about us

How our Journey Began

“Iyers Filter Coffee” comes from a visionary named ‘Panchapikesa Iyer’ who inspired us to make finest coffee and he happens to be one of the first filter coffee makers in Tamilnadu.

Panchapikesa Iyer was the proprietor of Lakshmi Vilas, also called as Pasumpal (cow’s milk) Coffee Club, where coffee would flow from 5 am till late evening. The milk was sourced from 12 Milch cows in the cattle-shed right behind the hotel. Being on the main road, every bus passing that way used to stop for a tumbler (drinking glass).

What We Do

Following his footsteps, we use finest coffee seeds which are sourced from organically grown farms. Coffee is roasted in earthen pots on wood fires till that splitting sound is heard. They are crushed by a manual hand grinder. If you get 80 grams after roasting every 100 grams, it is a sign of high quality coffee.
We believe there is no coffee without chicory but refuse to sell coffee with more than 10 percent chicory to maintain the actual Flavor of Robusta & Arabica. Coffee does not owe completely to the powder but to the purity of undiluted milk used in the preparation of the coffee. Our Cafes test the purity of milk using a  lactometer and ensure the best quality of milk is used to make coffee.
