Filter Coffee
Is a form of coffee made with milk, sugar and coffee decoction. The name derives from the filter. A coffee filter is a coffee-brewing utensil, usually made of stainless steel. It is used to prepare filter coffee, the form of coffee common in India. It comprises two long cylindrical compartments with a lid, with a perforated bottom for the upper compartment. The upper compartment is half-filled with coffee powder (common varieties include Peaberry, Plantation-A and Robusta) and filled to the brim with boiling water. The decoction collected in the lower compartment is used to make filter coffee. This form of coffee is common throughout India and especially popular in the southern states of Karnataka.

Its principal product was bulk-roasted coffee, which was delivered to grocery stores in sacks and drums and was stored in bins to be scooped out for the customer.

French Press
The French press is the best way to control the brewing time and temperature. The French press offers unparalleled flavor due to perfect extraction time and delivery of the volatile oils that are often trapped in filters. A French press is also the least expensive brewer available. To brew in a French press: boil the correct amount of water, freshly grind the beans using a course setting, remove the plunger, place the grounds at bottom of the glass, add the hot water, stir by shaking, and after 4-5 minutes press the plunger down to separate the grounds from the extracted coffee.

French Roast
Also known as Heavy or Spanish Roast. This roasting style is darker than American Raost and approaches that of espresso. The roast may vary in color from dark brown to nearly black and the flavor can vary from rich and bittersweet to thin-bodied and burned.

Also known as foam, froth describes milk that has been rendered thick and foamy by aeration with hot steam.
