"Use a tablespoonful ground to a pint of boiling water [less than a quarter of what we would use today].

Boil in tin pot twenty to twenty-five minutes. If boiled longer it will not taste fresh and lively.

Let stand four or five minutes to settle, pour off grounds into a coffee pot or urn.

Put fish skin or isinglass size of a nine-pence in pot when put on to boil or else the white and shell of half an egg to a couple of quarts of coffee."
