To give the Genuine flavor of Coffee.

--Knighton's Foreign Life in Ceylon furnishes the following hints; derived from long experience, for preparing coffee. The aroma which resides in the essential oil of the coffee berry is gradually dissipated after roasting, and, of course, still more so after being ground. In order to enjoy the full flavor in perfection, the berry should pass at once from the roasting-pan to the mill, and thence to the coffeepot; and again, after having been made, should be mixed when almost at boiling heat, with the hot milk. It must be very bad coffee, indeed, which, these precautions being followed, will not afford an agreeable and exhilarating drink.
