    It depends who makes it. The wife makes auto drip and adds French vanilla creamer. I make cowboy coffee in an old fashioned basketless campfire coffee pot. You boil water, add grounds and stir. Let it boil for a few minutes then remove from the fire to settle. I wrap it with a towel to keep it hot. After a few minutes when the water settles I add a few cleaned egg shells and a splash of cold water. This drives the grounds to the bottom. You can strain it when you pour or not depending on how cowboy you are. 😛
    As far as the coffee type, the wife uses French roast dark. I like Arbuckles coffee. (Traditional cowboy coffee was made this way)

    I sometimes carry a jar of peanut butter with me in diners and put it on over pizza four cheeses for example or over lasagne.

    Not even strained through your cowboy bandana?

    Maybe you could try English Breakfast tea, it seems a little stronger than some.

    But if you really make coffee as you say, then I imagine no tea could be strong enough for you. I'm a little more cultured, I use a Keurig coffeemaker. 😀

    I have no fight left Suzzianne, take it, take it all. . . I need comfort and bandages, a pair of grey slippers and a pipe, nothing left, just existence.

    I ran out of coffee today. I forgot to write it on the grocery list. I was wanting a hot beverage, so I dug out some good old tea. What is this crap? It reminds me of rusty water. 😕 Sorry but as an American cowboy I need a cup of mud. I can see now why we dumped this crap in the ocean and kicked England's ass.

    I am broken my Celtic cousin, there is nothing left but emptiness, a vast tundra region stretching forth into eternity upon which hollow words reverberate and dissipate into the vastness of the void.

    Whisky is pleasure spiked with pain, one needs friends and an open fire and legs aching from hill walking in some little village inn to appreciate its mercies. No mercy here.

    Well, you know, it is not complicated to make. Get your hot tea, and then add ice till it quits melting. I do this at places like IHOP where the iced tea is clearly some sort of instant crap.
