African Filter Coffee

African Filter Coffee

This is a recipe for making filter coffee from the beans. I had coffee beans from Kilimanjaro which tempted me to try this out. It's said that the coffee is generally consumed black. However, I think if you prepare any coffee from the beans, it can be had with milk with the same great flavor.YOU NEED A GRINDER/BLENDER & A COFFEE FILTER
