  1. I’ve used the Italian stovetop espresso (bialetti 3 cup) maker with Narasu’s coffee + chicory from an Indian store. I’m pretty content with the taste I get. I love my coffee hot. While the coffee is brewing I heat the milk (microwave is fine. Stovetop is better. Recommend whole milk). The final temperature when they are both done is exactly what I would want. Steamy hot coffee !!
    Filter cost (one time investment + spares usually can be changed once an yr): Approx $30. Not dishwasher safe. Coffee powder: approx $8/mo. Making time: 10 mins.

  4. Sure, I’d suggest one of three methods. The goal is to make the decoction as close to South Indian style as possible.
    First obtain coffee with chicory.
    Get it from an Indian grocery if you can, and check to make sure it has chicory. I suggest using about 15% chicory, and many coffee powders have as much as 50% chicory, so blend with plain ground coffee if necessary. If you can’t find Indian coffee powder with chicory, substitute something like Cafe du Monde New Orleans style ground coffee with chicory.
    Second prepare the decoction.
    If you have an Indian grocery near you, obtain a proper Indian coffee maker (it looks a little like a giant version of a Vietnamese coffee maker), and make like you would in India. 🙂 Put the powder in the metal container, cover with the perforated disk, and brew decoction with hot water.
    If you have an aeropress, prepare like you would for a cold drip, but use hot water, slowly pouring it through the ground coffee.
    If you have a “coffee sock” prepare the ground coffee and hot water in a large vessel, steep till it’s very strong and filter it through the coffee sock. Make it at least twice as strong as you would for coffee you’d drink directly.
    Finally prepare the coffee.
    Boil milk (and sugar to taste, or add it later) and mix with the decoction. Pour it back and forth between two cups to froth it, and serve immediately. Decoction will keep for a day.
