Wake up and smell the "kaapi!"

Harini Chandrasekar

Growing up in South India, one of my strongest memories as a child was waking up every morning to the fresh delicious aroma of strong coffee ("kaapi") brewed from dark roasted coffee beans, hand poured and topped with an incredibly smooth foam. I'm astonished even today by how one whiff of coffee always instantly transports me to another world. Do you have any similar memories of a smell that takes you back in time?
