Product FAQs


What is a filter coffee decoction?

A coffee decoction is obtained by allowing hot water to pass through roast and ground coffee powder in a traditional south Indian filter. This decoction is then mixed with hot milk to enjoy a South Indian filter coffee.

What kind of ingredients do you use?

Our decoction is made of coffee, chicory [in some blends] and water. Absolutely nothing else. It is a wholesome natural product with no preservatives, added sugar or additives.

What is the shelf life of the decoction?

The shelf life of the decoction is 8 months in ambient conditions. Once opened the decoction needs to be refrigerated in the original packaging and consumed within 10 days.

Is the decoction vegan?

The decoction by itself is vegan, consuming a black coffee from the decoction is also vegan.

Where do you grow your coffee?

All the coffee used in our decoction comes from the Western Ghats of India. This is a true farm to table product as we are completely backwards integrated. We grow, process, pack and sell the decoction in house.

I noticed small brown particles in my coffee, what are they?

We use coffee and nothing but coffee, the particles are soluble coffee solids that coagulate under storage. Shake the pouch/sachet well before usage and they will dissolve into the liquid.

Can I use the decoction for anything other than hot coffee?

Of course yes, awesome cold coffees, cakes, cocktails etc can be made with our decoction. It can also be used as a coffee topping on ice creams.

Can I reheat the decoction?

Any coffee if reheated loses its flavour and charm. Never reheat the decoction directly, add it to hot milk, heat the mixture and beat it up and down for a traditional south indian filter coffee.

Can I drink the decoction directly?

Well, there is no harm in doing that, if that is what your palette prefers, go ahead. If you would like to try a more traditional approach, do visit our recipe page.
