    A cauldron is a huge pot, a large vessel, such as a kettle or vat, used for boiling most commonly used hundreds of years ago to cook over fires. Modern people seldom need such big pots outside of a resturant.
    I have seen cannibals boiling the great hunter in a cauldron in old movies.
    Since cauldrons are so big, many bits and pieces can go into it to make one "soup.' The use of the term has become, as you said, a metaphor. In this case the example means that by frequently going to the cafe, Korda was exposed to a vastly differing amount of experiences and a myriad of personality types in the people who frequent the cafe..
