A blurb from a poem called “Ways to Take Your Coffee” by Leath Tonino made me think of when Max Spooner, Patti Spooner’s son, went camping in the Eastern Sierras and, of course, brought some Alta Organic Coffee with him.

“With ancient mountains all around and an ancient mountain beneath you and the climb still burning your legs and clouds building on the horizon, a storm coming for sure, but you’ve got time, you and your best friend, plenty of time to fire up the stove and brew a strong pot and trade sips back and forth while two golden eagles circle, circle the summit, never once flapping their wings.”
