The distinct aroma of the roasted coffee beans with slight bitterness is something that remains common across all varieties of coffees. But it would not be wrong to say that nothing can beat the warmth that our homely filter coffee offers. Often served in a tumbler, filter coffee originates from the southern region of India. Its preparation is quite minimalistic due to which filter coffee is considered relatively cheaper and is usually prepared at home. And, on top of it, relishing a cup of filter coffee at home is both comforting and easy on the pocket. However, enjoying the same at a fancy cafe or restaurant might require you to shell out some extra money. A picture of a Starbucks standee has gone viral as it advertises a cup of filter coffee priced at INR 290.

Shared on Twitter, the advertisement depicts an elderly woman sitting next to a young man as they both enjoy some filter coffee. “Ajji approved filter coffee for Shivvu,” the text on the banner read. “Starting at INR 290,” it added.
The photo was posted with the caption, “Dear Starbucks, there’s literally no Ajji in God’s green earth who’ll approve a filter coffee for ₹290 +taxes”.
