F --- Filter Coffee!

As you can see in the picture this is coffee. Maybe you are drinking it while reading this post. Let me tell you more about this drink. There is a difference (most probably) between the one in the picture and the one you might be drinking now. Filter coffee is prepared by a method in which the water passes through the filter only due to gravity and not due to external factors. I might not know all the details considering that I have never prepared coffee 'manually' but I do know that it is the best coffee, far much much better than what is served at restaurants or cafes.  All I know is that my mom uses a two part cylinder like vessel with a filter in the middle separating the top and bottom wherein the bottom part collects the filter, which later is mixed with and sugar. My mom has this magic of perfect brewing and the right proportions of filter and milk.

Chennai is known for its coffee shops, no, not the cafes. Apart from that, there are shops that sell coffee beans to the people. The people here prefer and like to make their own coffee. Nothing can beat the taste of home made coffee. Instant coffee - nah, I don't like that much. Infact, I have bunked last periods of college just to have a cup of coffee within that stipulated time (6 PM).  

Filter Coffee is aromatic, hot, relishing and energising. You couple that with some snacks. You experience the best feeling. 

Contrary to popular belief, Filter coffee is very good for health. Due to the caffeine present in it, it helps us being active all day. This could be substituted for Red Bull. :P
