Weekly Photo Challenge – Fresh


When I saw the words ‘Fresh’ and ‘Taste’ in this week’s photo challenge, the first thing that came to my mind was ‘Filter Coffee’. Chennai is rather famous for its filter coffee. It is typically served in an ever-silver tumbler and a saucer-like thing called ‘dabarah’. Be it Narasus ‘kaapi’ or Kumbakonom Degree coffee, almost every Chennaiite’s day starts with a steaming cup of coffee and ‘The Hindu’ paper. Although I am not a coffee person, I never miss a chance to taste the ‘Kaapi’s in Chennai Hotels.

This picture was taken in Hotel Saravana Bhavan, a famous south Indian restaurant in India.

    Love filter coffee!! We even took filters and scrounged around to find the same brands in Chicago! So, we’re keeping up the love even here!
    Delicious post!

    I am a tea drinker. First time I visited Chennai (almost two decades ago), I had hard time finding at the station, all the vendors were screaming cappy (coffee in their accent) and I had to actively look for one who would brew hot tea for me!! 🙂

  11. That looks so delicious! I want one right now, no make that two!

  12. This is indeed FRESH ! 🙂

  13. Ah! That’s a very interesting cup of coffee, my dear Vandy! I like how the saucer is also a cup, so you can drink what you spill– a very clever design, that. : )

    The next time I’m in Chennai, we must have coffee together. A nice cuppa kaapi, and a bowl of Bertie Bott’s Beans– yes, that sounds delightful. I’m looking forward to it! : )
