South Indian Filter Coffee
I looked out of my window with half open eyes - still wondering whether to climb out of bed or tug back into my comfort blanket. The sky was black and the large clouds were moving towards me. I heard a tapping on the window and then it became a pitter-patter. The clouds spat out their beads of water as people ran for cover outside and umbrellas were open. Puddles began pinking as the rainfall became heavier. What a perfect climate to enjoy a cup of freshly brewed filter coffee
