An article just posted by Food Manufacturing magazine reminds us of a point of local pride:"Monday, December 26th. The millions of Americans who for a century and a half have enjoyed well-brewed coffee can direct their gratitude to James H. Nason of Franklin, Massachusetts.

Now, not only does just about every home in the U.S. have a coffeemaker, but many also grind their own fresh from coffee beans..."
Percolated coffee is a rarity these days, but having grown up on the stuff, this writer finds it preferable to the results of more sophisticated brewing methods. Perhaps our local Starbucks should offer a J.H. Nason special, brewed the old timey way...
