American Coffee

In America, where the first inexhaustible cup of coffee was born, according to an anonymous anecdote from the beginning of the 20th century, real coffee needs to be “watery and plentiful just like the Mississippi River”. The story’s main character was a traveller, who, having stopped for the night in a small country hotel in Mississippi, amazed the hotel’s owner by drinking one cup of coffee after the other. Since then, the American way to drink coffee has spread all over the world, also as a beverage to accompany a good meal.
