Additional Information

Schillings Best Coffee—"Schilling's Best are as good as they can be --not prudish or foolishly or extravagantly perfect." –was a product of A. Schilling & Company, marketer of coffee, tea, baking powders, extracts and spices. The San Francisco company was established by two German natives, August Schilling and George F. Volkmann in 1881, who broke from J.A. Folger & Co. to start their own venture. Advertising was a major aspect of the brand from the start and they encouraged shops carrying their products to do the same. Ultimately, Schilling merged with McCormick & Company in 1946 and the brand continued until 2002.
