Folger’s is one of America’s favorite coffee brands. In fact, founded in San Francisco since 1850, it’s been one of the best selling coffee brands for years.
Started by a 27-year-old entrepreneur, the company is now owned by Procter & Gamble Company in 1963. Procter & Gamble is one of the country’s largest manufacturer of household products, including cereals, coffees, and other foodstuffs. It was P&G’s influence that made Folger’s the best selling coffee in America.
In November 2008, The J.M. Smucker Company completed its merger with The Folger Coffee Company.
All of Folger’s coffee beans are mountain grown. They include regular roasts, special flavored coffees, gourmet coffee blends, decaffeinated coffees, cappuccinos, and more. In the regular coffee category, Folger’s flavors include:
- Classic Roast
- Simply Smooth

- And more
Specially flavored coffees manufactured by Folger’s include Chocolate Silk, Cinnamon Swirl, French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Caramel Drizzle, Coconut Cream Pie, Mocha Swirl, and more.
Folger’s makes ground coffee, instant coffee, K-cup coffee packs, filter packs, and single-serve coffee. From mild to dark, every blend of Folger’s coffee offers a robust taste that has become a favorite in America’s homes and businesses.
Since the advent of the Internet, Folger’s has entered the world of digital promotions with gusto. Their website features several mobile apps that you can download, a bright light for Folger’s fans. The newest app is the Wakin’ Up Alarm Clock App, which greets you in the morning with a good morning message or a piece of good news to start the day with. The Hello Sunshine App allows you to select a scene for custom interactive greetings that you can send to your friends.
Folger’s didn’t earn the right to be America’s coffee for nothing. It’s a true American gem with a fantastic history.
