Whatever happened to regular ole Cowboy Coffee? $.25 a cup, Hot, black, and strong enough to float a horse shoe in. Now we're talking about my taste in coffee. When ya wanna spice it up, put a little sugar in it. To make it really wild, put honey.

Yep Big Al, gone are the days of the $.25 cup 'o joe... but Chivalry still lives and thrives at The Celtic Cup Coffee House. Stop on in and let me know your from Barista Exchange and I'll set you up with hot cup (even if we haven't officially opened).

$.25...sounds like you're talking about a good ol' cup of commodity coffee. Without getting into the quality of that cup I think I can explain why those cups are fading fast. Simply put the prices now actually reflect the living cost of the cup. Even if you where to neglect the proper management of the land, the cost of fairly paying all the hands along the process of coffee from the seed to picking the cherries to making the cup and everything else along the way there is no way you could get a cup of coffee for $.25. Now factor in the cost of allowing the soil to actually live on all the farms and you can start to understand the current cost of the cup of coffee.

I'm from Texas originally and every once in a while I like to do Texas type things. Cowboy coffee the way i learned holds a lot of sentimental value. Blue speckled enamel pan, coarse ground coffee, water and patience. It's a lot like Turkish coffee and was all I drank my freshman year of college away from home in the dorms. Tasty and easy so long as you dont mind some grit. I usually save some and use it in my recipe for chili. yee-haw.
