coffee @ work : experiment #4

Coffee @ Work

This is my quest to  enjoy a freshly brewed cup of specialty coffee at work without the hassle of the elaborate  setup as at home!!
there are so many misses, many more surprises and a few success on this mission!!
so tag along on the crazy-train. Destination : One Hot Delicious Cup of Specialty Coffee!!

Experiment # 4 : The Decoction!!!!

So i was completely inspired by many coffee pages on Instagram that were selling “decoctions” as coffee pouches or in little bottles so i want to make my own. 

The Process

  • So i started off making decoction like any good south indian ponnu would – the SI filter. 
  • Keep in mind, i want “black” coffee. typically the decoctions work best with milk/foam or variants that take the edge off and mask the sour flavours while just makes it more apparent.


  • I made a SI Decoction with Specialty Coffee. Super easy to make. Zero effort required.
  • The decoction in a bottle is super handy to carry. All i have to do is add in hot water!!


  • Utter fail. Oily and tasted “stale” in just a few mins.
