To make strong coffee, use one-half teacup of ARIOSA Coffee, add five or six (according to strength required) teacupsful of boiling water, stir the coffee and the water well at first, and then boil twenty minutes. After taking it off the stove, pour in one-quarter of a teacup of cold water and let it stand a minute, when you will have coffee as clear as amber--for ARIOSA Coffee requires nothing to settle it.
Never scour the inside of your coffee pot, as by so doing you will wear the tin off and expose the iron. A bit of iron the size of a carpet tack will render unfit to drink five gallons of the best coffee ever produced, if permitted to come in contact with the coffee after the water is put on it.
     Clean the inside of your coffee pot with hot water only, and dry it in the open air.
