That old black magic

Detail, 1943 magazine ad for Columbia Records saxophonist Horace Heidt. First line of ad: "Did you ever see a magician pull a gnu out of an old coffee pot?" Merlin knows that the dung of the wildebeest reduces the bean's natural acidity, resulting in a more savory brew. Just like Kopi Luwak.
