COFFEE.....ANYONE.....??

         Back in 1892 Kraft Foods manufactured Maxwell House Coffee.
 It's name was to honor the MAXWELL HOUSE
 in Nashville, Tennessee.
 For many years until the late 1980s  Maxwell House
 was the largest selling coffee in the U. S. ,
 then FOLGERS , manufactured by J. M. SMUCKERS came along.
         Today there are hundreds of various brands of coffee. Here are 10 of
  the most popular;  FOLGERS, MAXWELL HOUSE, STARBUCKS, FOLGERS
 COFFEE HOUSE [gourmet], MAXWELL HOUSE BLEND [gourmet], CHUCK-FULL
 -OF-NUTS, MILLSTONE, SEATTLE'S BEST, EIGHT O' CLOCK, and YUKON.
 FOLGERS being the most popular, down to YUKON the least.
         We have a choice of having flavored coffee and instant coffees are still popular too.
          There are over 64 types of coffee beverages. Following  is a short list of a few
 familiar ones[ at least to me]; ESPRESSO, CAPPACHINO, CAFE' MOCHA,
CAFE' LATTE,  PUMPKIN SPICE LATTE, and here are some I never heard of;
           RED EYE----dripped coffee, with a single shot of espresso
           GREEN EYE----[ ALSO KNOWN AS TRIPLE DEATH], dripped coffee
                                        with a triple shot of espresso
           ZEBRA MOCHA---[SOMETIMES KNOWN AS " BLACK TUX" OR
                                         'BLACK AND WHITE],  a mixture of regular Mocha
                                          and  White Chocolate Mocha
          We also have the option of having coffee with liqueur.Choices are many here too.
           I won't mention all, there  are 18-20 different ones, but here are some of the
   most common ones;  BRANDY COFFEE, IRISH COFFEE,ENGLISH COFFEE,
   JAMAICAN COFFEE, SHIN SHIN COFFEE, SEVILLE COFFEE.
         
          That is all for today friend, this is Jenny,
          with  A LITTLE THIS 'N THAT

  2. I read somewhere that Teddy Roosevelt was served Maxwell House coffee and he proclaimed that it was "Good to the last drop," which became the coffee's slogan.
