Plainsman was first offered by the Arbuckle Coffee in 1923. It's available once again and returns with a lighter roast than Ariosa.

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.
Sorry,, haven't tried it yet. Working my way through mocha java and loving it.
I really enjoyed the Plainsman and now I am in a quandary; I really like the Ariosa also; I may have to just order both next time. The Plainsman is milder than the Ariosa, I just really enjoy them both. Keep up the good work!!!!! :)
Good tasting coffee.
I purchase Plainsman coffee and Arbuckles Echinacea mint and one other tea that I haven't tried yet. The whole ordering experience was very easy. Product was delivered in great shape and on time. I'm usually not one to send reviews of products until I've used them for awhile. THe Echinacea tea in teriffic, My wife and I will be ordering this again. I'm the one who drinks coffee, today I made some in a French press and really liked it ie was very smooth and non of the bitter taste I've had with other coffees. I'll be ordering more and trying other blends of both the tea and coffee. You were a pleasure to deal with. Thanks for your efforts
