The pleasures of coffee are by no means dissipated in the warm season, when '' hot coffee" is not needed as a means of defying the discomfort of cold weather. Cold coffee is a delicious beverage when well made. Coffee ice made of strong coffee frozen in a freezer and served in cups with whipped cream is a dainty dessert or a convenient part of the afternoon tea menu ; coffee soda is a peculiar summer drink, and few people accustomed to the morning cup of coffee make any difference on account of the weather in this most important feature of the breakfast-table. An expert in coffee maintains that the best coffee is made in the old-fashioned tin coffeepot. "Don't give me any new patent arrangements for making coffee," he says ; " the old tin- pot is the only kind of cooking untensil that preserves the aroma and the full flavour of the coffee." After the coffee has been boiled and settled, pour it in good strength upon a cup halt filled with cream and hot milk. Most coffee epicures have a beverage prepare i with full strength that will give a delicious flavour to a cup of rich cream and boiled milk. Few who enjoy the drink realise the process necessary for its preparation or understaud the many interesting circumstances connected with its market. Even the berry, with its associations with trjpical countries, suggests many peculiar facts in regard to people and politics. Inquiring of wholesale representative dealers of the city whether the emancipation of slaves in Brazil had affected the coffee supply from that country, one learns that, as the slaves were pledged to complete the year's crop after the emancipation, no difference in the trade hris been noticed, although there are rumours of a decrease in next year's supply. The crop from Brazil has been especially large this year. An odd feature in the coffee trade is the difference between Europeaa and American taste. People of Europe demand the coffee from Central America and the West Indies, while Americans have a decided preference for Java coffee. According to American taste, the best cup of coffee is Java mixed with Mocha. The 30 other varieties common in the trade are of many qualities, from the coarse Liberian to the delicate pea-berry of Java.
