The resulting liquid from straining Boiled Coffee Grounds is called the decoction. Here we show you the steps on making coffee decocotion with a stainless steel coffee filter:
The typical coffee filter consists of two chambers – the upper chamber and the lower chamber. The upper chamber is a perforated container,  where the coffee powder added before adding water.

    • If you do not have a filtering pot, you can try this: Use ground coffee or grind your own coffee beans using a coffee grinder. Place filter paper (available at your supermarket near the coffee), shaped into a cone inside a COFFEE CONE OR funnel. Place the funnel over a coffee mug. add about 2 TBSP of ground coffee per mug and pour a little boiled water first. Wait till the ground coffee is completely dampened. Then pour the required amount and cover the funnel till the water drips through. I did this a long time ago when i didn’t have the perforated coffee filter.
