Up until the close of the Civil war, coffee was sold green. It had to be roasted on a wood stove or in a skillet over a campfire before it could be ground and brewed. One burned bean ruined all; there was no consistency.
In 1865 John Arbuckle and his brother Charles, partners in a Pittsburgh grocery business, changed all this by patenting a process for roasting and coating coffee beans with an egg and sugar glaze to seal in the flavor and aroma.
Marketed under the name ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE in patented, airtight, one pound packages, the new coffee was an instant success with chuck wagon cooks in the west faced with the task of keeping Cowboys supplied with plenty of hot coffee out on the range. ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE packages bore a yellow label with the name ARBUCKLES’ in large red letters across the front, beneath which flew a Flying Angel trademark over the words ARIOSA COFFEE in black letters. Shipped all over the country in sturdy wooden crates, one hundred packages to a crate, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE became so dominant in the west that many Cowboys were not aware there was any other brand.
Keen marketing minds, the Arbuckle Brothers printed signature coupons on the bags of coffee redeemable for all manner of notions including handkerchiefs, razors, scissors and wedding rings. To sweeten the deal, each package of ARBUCKLES’ contained a stick of peppermint candy. Due to the demands on chuck wagon cooks to keep ready supplies of hot ARBUCKLES’ on hand around the campfire, the peppermint stick became a means by which that steady coffee supply was ground. Upon hearing the cook’s call, “Who wants the candy?” some of the toughest Cowboys on the trail were known to vie for the opportunity of manning the coffee grinder in exchange for satisfying a sweet tooth.
Today thanks to the folks at ARBUCKLE, the Cowboys’ favorite, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE, is available once more. Complete with the original Flying Angel trade mark, these one pound packages of rich beans are every inch the full-bodied, aromatic coffee you get from ARBUCKLES’. There’s even a stick of peppermint inside each bag! No longer just a fond memory for a dwindling breed of old-time cowmen, ARBUCKLES’ ARIOSA COFFEE is back as good as ever.
Excellent coffee. Very good flavor and aroma
This may have moved up to my top three favorite flavors. It was late October just a bit after my birthday when we finished off an absolute favorite of ours butter pecan. We started this untested flavor Chocolate fudge. My cowboy husband rarely drinks alcohol but on this one peculiar night which was when this Montana sky was beaming brightly with a blanket of stars. Now he put a full day with the horses and one of our young ranch hands didn't show up for work. So my Husband has to take up the slack. No complains about it, just gets out there and gets the job done. Anyway after what seemed to be a bit longer day than normal, my husband says to me he's tired but not sleepy and in need of a fresh shower,he asked me to brew a fresh pot of the chocolate fudge while he was cleaning up, while showering he said to me to throw a splash of chocolate cordial and lets enjoy this beautiful night sky He started a fire and that old cowboy grabbed us a blanket and we sipped that full pot of coffee gone. Next morning fresh pot brewing of the same chocolate fudge. He says to me lets do that again real soon. What a nice memory for the bank, Arbuckles chocolate fudge, Montana night skies, or this ole cowboy of mine that says he ain't the romancing kind was well romantic.
This is really fudgeee! It taste just like a chocolate fudge brownie. I used mine to make chocolate fudge iced coffee. Why go out to buy an iced coffee when I can make a great iced coffee. I love it❤️
The enjoyment of the whiff of what is to come as cup comes to your mouth is only a small part of the total enjoyment of this flavor.
We originally bought this because we were going to Mexico and our host has a sign over his kitchen door which says," Fall in chocolate, not love," so we thought Chocolate Fudge coffee would be perfect for him. It was, we also took a bag of Mexicali, also a huge success. I am not a coffee drinker, but I drink Mexicali and Chocolate Fudge, con leche, hot in the winter and iced in the summer. And I am really cranky when I run out.
