Making Good Coffee Takes System fiy tomtit M, Coffee, the favorite American beverage. Most, of us feel that we must begin the day with a potful rather than just, a cup. Most of out 5 - coffee today romes from Bro/il. The source of our coffee beans WHS originally Arabia. it may surprise you to learn that the coffee bean is the seed of the berry which is picked when it is fully ripe. After the pulp has been removed the beans are roasted and often blended, always by experts. Because the original coffee bean came from Mocha in Arabia, and from- the island of •lava, for many years good quality coffee was called by one name or the other.. Today most of us buy by brand. At one time coffee was often adulterated with chickory, which is still used in some countries of Europe and in our own South because the final blend Is liked better than the straight coffee. Drip Coffee Allow 2 level or 1 rounded tablespoon very finely ground coffee for each measuring cup (8-ounce) freshly boiling water. Put coffee In strainer, cover with upper part, and pour in freshly boiling water. Cover, and allow to remain in a warm place uhlil water has finished dripping through the coffee. Remove .strainer containing coffee grounds and water re- rcptacle. Cover and serve. If a stronger beverage is desired, use more ground coffee; 'never pour the dripped coffee through the grounds a second time, as this produces a bitter flavor. Percolated Coffee Allow 2 level or 1 rounded tablespoon steel-cut coffee to each measuring cup (8-ounce) freshly drawn cold water or freshly boiled water. Place water in pot and coffee in the strainer, and heat. Aftef coffee begins to percolate, lower heat and allow to bubble gently from B to 12 minutes, or until the bubbles appear foamy through the glass top. Remove the strainer containing coffee grounds. Over- percolation produces a bitter beverage. DonH Overcook Lamb By EDITH M. ttAKBEtt (not be offered \vilh it.
