The aroma was enough to make our taste buds sing. It felt like a great day for us, the GenZ crew at Sweet Karam Coffee, to invade Janaki Paati's kitchen, not just for the smell of her legendary filter coffee, but for something even more special - a good conversation that will be brewed over cups of her legendary filter coffee.

When some days are “Meh” and our productivity window takes a downward graph, all it takes to jump back on track is a good conversation with our Janaki Paati. 

So, we marched over to our comfort place, towards our comfort zone, and our comfort drink. We settled around the table and the familiar rhythm of the filter gurgling felt like music to our ears. 

Paati, with a twinkle in her eye, nodded her head with a smile welcoming us as if she already knew we’d be invading her kitchen for gossip, coffee, and much more!

"Paati, what's the secret to your legendary filter coffee? It smells incredible!" - the youngest of our Gen Z crew spilled a conversation starter.

We also noticed the brass filter, polished to a shine with its intricate patterns reflecting the rich history of tradition and culture.

With a gentle smile, Paati began preparing the decoction, the cornerstone of any good filter coffee. She measured the perfect ratio of freshly ground coffee powder, the aroma instantly transporting us to a coffee plantation.

As Paati poured the hot water over the coffee powder, a rich, earthy fragrance filled the air, teasing our senses and awakening our anticipation. And the chatty and impatient one among us popped another question “Paati, how long does it take to brew a perfect cup?”

Patience is the key!

While we were busy watching in fascination as the water slowly filtered through the fine mesh of the brass filter, mingling with the coffee powder to create a dark, velvety brew, Paati continued, “Patience is the key here.  For a good five minutes, she patiently allowed the coffee to brew. "This slow and steady process," she explained, 

"Always allow the hot water to dance with the grounds until the very last drop” she continued.

"Ah, there's nothing quite like the aroma of freshly brewed filter coffee," Paati remarked, her voice carrying the warmth of a thousand memories. 

As she expertly transferred the decoction into a traditional stainless-steel tumbler, the sound of metal against metal echoed through the kitchen. The tumbler, adorned with intricate patterns, felt like a relic from a bygone era.

"Next comes the milk," Paati continued, her eyes sparkling with delight. "Freshly boiled and frothy, just the way my grandmother used to make it."

With a graceful flick of her wrist, she poured the steaming milk into each tumbler, the creamy liquid swirling with the rich, dark coffee. The sight alone was enough to make our mouths water in anticipation, each tumbler a work of art in its own right.

A tumbler of her legendary filter coffee!

Finally, with a sprinkle of sugar and a gentle stir, Paati completed the masterpiece, balancing the flavors with the skill of a seasoned chef. As she handed each of us a tumbler of her legendary filter coffee, a sense of reverence filled the room, a silent acknowledgment of the craftsmanship and dedication that went into every cup.

As we took the first sip of Paati's brew, a wave of warmth washed over us, transporting us to a place of comfort and familiarity. 

The conversation flowed effortlessly between us, fueled by the shared love of good coffee and the timeless wisdom of Janaki Paati. 

At that moment, surrounded by the ones we loved and the comforting embrace of tradition, we knew that we had found our little piece of paradise in Janaki Paati's kitchen. Regardless of the season, weather, and time, if there’s something we all crave it is Janaki Paati’s legendary filter coffee.
