John Arbuckle in History of Drugs in America

John Arbuckle (1838-1912) was a Pittsburgh grocer who revolutionized the American coffee business with his Arbuckle's Ariosa Coffee brand in the years after the Civil War.

In 1865, Arbuckle launched Ariosa, the first popular brand of prepackaged coffee. Sold in standardized one-pound paper bags under a colorful logo, the coffee became wildly popular from urban cafes in the East to frontier chuck wagons in the West.
