I Real Java, I mean, has, on account of heavily reduced production, become an expen? sive coffee. If you want it, I have it, fine old Java, not a grain anything else in it; but I can't sell it roasted for less than forty cents, nor can any one else ; it just can't be done. You know I buy it in the green state, and therefore know exactly what I sell. Roasters have found that certain fine Central American [coffees come nearer to Java than any other, and it is a very easy matter to label a package "Java." Now if you want to buy a good substitute for Java I have a very fine Salvador which I sell at thirty cents. You don't pay anything for a fancy label. It is strong, fine and full-bodied. G. W. Ramsay.
