The Picayune Creole Cook Book (1909) states that “The morning cup of Café Noir is an integral part of the life of a Creole household. The Creoles hold as a physiological fact that this custom contributes to longevity, and point, day after day, to examples of old men and women of fourscore, and over, who attest to the powerful aid they have received through life from a good, fragrant cup of coffee in the early morning.”
“A cup of gourmet coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent.”
