8 Great Classic Coffee Commercials to Perk Up Your Day

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

What's good to the last drop? How about for your video lunch a look at coffee commercials over the years, from the flustered housewives of the 1960s who need Folgers' instant to perk up their domestic bliss, to Juan Valdez greeting you with his "Buenos dias!" from your cupboard. And, ladies, let's not forget that sexy French guessed it: "Jean Luc!"

See if you can spot some familiar faces while you hum along to some familiar jingles.

Happy National Coffee Day!
