THE MOST DELICIOUS COFFEE ON SALE IS ALFORD'S LONDON PATENT CANISTER COFFEE, Got up in Elegant Tin Canisters of 2 oz., 4 oz., 8 oz., and 1 lb. each, Price 1s. 4d., 1s. 8d. and 2s. per lb.


From the careful manner this Coffee is prepared, being Steam Roasted and Ground, and a genuine article free from adulteration and spurious compounds; also put up in Tin Canisters, and not in Paper, in which the common Coffee, so widely sold, is packed, it commands a large sale. There can be no complaints of the Coffee contracting damp, as that in Paper, by which the aroma of the Coffee is destroyed, and rendered flavourless.

The Canister Coffee will keep fresh and sweet, retaining its original flavour for any length of time.--The great demand for, and increasing popularity of ALFORD'S LONDON CANISTER COFFEE, is the best guarantee for its excellence, there being treble the amount of this Coffee sold than any other in the Market. The cause is obvious--it has been tried, and proved to be a genuine article, containing nothing save a combination of Coffee of various fine flavours, prepared in price and quality to please the most humble and opulent housekeeper. The great public objection to the Paper Coffee is--even if, perchance, got fresh--if once broken, and not all used, what remains loses whatever flavor it may have.

This is obviated by the Canister, got up so low as 2 oz. each, in which the Coffee is always fresh and strong, never losing its natural richness, and from which the Coffee can be taken at pleasure, and the remainder secured in the Canister, so as to be always fresh. Respectable Families are requested to patronise

ALFORD'S CANISTER COFFEE; they are invited to try the fine Mountain Jamaica at 1/8, and the Rich Turkey Coffee at 2/0 ? lb., in elegant Canisters of 2 oz., 4 oz., 8 oz., and 1 lb. each. Sold by upwards of Eight Hundred Agents throughout England and Ireland.

Found inside a book of Latin verse 11 September 1849

Don't steal this book
For fear of shame
For on it is
The owners name
But if you do
The Lord will say
Where is the book
You stole away
And if you say
You do not know
He will send you
Down Below
