How to make coffee, circa 1961

A dash of cream and two sugars, please … This is Coffee is a flashback to the home-brewing methods of 1961 America. A lesson in the correct way to make a perfect cup of joe, The Coffee Brewing Institute also takes a look at the drinking styles of different cultures, from the cafe au lait of Paris, to Venice where a cappuccino was topped with whipped cream. Whether you’re partial to a home brew or only drink espressos derived from single-origin beans at your local hole-in-the-wall cafe, watch and chuckle at this vintage video as it demonstrates how to make coffee, circa 1961.
