Coffee had been a popular drink in Britain since the 17th century especially with the upper classes who used to visit coffee houses to conduct business and socialise. The water supply in the 19th century was notoriously bad and so it was sensible to boil water before drinking it, as can be seen from this leaflet this product was exhibited at the International Health Exhibition and was thought to be, ‘…Pure, wholesome and Invigorating.’ There were endless varieties and flavours of coffee available and Clark’s coffee extract would have been like instant coffee today and was much cheaper that the real beans.
