Long before the current "coffee craze," collectors were fascinated with the world of coffee. This colorful, expansive book explores over a thousand antiques with more than 500 color photographs. From grinders to coffee cans, posters to coffee makers, this is a varied collection of over 100 years of coffee antiques from around the world, ranging from the most mundane to the most exotic. The grinder collection alone is the most extensive ever published. The items in each photo are carefully described, and a current market value is given for each. This book is an invaluable reference guide for coffee lovers and for collectors of country store memorabilia and antique advertising.
