Nominated for: BEST Coffee Shop
The Village Roaster was opened in March, 1979. At that time, it was the only store roasting specialty coffee in the Denver/Colorado area. The main product sold is freshly roasted whole bean coffee. A takeout beverage bar was added in 1990, which has quickly grown in popularity as coffee has become a more "social" activity. Other products offered include: loose and packaged teas, bulk spices, coffee and tea accessories, candy and many gift items. In June, 2000 a second location was opened in the Lakewood City Commons shopping center. The site is more of a cafe, serving fine pastries, specialty drinks and Afternoon Tea by reservation. Live music is featured on Friday evenings. The Village Roaster also operates a Coffee Cart in the Belmar Library, in Lakewood.
Locally owned, they roast their own coffee and they make some of the best Chai around. They also carry a wonderful selection of bulk spices and teas. Need a gift for that hard to buy for person? Chances are you can find something here they will like.
