Life is an adventure....drink it up!

As the Valley switches gears (no pun intended) from skiing to biking our friends at Backcountry Coffee Roasters are fueling us with a new blend appropriately titled Spring Ride!
We were excited to see the new bag on the store shelf right next to the Buck Mountain Blend which also is named after one of our favorite mountain bike rides in the Methow.
Lori and Bob of Backcountry Coffee are big supporters of MVSTA and avid outdoor enthusiasts.
We hope everyone is finding opportunities this Spring to get out and ride, re-fuel and rejoice.
