Seattle Coffee History question (Corona Coffee)

I have before me a 3.5 lb glass container that has a label on it that says Corona Blend Coffee. It is a predominantly silver label with navy blue accents, and a "Juan Valdez"-like character next to a donkey. The lower part of the label has the words "imported-roasted and packed by Commercial Importing Co." with Seattle, Tacoma and Portland printed below it. It has a metal screw-on lid, plus a metal and wood handle affixed on each side. A pure guess, this appears to be something out of the 40's or 50's. I have googled everything that I can think of in trying to find out where this jar originated, without luck.

Anyone have any idea's?
