Ingredients for 1 cup of coffee

  1. Ground Coffee (coarse) - 20gm
  2. Hot Water (90°C - 95°C) - 200ml

  1. Take ground coffee in a vessel/pot.
  2. Pour hot water over it, stirring evenly.
  3. Cover and let brew for 5 minutes.
  4. Use a tea strainer/channi to strain the coffee into a mug.


  • To avoid coffee fines in your cup, wrap a thin cotton cloth over the strainer before pouring out the brewed coffee.
  • If your preference is coffee with milk, reduce the amount of water by half.
  • If you like the flavour, but would like a less watery beverage, increase the amount of coffee. Decrease the amount of coffee if you find the flavour too pronounced.
  • If your coffee is too sour and salty, increase your brewing time to taste.
  • If your coffee is overly bitter, reduce your brewing time to taste.
