Coffee Facts Friday

February 4 is Vacuum Day.  Many readers may think of the invention of vacuum cleaners, but get a grip on your grinder—after all this is Coffee Fact Friday.  Around our coffee pot, coffeesnobology celebrates vacuum-sealed bags on Vacuum Day.
Coffeesnobology, sifted through coffee-grounds research to discover this cherry.  In 1977 Henry Norman Saurage lll became president of Community Coffee Company, the largest family-owned brand in the United States.  Saurage knows his coffee beans and he began development of the first vacuum-sealed bag in North America.
