Hello Kaapi Enthusiasts,
We wanted to share the joy of making kaapi and hope this helps you brew the perfect cup of kaapi at home. Traditionally, Kaapi is made with a Decoction filter and served with a Davara & Tumbler. However, you can always make a good cup of kaapi using your chemex/french press/ coffee maker/ espresso machine. Yippee!
Step1: Add 2-3 Tbsp in the first compartment of the filter.
Step 2: Using the plunger, level the kaapi powder to make it compact in compartment one.
Step 3: Add Steaming hot water to the first compartment till the line of control! & Let it Brew (10-15 mins tops and you buy some time to boil / steam milk)
Step 4: Once the decoction settles in the lower compartment of the filter, add it to the davara ( or any coffee mug) . The decoction would be hot, so be careful trasnferring it into the Davara cup.
Step 5: Add hot, frothy milk to the cup ( tastes best if it is whole milk, can be substituted with other types of milk as well)
Step 6: Pour the Kaapi back & forth to let it aerate. Add sugar if you'd like & your decadent kaapi is ready!
P.S - The filter makes around 2 cups of kaapi. We are working on a quick video as well, stay tuned! Happy Kaapi-ing.
