A JHmg GHjriHtmaa an2k a fa our fnisfj tor Mth pttrmtfi Our Coffee Boaster has been in operation one week and the results are all that could be desired. Every one who has tried this FEB8H BOASTED COFFEE pronounce it for superior to the ordinary kind. After coffee has been roasted any length of time it deteriorates badly losing much of its strength, color and original flavor. Some of the advantages obtained by using Fresh Boasted Coffee are BETTER COLOB, BETTLB FLAVOR, BETTER TASTE and CLEARER COFFEE. Try some of this ground on our new Elec tric mill.
