Production And Consumption Of Coffee
UNDER the headings of the different countries where coffee is grown a general idea of the production has been given, but it will be well to tabulate out the total of last year's crops to give some idea of the vastness of the coffee trade of the world, and by inference the enormous amount of capital engaged in it.
Coffee - Preparation For The London Market
LONDON is unfortunately no longer the principal port in Europe to which coffee is shipped. Many other places attract much larger quantities, as is shown by the following table of European stocks on November 1st, 1909.
Valuing Coffee
HAVING traced the coffee from its original place of growth and followed all the processes necessary to the preparation for market, we come naturally to the question of values and how to set about this most difficult but necessary task.
Roasting Coffee
AN old adage, familiar to many, yet quite changed, or rather, impossible to use now in its original sense, runs that Good wine needs no bush. If we reverse and slightly alter the thought we may come to the conclusion that good coffee does need good roasting. Roasting is without doubt the most important part of the coffee dealer's business.
Blending Of Coffee
WE may ask, is this always necessary ? To this there can be but one answer : No, it is not necessary, but it is often beneficial. There are certainly a very large number of grocers who are content to use one kind only, and there are many coffees which are perfectly good and useful by themselves.
Coffee And Its Medicinal Properties
THE stimulating and refreshing action of coffee is mainly due to the presence of caffeine and a volatile oil. Caffeine belongs to the group of substances known as alkaloids, which as a class have usually a bitter taste and are only slightly soluble in water.
Coffee Adulterants And Substitutes
THE history of the regulations with regard to coffee and chicory is rather curious, inasmuch as coffee appears to have been adulterated almost immediately after its introduction, and legislative interference was soon necessary.
Increasing The Consumption Of Coffee
MUCH has unquestionably been done of late years to call attention to coffee, and many grocers have reaped a good harvest by persistently endeavouring to cultivate this branch of their business.
Coffee Making
THE making of coffee is another point that the general public require to be educated in. There are probably dozens of patent contrivances each described by their inventor as the only one whereby coffee can be properly made, just as there are scores of recipes which might be tabulated under the heads of simple, elaborate or impossible.
