What More Can You Make with Coffee? 

More than just in your cup, Folgers Coffee makes a delicious ingredient in recipes, too. 

History

Roasting only the finest beans since 1850

James Folger himself developed a certain taste standard when it came to selecting coffee beans. To guarantee only the finest beans go into making Folgers Coffee, our master roasters follow the same "cup-tasting" tradition he started.
