    Very interesting history--thanks!  My English friend uses a French press for her coffee.  It's okay, not great.  My husband makes coffee in a Mr. Coffee, after he grinds the hazelnut-flavored beans in a grinder.  It's the best coffee I've ever had, except for the cappuccino in Italy.

    but I love vintage commercials:
    My favorite commercial of all time is Folger's "Home for the Holidays."  They''ve stopped showing it now but they showed it for several years at Christmas time.  The handsome college hunk is dropped off by friends at 5:30 on a snowy morning.  He goes into the house and starts making coffee in the kitchen.  Little sister, who naturally has been awake for some time, runs eagerly into the kitchen and tells him that everyone else is still asleep.  "I know how to wake them up," says Big Bro.  As the delicious aroma fills the house, Mom, Dad, and Big Sister come sleepily down the stairs--Mom screams in delight, "Peter!"

    Tell you what, folks, Handsome Hunk Peter is welcome to come to my house 365 days a year to make coffee!
