I'm talking about Cowboy Coffee over at Inkwell Inspirations today. Can you imagine how long it took to make a cup of coffee 150 yrs ago? We think we're in a modern, civilized age because we can grind our own beans for freshness. Back in wagon train and frontier times, they had no choice. Everyone carried their own grinder around with them because until 1865 you couldn't buy ground coffee. And if you could, it was probably rancid.
I have this video over at the Inkwell but like it so much I'll add it here. It's from the Arbuckle Coffee website and explains what happens to all those missing socks...
I wonder if that's where they got the idea for the Mr. Bean segment? LOL
If you'd like to read more, head on over the the the Inkwell and answer this question:
Do you like to drink belly-wash or six shooter coffee? Or would you rather have tea?
