The Regency Café au lait

Coffee Milk.
Boil a desert-spoonful of ground coffee, in nearly a pint of milk, a quarter of an hour; then- put into it a shaving or two of isinglass, and clear it; let it boil a few ‘minutes, and set it on the side of the lire to grow. This is a very fine breakfast; it should be sweetened with real Lisbon sugar of a good quality.
Maria Eliza Ketelby Rundell, A New System of Domestic Cookery, 1806
