Women Don't Know Good Coffee
but this unique test proves THEY DO
Have You Tasted These
Rare Central American
Coffees That Women
Everywhere Are Changing
To? Try This Interesting
Flavor Test Today!
“'T'HESE are marvelous coffees
I you're giving ]>eople,” coffee
experts said, “but will women ap
preciate them?”
So we made a unique test. We gave
women a pound of our Central
American coffee to try. Told them
nothing about it. Simply asked
them to make coffee with it the
regular way and serve it at break
fast. Next morning to serve the
coffee they had been using before.
The third morning to use Folger's
again. Then let us know which
they liked best.
Their answers dumbfounded the
‘experts/ Proved women ablest
judges of coffee quality and taste.
Not only did they note at once the
richer, tangier flavor of Central
American coffees; but 8 in 10
also told us enthusiastically that
it made other coffees taste “flat”
and insipid by comparison.
Since that time we have built one of
the largest coffee businesses in the
world, simply by letting women taste
our coffee. We invite you to make
the same test. For we have implicit
faith in two thing? -your judgment
of coffee fill vor, and our coffee.
Coffees From The West
Coast of Central America
From certain tiny mountain dis
tricts along the West Coast of Cen
tral America we procure coffees
entirely different from any that has
ever come into your home before.
Less than one pound in 20 of the
world’s coffee comes from these re
mote plantations.That’s why they are
so seldom found inordinary brands/
If you have never tasted Folger’s,
your first cup will be a new experi
ence in coffee richness and flavor.’
Hand-Picked Central \iucrican Coffee
Grown in rich volcanic soil at altitudes from
it.500 to 5.500 feet, drenched by stenmii ;
tropic rains, and nurtured by brilliant moun
tain sunlight; Nature gives these cotie. s
twice the richness and flavor. That is why
Folger's tastes different from any coffee you
ever tried before.

Accept A Pound To Try
Just go to vour grocer and buy a
pound of Folger’s. Drink it tomor
row morning. Next morning serve
the coffee you have been using.
The third morning sene Folger’s
again. Then choose between them.
I f for any reason you decide against
Folger’s, your grocer will refund
your money. We’ll pay him. That’s
fair, isn’t it? „K
