Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 5, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE LETHBRlDTiE DAIT.T HERALD FRIDAY, OCTOHUH v What is Crushed Coffee? Briefly, Crushed Coffee is coffee that has had the beans crushed between steel rollers with just enough pressure exerted to break the beans into clean, even grains from which the bitter chair and dust are easily separated by air Resulting in a coffee so pure that no egg is needed to settle it. Red Rose Coffee is as easy to make as Red Rose Tea, and its flavor, aroma and smoothness are a delight as com- pared with the ordinary ground coffees. Sold only in double-sealed air-tight cans to keep it good. The same price as it iras three years ago. 6" Red Rose (FtP--n Oir Own Cor res per i ecU- Raroas. Ocl.
