Coffee is not only a great drink, it is a huge part of Americana. Sometimes we forget that it has been around as long as we have in America.
But Coffee has not always been in such favor as it is today. One of the great things about our series on vintage coffee ads is that it gives us a glimpse into what life in America was like when the ads were published.
Today we are so focused on getting the hottest new K Cups, but back in 1904 people wondered if coffee was a dangerous drug ruining the men in our society.
It sounds crazy but you’ll love the wording in this old Postum ad. And Yes, Postum was made by the C.W. Post cereal company.
