I love this!

I adore old adverts and this one for Finnish coffee from the sixties (or fifties?) takes me right back to my childhood in Tampere. It evokes the smell of the coffee beans my grandmother used to prepare in her wooden grinder. She held the light pine contraption in her ample lap and with a concentrated look on her face turned the handle, and soon the coffee would be ready to be mixed with water and cooked in a copper pan on the stove.  

Childhood in a poster!
