Seite 24 - Jirough it, containing a pound of coffee newly roasted. In another room, exposed to the effluvium occasioned by the clearing out of...

Seite 23 - Numerous experiments with roasted coffee prove that it is the most powerful means, not only of rendering animal and vegetable effluvia innocuous, but of actually destroying them.

Seite 12 - The manufacture of a factitious coffee from the roasted root of chicory appears to have originated in Holland, where it has been practised for more than a century. It remained secret until 1801, when it was introduced into France by M. Orban of Liege and M. Giraud of Horning, a short distance from Valenciennes.
Seite 64 - Put two ounces of ground coffee into a stewpan, which set upon the fire, stirring the powder round with a spoon until quite hot, when pour over a pint of boiling water ; cover over closely for five minutes, when pass it through a cloth, warm again, and serve.
Seite 6 - In various parts of the metropolis, but more especially in the East, are to be found 'liver bakers.' These men take the livers of oxen and horses, bake them, and grind them into a powder, which they will sell to the low-priced coffee-shop keepers at' from fourpence to sixpence per pound — horses' liver coffee being the highest price.
