Story of Filter Kaapi

Whether you are a coffee person or not, you cannot ignore its aromatic fragrance. Filter coffee, or filter kaapi, is a potent concoction that feels extremely pleasant to smell and sip.

Baba Budan, a Muslim saint from Chikmagalur, is believed to have smuggled seven coffee beans from Yemen. He then successfully planted Arabica coffee in the Chandragiri Hills of Chikmagalur, Karnataka, where the production of coffee began to flourish.

In the 19th century, the British marketed this coffee, and its popularity saw a sharp surge in the South. Within the century, brewing filter coffee became an everyday practice in South Indian households.

Coffee was still a rarity in the country’s northern half. During mid 20th century, the establishment of the famous Indian Coffee House bridged this divide.

Generations have been raised on espressos and lattes, but we believe the Indian filter coffee is equally glorious and here to stay for many generations.
