I have to say I have been drinking 8'oclock coffee from A&P for years and really love it. When I have company over, they always ask what kind of coffee it and that they love it.

ARen't you something? My mother loved that coffee too! Just gave me idea to go get some. Since that brand has been around so long, so many people must think the same way you do. Thank you so very much. Oh, I considered her opinion as tops. She could really cook too. All she did most of her life. Worked in home for wealthy people when she first moved to city from the farm.

Postum is not coffee. It's a coffee substitute, made from wheat, bran, molasses and corn syrup solids. I understand it was quite popular during World War II, when transportation of coffee beans was a bit difficult.

There are two types of coffee beans: Robusto and Arabica. The aribica beans are the good, expensive ones, which companies like Starbucks, Gevalia, and Peets roast to make their coffees, and charge you $10 to $14 a pound for. The robusto beans are much cheaper and they're used by Folgers, Maxwell House, Chase & Sanborn, Yuban, and Chock Full O' Nuts to make their coffees, and charge you 3 or 4 bucks a pound for.

I didn't even know there were still A&Ps around any more. I can remember going to the A&P with my father on Saturdays when I was but a mere child to do the grocery shopping, and the whole place always smelled from the coffee, which you bought in whole bean form and fed through the huge grinder right in the store.

After shooping we'd rush home to watch Red Ryder on television. You betchem, Red Ryder!
