Fancy Coffee Pouring

Why do the old school waiters in fancy dining establishments make such a show of pouring coffee with a great distance between the coffee pot and their patron's cup and saucer? Is it something they learn in "Fancy Waiter's School? Did they learn it from their waiter-master when apprenticing? Are you envisioning what I mean: the cup held below waist level and the (usually silver) coffee pot held at least to nipple level? What's the reason? It's "a thing" with 'em, ain't it?
