iD Instant Filter Coffee Decoction Review – Lets Brew It

The iD filter coffee has a more complex taste than the regular instant coffee powders. We loved how we could choose the intensity of the coffee based on our preferences.

A blend of Arabica and Robusta coffee beans are finely ground and brewed overnight to make the most authentic cup of filter coffee. In this blend, a small proportion of chicory is added that enhances the aroma, color, and flavor and makes it the traditional Udupi kaapi. However, some days we lack the patience for waiting overnight for a warm cuppa. Those mornings when you need a caffeine boost with the bold filter coffee taste, the iD instant filter coffee decoction is your knight in shining armour.

The iD instant filter coffee does just that. From 20 ml single-use sachets to a 150 ml filter coffee-shaped pack of filter coffee decoction, iD filter coffee was created when authenticity shook hands with innovation. We bought both variants to test them for convenience, taste, and affordability. Do we like this coffee decoction? Is this iD filter coffee a coffee lover’s delight? Let’s find out!

iD Instant Filter Coffee Decoction Review

First things first, this coffee decoction mixed seamlessly with the milk. Unlike traditional filter coffee, we didn’t need to grind coffee beans and brew them overnight. The iD instant filter coffee decoction tasted very authentic.

We tried the iD filter coffee with whole milk, skimmed milk, coconut milk and slim milk over a span of two weeks.

The flavor was richer, more complex, and definitely different when compared to instant coffee. That being said, we are not comparing this instant filter coffee decoction to freshly ground/roasted coffee.

Different people prefer their coffee differently. Some like it milky, some prefer black, some love the overloaded sweetness, some love their coffee strong. What did it for us with this iD instant filter coffee  was the liberty we had to adjust intensity. All we had to do was add warm milk and some sugar to instantly teleport us to Southern India.

Sugar or no sugar, full fat or toned milk, you can customise this as per your preferences. If you haven’t tasted the traditional Udupi kaapi, this will make for a decent first experience.

Final Words

An instant filter coffee decoction that offers the same great taste? Ah, yes! The iD coffee decoction can be the new contender to your homemade filter coffee but without the grinding and brewing process. A blend of coffee and chicory, filter coffee is made by adding a few teaspoons of the powder mix to the second last container of the coffee press. Boiling hot water is slowly poured to the same and finally, the press is placed on top and the container is sealed shut to let the coffee brew to perfection overnight. 

If you find this process relaxing, you could skip this review. However, if you don’t own a filter press and still want to know the hype, give this coffee decoction a go.
