    I found this very nice vintage coffee tin at an estate sale. The original litho label is mostly intact and the tin itself is in good condition.
    Since I got it home though, I can't find anything at all on the internet about this coffee company. Can anybody help me with info on this?

      it's from a New Orleans company called Oulliber Coffee Company, but can't find anything about the company and when they were in business.

      I know a lot about this coffee. the cans shown are too old for my knowledge. I was introduced to Grand Dame coffee in 1957 aboard the SS Lurline and Matsonia of Matson Lines that you see on the sides of containers on the freeways of America. I worked on those ships and that coffee was the best there is, better even than Startbucks or Peets of today. It might compare to Winchells that is now my favorite. Repeat passengers aboard those ships used to tell us that they booked a transit just so they could get our coffee and some even asked for empty cans which were then the usual big size of those days. The coffee came from New Orleans and had some chicory in it. Surely there must be a succeeding company that still produces it. Please refer me should you ever run across it.
