Coffee

Profile AmericaProfile America — Wednesday, December 28th. Millions of bleary-eyed Americans who fumble around in the morning owe a lot to someone they never heard of — James H. Mason of Franklin, Massachusetts. This week in 1865, he received a patent for a coffee percolator. 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. And the percolator has grown into big coffee machines, seen in most offices, and a seemingly ever-growing number of retail coffee shops. It’s clear that Americans love their coffee. We each consume more than 23 gallons of regular and decaf a year, as well as their more sophisticated variations, such as latte and espresso. Profile America is produced by the U.S. Census Bureau: Measuring America–People, Places, and Our Economy.
