The best way of making coffee is to put the ground coffee into a wide-mouthed bottle over night, and pour rather more than half a pint of water upon each ounce and a half, to cork the bottle, in the morning to loosen the cork, put the bottle into a pan of water, and bring the water to a boiling heat; the coffee is then to be poured off clear, and the latter portion strained; that which is not drunk immediate ly is kept closely stoppered, and heated as it it wanted.
