This Is Coffee: A 'Loving Tribute To America's Favorite Stimulant' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

The description on this video, courtesy of the Prelinger Archives, reads, "Loving tribute to America's favorite stimulant." And loving is right. This is 12 minutes of absolute coffee obsession. This 1961 video covers the journey the coffee bean takes to arrive in your coffee pot and the many different brewing methods you can employ to make it drinkable.

We would love to count how many times the classic, vintage narrator uses the word "coffee," but we just don't have that kind of time. We have to run out for another cup of coffee.
