with your post here.At my place,we drink tea and coffee intermittently and the coffee is always Nescafe.But to be honest,we aren't so particular about the brand,my favorite is Bru.But at in-laws place the story is totally different.My fil and bil has to have fresh degree coffee(as you call it)daily,while breakfast and in the evening.My mil patiently does all this brewing part and getting everyone fresh degree coffee effortlessly on a daily basis.But have to give credit to my fil too,he makes a special concoction by mixing two powders,coffee day powder and brooke bond powder for that perfect colour,taste and thickness.Luckily I've learnt the tidbits from her and make a good cuppa when they visit:)
Sorry for the long comment.Absolutely loved your post and couldn't resist sharing my experience as well!
These stunning pictures are making me crave filter coffee... and of course my love for filter coffee!
Thanks all for your comments 🙂
No problem at all. Infact, long interactive comments make it more interesting 🙂 I love to hear. And I will try that mixing part when I come to chennai definitely! And you are right, my MIL also effortlessly does this every day, but for me morning its a project 🙂 But I love doing it :))
Great you are also using Cothas coffee...we too love it ! my coffee is bit different by 2 points(hotel version) 1)we add a pinch of salt/ sugar on top of coffee powder before pouring hot water. 2) we divide the required water into 2 equal quantities. After pouring the first half of boiled water , wait it to drip down then again heat second half and repeat, by this they say we can get maximum out of coffee powder, try it once i am sure u love it !
wow..awesome filter coffee..i love the smell of it..I am gonna post my recipe soon in my blog..
Looks so tempting and I want the filter kapi now as I am a coffee lover anytime or all day. I love ur clicks.

I was not much inclined to coffee/tea but now having come to US, the weather here has made me to drink coffee. I try to simulate the filter coffee in coffee maker with US brand coffee powder. With lots of trials, now I can make a good one! Your blog is simple to understand but has a great appeal. Continue this good service to vegetarianism.
Thank you All 🙂 Thanks a lot Usha Rajo for your comment and appreciation! 🙂
Hi Raks, you rock in every recipe that you post. Perfect recipes. This filter coffee reminds me of my mom's coffee. I have not even tried for a filter coffee since my marriage. I go for the instant one, as I m not confident to get it right. And frankly, I don't follow blogs generally, as I used to think that no one else could give the perfect recipe like my mom. But I changed my mind after trying recipes from ur blog. All credits to u. Now whenever it is too late to call my mom (as I live in UK), I used to just login to ur blog and start cooking straight away. 🙂
Love ur recipes and especially the images that u post along with the recipes. 🙂
And i am still waiting for Adhirasam recipe from you. Also can u please post recipe for masala tea/ chai. My husband loves it, but I m no good at it. :-(.
Thank you so much Haasini to write such a sweet comment 🙂 I will sure try adhirsam b4 this diwali and post 😉 Will also post masala chai soon! Keep visiting!!
Totally "Narasus Kaapi" Shot 🙂
Aaa haa... all i wanna do is have a cup of filter kaapi right now 🙂
What a lovely pictorial! Filter Kapi like this makes me weak in the knees! I am a tea drinker, i admit, however, i'd *never* say no to this coffee!
Congratulations! on the DMBLGiT win Raks..
Glad to have found your blog 🙂
Even though I don't drink coffee, filter kaapi almost runs in the veins of my family.. Mom and dad have to have their quota daily!
Corporate to Kitchen
This looks so tempting.. I miss this coffee big time
Today, I was browsing some old news papers and for my surprise, your filter coffee image was there in that news paper! Its not a recipe post, but some other writing. I don't know whether they have took your permission to use the image or not. But there's no name or copyright mentioned on that pick.
I have the hard copy of that news paper, but couldn't find the soft copy for that day on the net. Its a Kannada magazine, 'Kannadaprabha' dated 5th June 2012.
Better you put a watermark on the images which you put here. Else, simply we will put on our efforts and the credit goes to somebody else!
Hi Really very happy tht you posted filter coffee recipe.. my mil too prepares only filter coffee... my hubby loves filter coffee which i dont know to prepare.. i tried once but the coffee was like hot water ( too watery to taste... hope you understand)
so i preapre only bru/sunrise coffee..
Thanks a lot you hv even specified even the exact amount of quantity required for recipe...
even i hv the small coffee filter as shown in the image...
I hv one doubt.. you hv specified tht u roughly calculate 1 &1/2 tsp coffee powder per person.. how much glass of water should i add for 1&1/2 tsp coffee powder approximately ?
Thanks 🙂 For 1 serving u can use approximately 1/4 cup water I think
thanks a lot for prompt reply..:)
i am from Lucknow and while returning from Bangalore 2 days before...i bought cothas coffee powder....but was not able to make it properly...thanks a lot for sharing the recipe
I followed through the first few steps. I am using coffee day's filter coffee powder. Somehow my decoction turns out to be very thin, even after pressing the powder well. Tried it several times but no luck. I end up drinking watery coffee 🙁
Make sure you boil the water well.
One more thing, try to add more coffee powder or reduce your water you are pouring. Sure you will get thick coffee. Hope this helps. Let me know if you still have the problem
very nice explanation.thanks
it sooooo good
filter coffee is very delicious
22 year old/ young single boy from Delhi says thank you! cheers.
Beautiful clicks Raaji. Romba Nanna Irunthathu.Loved this post and makes me remember and miss my Coffee Day times back in India. By the way we need to add sugar while storing the decoction in the refrigerator as it is a natural flavour locking agent.The refrigerant has the tendency to remove natural flavour from stored foods and coffee being volatile loses flavour. Maybe thats why your MIL says to add sugar. Anyway its best to have it brewed fresh. I hope i can come over to your place for a cup of fresh coffee.Heeeeeeeeee!! I am not sure what blend of Coffee Day you use. My mom uses Pure Peaberry and sometimes mix it with Peaberry and Plantation A in a 75 : 25 ratio without chicory. Try this next time.
Good one.. For a tasty coffee.. You should add milk on top of Coffee dicoction.. which will give different type of taste and you will love it..
Good one. Add milk on top of coffee dicoction..(my tip)...you will get fantastic taste.. Enjoy...
good tips mam but you add milk in coffee decoction it will mix well......... try it
good tips mam but you add milk in coffee decoction it will mix well......... try it
Hi, thanks for explaining the authentic procedure of making filter coffee. I recently relocated to Bangalore and started making filter coffee after reading your blog however, I have not yet gained expertise in it.
I prepare coffee at home using 2&1/2 teaspoons of Cothas House hold coffee and fill half of the medium sized coffee filter with hot water. But I never get a thick coffee decotion you have shown in the left image but I always end up with the one shown in right image. What ratio of coffee:chicory is recommended to get best results (80% coffee, 20% chicory OR 70% coffee, 30% chicory OR no chicory at all)?
I think it has chicory. 20%. Make sure you press it tightly with your fingers and try using more coffee powder and see. Say 3-4 tsp.
I could almost taste it. Wonder if they are available in K-Cup style
Hey this is fabulous!! but i need proportions! how much water should i add to the coffee powder?
also, sometimes the water just does not go down because the holes get blocked.. what should i do in that case?
Roughly water level should be double the height you add coffee powder. Before making coffee, show the holes over direct flame for 30 seconds and tap gently over counter top. Helps to remove the blocks.
Super!! im gono try some right after office today 🙂 Cuz after i read ur article, i feel i have been making coffee wrong all these years!!
Also, one BIG mistake that i have been making all these years is that once i add the water, i move the plate with handle up and down!! i think that is what is not giving me the desired result!
Like you explained, i should just add the coffee, press down the coffee with my fingers, gently place the plate with handle and then pour the hot water and close the lid.
That will give me that awesome thick decoction 🙂
I'll make some today and share the experience with you tomorrow 🙂
This pic. So awesome it makes me to pick and drink it. It smells here from the picture

Filter coffee has been ringing in my mind (dunno why) for the last couple of days and that's how I landed here. I don't have this coffee machine at home, and I have Sunrise instant coffee powder. How can I make filter coffee with it? Sorry, I have zero knowledge about filter coffees. Is it possible to make filter coffee without that machine? If yes, how?
Pictures are missing again!!
Wow !! I have been fan of Filter Coffee from days it was available in Mumbai like cutting chaay, but it is out now, It could be only found in some Southindian Specialty restaurants, I have never known the recipe. I will surely try and update the experience. !!!
After cooking and writing skills its the photography that enhances your cookbook to awesome.So eager to know what SLR and lens used.Whoever done this,its a brilliant esply the pic with caption - degree coffee..keep doing well.
This particular pic which you want to know is with Nikon D40X along with kit lens 18-55mm
hi can you pls tell me where can i get freshly ground indian coffee powder here in sg..?
perfect filter coffee from someone who s not a grt fan of it..:):) love ur clicks!!
Freshly ground Indian coffee, I don't think we get it here. But Kothas is really good, you should try.
Coffee is all about COLOR . FLAVOR and TASTE , these can be achieved only by correct blend of P-Berry , Plantation and Arabica , this is what i learnt by years of experimentation finally FROTH further enhances , the coffee i prepare the froth remains till the last SIP !! ::)
Very nice storage containers for both coffee and sugar.plz tell how can we search for such containers online
It's a set of jars - You can google "coffee sugar tea jar set" May be you will find one in amazon or ebay.
Can you please tell me the exact quantity of water to be added? As you mentioned for 4 teaspoons of coffee powder how much water to be added?
(Sorry if it sounds silly question)
3 or 4 tbsp 🙂
where do u get cothas in Singapore... i used to buy from Mustafa everytime and now no more stock... 🙁 I tried almost all tamil stores in Thekka...
I got once from mustafa too, if not get it in Murugan traders next to Saravana bhavan. You can also check with Abdul Rahim store, UpperDickson road.
Great post. Thank you! I live in the US. My mom had brought Brookbond coffee from India and the coffee came out very authentic, when I followed your recipe. When it finished, I bought Cotha's and Bru's coffee powder but it did not taste like filter coffee 🙁 I do not know how these brands are so much recommended by you and other filter coffee lovers.. Am I doing something wrong?
Rajii U r tempting me to drink coffee.. so nice perfect.. I want to visit your home once at least for this filter coffee..
Filter coffee making is easy and interesting process where the filter extracts the whole content from the powder and when the decotion mixes with pure milk the colour lightens, taste increases and our mood swings positively. That is the greatness of filter coffee.
you are my filter coffee Rockstar! #gokaphi
Raks you are jus awesum.love ur recpies.i m a star cook at my home all bcoz of ur recipe.
Can u plz guide where in sng you bought these coffee powder(ntuc?mustfa?)

Hi this is available in mustafa sometimes and murugan stores has it most of the times. Next to saravana bhavan. This can be made only for brewing deciction and cannot use directly in milk
hey do you know where i can purchase Jayanthi Cofee, gold blend in singapore?
I am not sure sruthi, I have not seen it here in SG
