Notes In the 1850s, John & Charles Arbuckle started Arbuckle Brotheres Coffee in Pennsylvania. In 1871 they moved to New York. In 1912, the company launched the Yuban brand after John died. In 1921, they decided to take the brand national. In the late 1930s, General Foods purchased Yuban. Book: Uncommon Grounds by Mark Pendergrast
