How to Make Coffee, Circa 1918
The Cafe Stage article by Brian Faulks

An interesting perspective on experts' advice in making coffee, from 1918; it was around this time that the siphon coffee maker became popular in the US.

Fantastic find Brian!

Also like that Library of Congress research resource. If Disney hadn't gotten their Mickey Mouse Copyright extension, we'd be able to search newspapers right up to the late 1940s now. I'd love to find the first reference to espresso coffee :)

I did find this, a very curious article on coffee in Costa Rica in 1899.

Fantastic article!  Caused me to pull out and admire my antique McKee Glass Siphon brewer.  Truly artistic and amazing brewers...

Much of this article is also in the book

All About Coffee, by William H. Ukers
http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/28500

Compiled circa 1922, the copyright has expired and the book is considered public domain.

Excellent find, BTW.

Very cool.  It's interesting to see that, with the exception of espresso, coffee preparation hasn't really changed that much.

I don't own a siphon, mostly because I don't have room for another coffee gadget, and I love them all, but it really makes me want to go buy one.

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

Careful.  It can become obsessive.  I had 8 at the last count.

I have often used a siphon, from my first days in Japan. I just posted a new article I wrote on my website (ishamcook.com), "The Chinese-Japanese Cultural Chasm Illustrated at Starbucks." Starbucks of course doesn't use siphon makers, but I discuss siphons in a lengthy digression in the article.

Long before Starbucks and specialty coffee (as we know it) came to Singapore, the place to go for that special coffee was UCC. Syphon coffee was their game, long before it was fashionable here in North America. I have fond memories was going to UCC in my younger days. Sadly, they’ve all but faded from the scene there with the proliferation of Starbucks and similar cafes.
