Coffee has become a go-to beverage for so many in modern years. People use it as their first drink of the day to wake up and gain some energy for the workday. Many often stop by their local Dunkin’ Donuts or Starbucks before work to make sure they’re caffeinated before diving into their work pile. Additionally, you probably have a favorite brand of coffee makers or a favorite mug.
Well, things were a bit different back in the day. Most coffee sets came with a saucer that was used to hold the cup in place if it was too hot to hold by hand. People even drank out of these saucers! And it’s likely that back in your grandparents‘ prime, they, too, drank coffee from the saucer.
