Coffee (Java, roasted, No. 20 powder) .......................

4 ounces.

Glycerin (pure) ................................................

4 fl. ounces.

Water and Boiling Water (of each sufficient to make)............

1 pint.

Moisten the Coffee slightly with water and pack firmly in a tin percolator; pour on water gradually until four (4) fluidounces are obtained, and set aside; then place the coffee in a clean tin vessel with eight (8) fluidounces of water, and boil for five minutes. Again place the coffee in the percolator with the water, and when the liquid has passed or drained off, pack firmly and pour on boiling water until eight (8) fluidounces are obtained. When cold, mix with the first product and add the Glycerin; bottle and cork well.

The excellence of this extract of coffee, from the manner of its preparation, will be found by experience to be incomparably superior to that made by the formulas usually recommended, the reason being apparent in the first step of the process.
