La MARQUE qui veille aux grains
Café Quotidien (translates as daily coffee) then as now primarily targets professionals.
The motto aludes to the French expression veiller au grain meaning to be careful or alert. It's worth noticing that the advert displays aux grains. The use of the plural form changes the motto in a play on words meaning to keep an eye on the quality of the beans.
I feel that the brand's ranger has a distinct eastern complexion. Could that be an indication about the origin of the coffee?

Two layers of the same brand.
Leroux comes into existence in 1858 when father Leroux buys a small factory —located in Orchies and started by F. Herbo in 1840— for his son Alphonse. After many years the firm becomes a dominant chicory player having almost the entire market in France.
Was founded in 1825 by the family Van Lier in Halle (Belgium) and provided a living to many people of the city.
Pacha (brand of Chicobel since 1975) was the belgian counterpart of Leroux.
In 1992 Leroux acquired Chicobel and shut the factory in Halle down. The brand Pacha continues to live.

This wall was restored in 2004 —based on the neighbourhood's people's recollection of the original from the 1930s. In 2011 the city allowed the painting to be destroyed in order to refurbish the building.
It is a brand of Vispak which was born in 1972 and in 1974 became, according to their website, «the leader in the production of special ground coffee for catering and espresso coffee».
A džezva is a kind of small copper pot with a long handle and a high neck, like the one shown in the mural. The difference between Bosnian and Turkish coffee is that in Bosnian custom the drinker decides how sweet he wants his coffee. The Turkish way of doing is that the maker of the coffee adds sugar to his taste during the brewing.
