here goes my entry for the monthly cluck event with the theme coffee and tea
TRADITIONAL KOPI :ie coffee with condensed milk of toast box
KOPI WAS POPULAR IN SINGAPORE DURING BRITISH COLONIAL PERIOD
THIS ART OF COFFEE BREWING WAS INTRODUCED TO SINGAPOREANS BY HAINANESE WHO LEARNED FROM EUROPEANS
UNIQUE THING ABOUT KOPI IS ADDITION OF SUGAR WHEN THE BEANS ARE ROASTED,ROASTING PROCESS IS CARRIED OUT IN DRUM AT 200 deg celsius,
SUGAR GETS CONVERTED INTO CARAMEL AND FORMS A THIN BURNT FILM AROUND THE COFFEE RESULTING IN DARKER AND AROMATIC BREW WITHOUT THE BITTERNESS.
KOPI IS BREWED BY STRAINING THE COFFEE POWDER THROUGH LONG SACK AND PULLING THE COFFEE FROM LONG SPOUTED POT.
