Original Roast is Maxwell House's® signature medium roast coffee, made with a blend of Arabica and Robusta coffee beans.
Original Roast was first served to the guests of Nashville's 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's became the only coffee served at the hotel. That's how Maxwell House® got its name, and their coffee has been good to the last drop ever since.
