I visitd Maui in may 2004. before leaving I went to Hilo Hattie’s to assemble a gift package for my parents. one of the items was a small packet of the store’s “gourmet coffee.”
in nov 2013 I had to pack up the contents of my boyhood home at 429 Winckles St in Elyria. among the things I found was that little packet of coffee which my parents had never opend (they only fixd instant). I put it in my suitcase. on my first morning back in Santa Fe I brewd the coffee which I servd myself in Mom’s Morris the cat mug. when I was finishd I spread some of the grounds on 10 sheets of her stationery pad.
the next day I removd the coffee. strangely some of the stains are more vibrant than others.
