South Indian Filter Coffee

I have used Green Label coffee Powder. My recent find is Kirkland 100% Colombian coffee from Costco. The taste is very similar to South Indian filter coffee.
Second decoction can also be made using this coffee powder. The coffee won't be as much strong as the one prepared by first decoction.
Alternatively boil milk and keep it ready. Take the coffee mug, add hot boiled milk, sugar followed by decoction.
