Filter Kaapi – It’s our first love, our morning motivation, our life-line and our fix for anything and everything from head-ache to heart-ache! ❤
Finding the best filter coffee is like finding your soulmate and in a place where everyone is a coffee connoisseur, the quest to find the best filter coffee could be a little tricky. Well, we tried and here is what we have found out, our ammas make the best coffees and these places come a close second :
Kumbakonam Filter Coffee
Address: Multiple outlets. There is one @ 4/11, GK Sagas Complex , South Mada Street, Near Kapaleeshwar Temple, Mylapore
The sight of this filter coffee in brass davara and tumbler, we have died and reached coffee heaven!!

Address: K.C Enclave, Bazullah Rd, Parthasarathi Puram, T Nagar, Chennai, 600017
Open from 6 am to 8 pm, this one is a relatively new outlet that nails the authentic taste and fragrance of Filter Coffee. The coffee here is without chicory and is served with a few nibbles by the side. True to its name, Coffee Shastra seems to have figured out the science behind coffee making! Price : Rs.23/cup

Madras Coffee House
The way we drink filter coffee is as important as the coffee itself and our Davarahs and tumblers are very much part of our coffee-routine. If some one can convince us otherwise and make us fall in love with filter coffee in a paper cup, that is Madras Coffee House and they did it because of the sheer quality and authenticity of the coffee they offer.
MCH has multiple coffee kiosks across Chennai.

This humble establishment also happens to be home to one of the best filter coffees in Chennai! Rayar’s Mess has stood the test of time and the filter coffee here with their Idli vada, pongal, chutney, sambhar and podi is our idea of perfect breakfast!
