What is th secret of first-rate coffea

Literally hundreds of women and a
surprising number of men have asked
me this question in one form or an
other. And it's an Important one for
what can be more blighting to domestic
happiness than a cup of muddy coftev
or coffee improperly "creamed"? And,
on the contrary, what can be more ex
hilarating than a good cup fragrant,
Luckily there's no hidden secret
about making and serving the perfect
coffee it's Just a matter of mindin-

i Selection of Coflee
There are many exeellerit brands of
coffee in the market the choice of one
of these is largely a matter of individ
ual taste. But I do want to say that
usually coffee in the bean retains its
flavor longer than in the ground form
so, If possible, buy the whole beans
and grind your coffee fresh for each
meaL If, however, the breakfast hour
or fifteen minutes is too hectic to
admit of this extra step, at least keep
your ground coffee in an air tight con
tainera glass fruit jar for instance.
And it's well to remember that the
more finely the coffee is ground, the
easier it is to extract its full strength
and flavor consequently finely-ground
coffee is economical and time-saving.
The Coflee Pot
Connoisseurs maintain that coffee
brewed in a metal pot has a less deli
cate flavor than in container of glass,
tone-ware or agate. Whatever kind
of coffee pot you prefer it should be
scoured frequently and occasionally
"boiled out" with water to which a
pinch of baking soda has been added
then rinsed, dried, and left uncovered.
If a percolator is used, the pipe
should be carefully washed every day
with a brush to remove all scum from
the preceding brew.
For drip coffee, if you do not have a
speeial drip coffee pot, an ordinary one
equipped with a double cheesecloth
bag will serve the purpose. The cheese
cloth should be washed in cold water
after using and renewed at least once
a week. Keep the bag always moist.

of food habiu, I am rinding that every
year more and more people prefer
sweetened condensed milk in their cof

and creamy as ordinary milk and fur
thermore already contain mjcr, thus
serving the additional purpose of
sweetening the coffee. Try it for a
few days, and I think you will agree
that the condensed milk gives a delight
