Discover A Rare Luxury-KEMOSABE LITE Iced Sugar Free Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 5/29/2016

I met Jake at the Spark’s Spanish Springs Library where last month’s Northern Nevada chapter of the Gold Association of America monthly meeting was held. I have been a member of the chapter for the past six years and a novice weekend prospector during which time I have discovered elbaite, amethyst, green uvarovite, black andradite, red-pink grossular and, of course, gold and silver. This weekend I invited Jake to go prospecting with me at Rye Patch State Recreation Area, just northeast of Lovelock to pan for gold.

After hiking three miles of fairly rigorous terrain we arrived at our claim site for the weekend.

“I’m glad you told me to bring plenty of water,” Jake stated as we rested on two large rocks, referring to the fact that the temperature had already reached 83 degrees and was forecasted to go to 98 degrees by late afternoon. “Here, Billy,” Jake said as he handed me a thermos cup full of what I thought was cold water, but was actually iced chocolate hazelnut flavored sugar free coffee.

“Wow! This coffee smells delicious,” I stated as I took the cup and held it up to my nose.

“Nice and cold,” Jake injected.

“Unbelievable, Jake!” I stated with enthusiasm after I had taken the first sip. “And you say its sugar free coffee?”

“It’s actually Kemosabe sugar free coffee. It contains less than one gram of sugar and comes in six delicious flavors-mocha, chocolate cinnamon, French vanilla, crème butterscotch, chocolate irish cream and, of course, the chocolate hazelnut. I drink it all the time.”

After I had taken several more sips of my coffee I looked to Jake and stated, “We haven’t even begun to pan yet and already I have discovered a rare luxury-this Kemosabe iced chocolate hazelnut sugar free coffee.”

Over the course of the weekend Jake and I panned a little over a third of an ounce of gold, worth about $415.00. Not bad for a weekend.
