Through ancestral kitchens, gourmet restaurants, exotic vegetable farms, modern agriculturists, heirloom aficionados… One of India’s most respected food writers has been there, eaten that and knows that there is no love more sincere than the love of food.
Coffee in India is booming. Cafés are spouting all over, newer and more exotic blends are making their way into the market, and drinking coffee, on a larger level, has become a sign of modernity. This hip, trendy image of coffee isn’t new, though. Decades back, southern India saw the rise of a special kind of filter coffee, and it stood for everything that coffee is for India today. It was the hallmark of the contemporary, middle class, south Indian home. But, it’s not something you’d easily find at a café today. Can kaapi, as it is often termed, find a place in modern-day India’s coffee drinking culture? The Real Food Podcast finds out.
