This is an advertisement for Branson's coffee extract. The coffee plant originated in Ethiopia and beverages made from its beans have been popular for thousands of years, the earliest recorded examples of people eating and drinking coffee are from 800 BC. Drinking coffee became popular in Europe in the 17th century when coffee houses were set up as meeting places for traders. By the 19th century people could enjoy the beverage in their homes, an endless variety of different flavoured beans could be bought and ground and brewed to make a tasty drink. This leaflet is advertising Branson’s coffee extract, substitutes like this would have been much cheaper than real coffee.
