High Chaparral Blend
Arbuckles’ Coffee began in the post Civil War Era of the 19th Century. Two brothers, John and Charles Arbuckle, initiated a new concept in the coffee industry; selling roasted coffee in one pound packages. Until that time, coffee was sold green and had to be roasted in a skillet over a fire or in a wood stove. You can imagine the inconsistency of the coffee. One burned bean ruined the whole batch. The Arbuckle Brothers were able to roast a coffee that was of consistently fine quality and the first to be packaged in one pound bags.
Needless to say, Arbuckles’ Coffee caught on like wild fire. It was soon shipped around the United States and became a favorite in the Old West. In fact, Arbuckles’ became so popular in the Old West that most cowboys didn’t even know that there was any other. Arbuckles’ Coffee was prominent in such infamous cow towns as Dodge City and Tombstone. To many of the older cowboys, Arbuckles’ is still known as the Original Cowboy Coffee.
When you purchase The High Chaparral Blend of Arbuckles’ coffee a portion of every sale goes to help fund all our HC activities. The Arbuckle folks are big supporters of The High Chaparral – Don Collier, HC’s ranch foreman Sam Butler is even the Arbuckle cowboy!
Included in the great western High Chaparral coffee blend is a random picture of the HC cast members from single portraits to group shots; Arbuckles’ has 10 high quality 4×6 inch photos. Be sure to collect them all.
