Definition

a 2 piece stainless container used to serve filter coffee in tamilnadu. it consists of a small tumbler and a unique lid which also serves the purpose of keeping the coffee hot in transit (from kitchen to serving area) and an underliner for the tumbler and a cooling container if required. Traditional filter coffee is served piping hot and thus is usually difficult to hot the tumbler by it's rim. Thus some part of the coffee will be poured into the larger container for time-being.

Usage
