Vintage Coffee Video: NoneSuch Coffee, 1934

Remember ladies, the way to a man's heart is thru the coffee pot!

Here's a vintage coffee advertisement from 1934 for NoneSuch Coffee, roasted using a new "secret process" and kept in the icebox! Pretty radical but it does seem to please Mr. Jones. The video is actually rather sweet and innocent, but is a reminder of how our consumerist culture got started and how far along it was already by the 1930's.
