Maker Chase & Sanborn

Maker Details Chase & Sanborn Coffee is an American coffee brand created by the coffee roasting and tea and coffee importing company of the same name, established in 1862 in Boston, Massachusetts. It claims to be the first coffee company to pack and ship roasted coffee in sealed tins. When Standard Brands was formed in 1929, it acquired Chase & Sanborn, where it remained until 1981 when the company merged into Nabisco.
