A cup of coffee - real coffee - home-browned, home-ground, home-made,
that comes to you dark as a hazel-eye, but changes to a golden bronze as you
temper it with cream that never cheated, but was real cream from its birth,
thick, tenderly yellow, perfectly sweet, neither lumpy nor frothing on the Java:
such a coffee is a match for twenty blue devils, and will exorcise them
all. -- Henry Ward
Beecher, "Eyes and Ears"
