Hills Bros. Coffee, Inc.

Hills Bros. Coffee, Inc. traces its history to a small retail firm established in 1878. Its story as a major roaster and distributor of coffee begins after the San Francisco earthquake of 1906. Building on its early introduction of vacuum packing and controlled roasting, Hills Bros. quickly became a major West Coast brand and generally extended its marketing to the East.
