Experts' Expert: Honoré de Balzac on how to prepare coffee

1

From the New Yorker: "Honoré de Balzac is said to have consumed the equivalent of fifty cups of coffee a day at his peak. He did not drink coffee, though — he pulverized coffee beans into a fine dust and ingested the dry powder on an empty stomach. He described the approach as 'horrible, rather brutal,' to be tried only by men of 'excessive vigor.'"

2

"He documented the effects of the process in his 1839 essay 'Traité des Excitants Modernes' ('Treatise on Modern Stimulants')."

Excerpts appear above.

Well, punk — what's it gonna be?
