Label states it was Good Housekeeping endorsed, “Tested and Approved by the Good Housekeeping Bureau of Foods, Sanitation and Health Serial no. 26 Copyright 1914.” In the 1900 it was a fledging coffee company and moved its operation to a facility in Minneapolis. They were transplants from Georgia and the label on their coffee cans featured the famous southern mansion in Georgia, Barrington Hall, where they grew up before moving north as adults.
