Worthy coffee sets for connoisseurs

 

Coffee aficionados owe their gratitude to Kaldi, the Ethiopia goat herder, who by astute observation, noticed his goats became more spirited when they ate the coffee berries. Also to Pope Clement VIII, who in 1615, was asked to make a decision on the acceptance of coffee drinking, because the Clergy in Venice had condemned the drink as the “bitter invention of Satan”. Upon trying the beverage, he immediately liked it so much he extended his Papal approval.
The nature of tea leaves and coffee grounds influenced the difference in shapes for tea pots and coffee pots. As tea leaves float, it is more pragmatic to place the spout near the bottom of the tea pot to allow the brew to flow out from underneath them. Coffee grounds, on the other hand, sink, so the spout is typically mounted nearer to the top of the coffee pot, allowing the coffee to flow out from above the grounds.
Turkey was one of the early adopters of coffee consumption, and traditionally their coffee pot spouts were made longer, to facilitate cooling of the coffee during pouring, as it was usually consumed without any milk. There also was more added pouring control with the longer spouts and the tall, slender designs didn’t encourage too much agitation of the liquid, so as to assist with the settling of the grounds. Conversely, the more squat, rounded teapots helped the movement of the floating tea leaves, which trapped the heat in the pot, speeding up the drawing of the tea.

The bulky coffee urns were not really built for mobility, so the more refined coffee pots came into favor, to transport the coffee to the customer at the flourishing coffee houses. The tall, slender, straight sided coffee pot could be considered as more masculine then the teapot with its rounded, curvaceous shape. It’s hard to imagine a knitted cosy on a coffee pot. In the past, cafes and coffee haunts were frequented more by men while women frequented the more formal tea establishments. In the Middle East, ground cardamom seed is commonly added to coffee to neutralize the stimulative effects of the beveridge, (2-3 shakes from the dispenser). Also spices such as Vanilla extract, cinnamon and saffron were added.

Handsome coffee sets deserve  fine supporting coffee tables, I’ve also added a selection below.
