I happened to visit Kumbakonam and picked 2 places that my readers would love to see in terms of finding great coffee. But wait. What exactly is ‘Degree Coffee’?

As mentioned in Katchutravels “Coffee is a mix of Decoction and Milk, and the Degree Coffee is basically using the first decoction of the day, with boiled milk at a particular temperature around 110 degrees (and hence the ‘Degree’ in the name). The first decoction is also sometimes called as the first degree”

So if you find your self in Kumbakonam and have an hour, what should you do, where should you go for Caffeine memories?
