311 Gram Tin of Roast and Ground Coffee. Flavoured Ground Coffee. Maxwell House coffee is good to the last drop. Available in one grind, for all coffee makers. Tin is recyclable where facilities exist. Maxwell House coffee was first served to the guests of the Maxwell House Hotel in 1892. The guests loved it so much that the hotel ran out after a few days and had to return to its usual brand. After patrons complained, Maxwell House became the only coffee served at the hotel. That's how we got our name, and our coffee has been good to the last drop ever since.
