of experience in growing coffee; years of selecting
and Improving; years of testing and proving, are
behind every ounce. "
Value does not depend on price, but the price is
based upon value. Chase & Sanborn's Coffees are far
more economical than cheap brands whose sole merit
lies In lowness of price, because they go further, to
say nothing of the healthful enjoyment of drinking
(lie world's best coffee.
We solicit the first order your own satisfaction
will bring the continual use.
Put up in one and two pound tin cans, under
seal and name of Chase & Sanborn. Put .up also In
parchment lined, richly colored, imported fibre bags
thus retaining the strength and freshness of the coffee
