The word Buckaroo is derived from the Spanish word “vaquero”meaning cowboy. A Buckaroo is a cowboy from the Great Basin county of northern Nevada, southern Idaho, northeast California, and southwestern Oregon. In the early 1800s, Spain and Mexico had tried to increase settlement in the sparsely populated grazing lands that are now the American Southwest. English speakers from the United States began to venture out into this Spanish-speaking region too, and in the late 1820s and early 1830s, the words buckaroo and vaquero start to appear in English.
When vaquero was borrowed into English in southwest and central Texas, it kept the original Spanish spelling. In California, however,the Spanish word vaquero was Anglicized to buckaroo. The Texas vaquero was typically a bachelor who hire don with different outfits, while the California buckaroo usually stayed on the same ranch where he was born or had grown up and raised his own family there.
Coffee was served as water with every single meal for American cowboys. There would always be a pot boiling on the fire, because that how they liked their coffee served — piping hot. Every supply of coffee was treated as bars of gold and it was cherished and praised by them.
Cowboys were undoubtedly the most devoted group of coffee drinkers in the West. As a rule, they liked it strong, scalding hot, and barefooted (black). They derided weak coffee as de-horned, belly-wash, or brown gargle. In many ranch kitchens, the cook did not remove the grounds from the pot after the coffee was brewed but added new grounds to the old until the pot was too full to hold more.
