Re: “Canyon Coffee & Café

I had a very disappointing meal at Canyon Coffee and Cafe today. An omelette that was poorly prepared with veggies. The green pepper slices were as big as my thumb. The eggs were undercooked. The English muffin was tasteless. The butter was a bit rancid. I'll not be eating there again. Apparently the owner is trying to sell the restaurant. I wonder if he's already left....

Re: “Coffee and Tea Zone

Best bubble tea in town! Friendly service and it's great place to bring your laptop to get some homework done or sit around and talk with friends.

Re: “Nemo's Coffee

I worked next door to Nemo's and was in there all the time. They have great drinks, and are willing to make things that aren't on the menu. All of the food there is delicious! Breakfast burritos, muffins and scones (made fresh every morning), croissant sandwiches, and salads. A little pricey but definitely worth it. The owner, Tracy, always remembers me and asks how I am doing. She is wonderful! Some of her staff is a bit forgetful and don't seem like they want to be there, but if you catch Tracy everything will be amazing.

Re: “The Coffee Exchange

Absolutely the best place for spicy Organic Fair Trade Chai downtown. They are one of a handful of places in Colorado Springs serving Boulder's freshly made Bhakti Chai and they do it right. When Tony say it's guaranteed to put fire in your belly, believe him. Their Chai keeps me going all through the afternoon.

Re: “Canyon Coffee & Café

The folks at Canyon Coffee make you feel right at home from them moment you walk in the door. The espresso is excellent and the cinnamon rolls are to die for. Amanda made me feel like I was a regular customer. I wish I could make Canyon Coffee my regular joint, but I will stop in every time I’m in CO Springs.

Re: “Rico's Café and Wine Bar

When Poor Richard's is open you can get good food. Unfortunately then seem to have the same non-cleaning policy as Poor Richard's - tables are always dirty - hire some buspeople with disinfectant spray! The tables are pretty close together - go here if you REALLY like people.

Re: “Agia Sophia Coffee Shop & Bookstore

A quiet, gentle place overlooking Colorado Ave. with plenty of corners to disappear into with a book or your thoughts. Unassuming atmosphere, good selection of coffees and teas made a cup at a time.

Re: “Canyon Coffee & Café

Most of their food is pretty basic, sandwiches, bagels, pastry kind of stuff, but their Mate Latte (Yerba Mate green tea with steamed milk) is the absolute best I've found anywhere in town. The fact that they are right next to the Cheyenne Mtn. library, walking distance from my house and have a great patio, make them one of my favorite summer Saturday morning fixtures.

Re: “Rico's Café and Wine Bar

The make your own salad choices are superb. I"m not a big fan of the usual boring green stuff that's normally thrown on the table, so this offering makes my day.... try it with grilled chicken, chick peas, roasted almonds and peppers.... sesame seed dressing to top it off.....hmmmmmmm....I actually walk about a mile from my office to get this for lunch about once every other week.

Re: “Colorado Coffee Merchants

These folks really think their coffee is really something special. While in reality they produce below average air roasted beans at outrageous prices. They use an air roaster which they will tout as a superior method but for some reason most of the award winning micro roasters across the country shy away from this method which is basically a giant popcorn popper that quickly roasts the coffee as opposed to a slower more crafted process (I recommend doing your own research air vs drum roasting). Air roasting is in fact a less accurate (lazy man's method) to roasting. This largely due to the fact there is no way to sample the roast as it progresses and it basically takes most the human crafting element out of the process. The problem is at this altitude roasting conditions are quite variable depending on barometric pressure and humidity and to not being able to sample the beans as they roast (which air roasting does not allow, you just set the temp and forget it) creates an inconsistent product (although I'm sure they would say its more consistent b/c they roast it for the same time every time). In addition, these guys think $1 an ounce for coffee is a good price which is in all honesty highway robbery. The owner and his wife are very proud of their establishment but in fact know very little about coffee and have really not been in the industry that long. When asked simple questions about freshness and how to store coffee they provided incorrect answers. They promote storing coffee in a freezer which they sell in other shops. Freezing beans is one of the worst ways to store coffee which is now widely understood by most serious coffee drinkers ( freezing expands the few water molecules in the beans and generally affects the overall flavor). In addition, they claim to be Fair Trade certified but the website does not list them as members. Colorado Springs for whatever reason has a lot of local coffee roasters and these folks really do fall on the bottom of the totem pole. Just don't settle on these guys beans you can find a superior product for 30% less without looking very hard at all. Try looking at any of the roasters that have been here for 10 years + there's a reason they've lasted that long and it certainly has nothing to do with there not being a Colorado Coffee Merchants around before.

Re: “Agia Sophia Coffee Shop & Bookstore

This place is great at making coffee, food, and a place to contemplate, study, read, etc... Coming from the NW, a place know for many coffee shops, it makes me happy.

Re: “R&R Coffee Café

If you like gourmet food and excellent service, then don't pass up this little gem. They roast their own coffee and sell several fine blends by the pound.
Food is prepared by a chef/baker with a 5star resume. They serve breakfast and lunch Monday-Saturday, and unbelievable dinners on Friday evenings.
