Cowboy Coffee Shop

Whirring espresso machines, chatty baristas and hipster music in the background may be the sounds of most coffee shops today. But on traditional cattle outfits, you're more likely to hear clinking cast iron pots, jingling spurs and a flapping wagon fly. I took this photo several years ago during a branding on the Dixon Creek Division of the Four Sixes Ranch in Texas. I didn't dare ask if there was wi-fi, or if the cookie could swirl whipped cream on top of my beverage. But, believe it or not, I did notice a few similarities between this "cowboy coffee shop" and the java houses in the big city: strong coffee, mood lighting and plenty of desperate, decaffeinated expressions on those still waiting for their first cup.
