PHONE 1224 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 chaff and dust are easily separated by air suction- Resulting in a coffee so pure that no egg is needed to settle it. Red Rose Coffee is as easy lo make as Red Rose Tea, and its flavor, aroma and smoothness are a delight as com- pared with the ordinary ground coffees.
