Malabar Davara Coffee Set
Savour the goodness of South Indian Filter Coffee in our handcrafted pure brass filter coffee set.
Filter coffee is typically drunk from a cup-saucer combination called the Davara tumbler. The rim on the tumbler enables a drip-free pouring from tumbler to saucer for temperature moderation. Till date, filter coffee is drunk from this cup-saucer duo in most South Indian homes.
The Davara tumbler is a cultural and heritage marker. Reminiscent of the times when the elders in the family started the day with a cup of coffee and a newspaper to read. Our Davara tumbler filter coffee set retains the vintage design, with a few design tweaks.
Indulge us in some coffee gyaan while we are at it. Coffee is not a native drink of India and was brought to India, like tea. But did you know Coffee came to India well before the East India company? It is believed that an Indian Sufi saint named "Baba Budan" introduced the coffee plant to India by bringing seven raw beans while returning from Hajj and planted it on the hills of Chikmagalur, Karnataka in 1670. Ever since coffee has become a ritual in homes across the country.

Brass oxidizes on exposure to the atmosphere. In time, your brass products may darken and begin to acquire a patina. Your product needs daily care to prevent oxidation. It should be washed with a soft cloth and a metal cleaning agent like Pitambari, lime & salt, or vinegar & salt or tamarind. Wipe dry immediately or else water residues will leave stains. Some waters cause dark spots on brass. To remove, apply tamarind or vinegar or lime concentrate and leave for 15 minutes. Wash off with clean water.
