Definition

The strong, thick, aromatic liquor of freshly roasted and ground coffee, filtered every morning in a million households across the peninsular region of India. This dark and exhilarating brew goes into freshly boiled milk, gets briskly tossed from tumbler to dabara into a frothy potion, often delicately sweetened. The arrival of the morning is thus heralded fragrantly into many southern Indian homes.

Usage

“Amma, can I have a second dose of coffee? The decoction is just perfect today. Must be the fresh coffee powder we got yesterday.”
