My family and I decided to hit the summit for the tail end of the meteor shower and the sun rise. On our way up we spotted Mike and the Crater Coffee crew (his dog). For me it was like finding water in the desert. Hot coffee, muffins, and even hot tea for my wife at 4 o'clock in the morning. What was most impressive for us was the endless knowledge Mike has about Maui. I have done several all day tours and did not learn half of what we did sitting in the dark on the side of the road at Crater Coffee. Even though Mike was just doing what he does, we felt that between the coffee, muffins, and history lesson he deserved a little extra so we padded his tip jar and headed on up to the cold crater with our warm beverages.
