About Cowboy Coffee

Because this was told to me by another chuck wagon cook it must be true.

Before a cowboy drinks his coffee he fans it for three days with his hat. Then he pours it into the Rio Grande thirty miles south of Taos, New Mexico. He saddles his pinto pony and rides seven days and seven nights until he meets the Rio two hundred miles nearer the Mexican border. 

Then he dips his tin cup in the Rio Grande and gets his cowboy coffee back. Even then he has to dilute it with cyanide.

Some day I will tell you more about cowboy coffee.
