Praise of Coffee : an excerpt of a French book dating of 18th Century :
If you want to live without trouble, Living healthy, Seven Days of the week,Take good coffee: It preserves you from disease, its virtue drive out, la Migraine and inflammation, Cold and melancholy. Its strength is unrivaled, Against feeling sick ; The pineal gland finds its force from it ; When you put milk healed chest in the blood it will strengthen its circulation.I do agree. But only with a Good coffee origin though.
In the entire machine [...] It opens up ideas For the most learned Authors And provides thoughts To the great preachers: The fibers of the brain are awakened by it, And the memory has The traces of a Sermon, Much better printed.
A bit of History about the french "café au lait" ; Coffee with Latte.The French, quite quickly, added water, milk and Sugar. Coffee, in the 18th century became the object of a veritable madness to the Court and in the city, nobles, bourgeois or craftsmen, everyone wanted a petit dejeuner, as a cup of coffee with milk. Gourmets used to put on the stove a pint of milk, once simmer, they mingled one shot of coffee powder and let boil for half an hour, stirring the mixture constantly. It was necessary then to let it rest and it is clearly drawing to ten or twelve hours. Then warmed in water bath at low fire, and they could drink it.
Indeed, they were very patient :)
Late 18th century, all classes of society were consuming latte. Most women of Paris, even those of the least classes easy, breakfast now with this fruit native of India, which was not known in France two hundred years ago, this taste delighted also peasants in the countryside.
And throughout early 19th century, an author wrote:
Starting the day with a french "cafe au lait" bowl still remains a must in France, while having a decent "petit déjeuner".Coffee with milk became a food essential, even for the less wealthy. Is there anyone early riser who has never seen in the streets of Paris itinerant coffee merchant or stationary, and the working classes taking up their economic moka? Are you running to the capital, your sense of smell savoring here and there exhaled the sweet smell of the coffee roaster limonadier or grocer. Tuck yourself at home, you are still smelling fragrant incense when he spreads powder from the grinder where it has just been crushed; either milk or cream water, coffee has become essential today for all classes of society.
Surely, either faience, ceramic, or fine porcelain Coffee Bowl ever sounds as a very nice gift to anyone, regardless of the generations.
In the past, Size, colors, patterns, materials used for manufacturing cafe bowls made them Unique and Rare.
Note: Pay attention to hand-wash only antique, vintage, retro coffee bowls, those bowls can't be used into microwave too ( dating of early 1900s up to early1980s).
Thank you for reading & Enjoy your Coffee First :)
