Gold: Solar Roast
226 N. Main St., (719) 544-2008
Innovation meets hometown comfort at Solar Roast Coffee House in Pueblo’s Downtown. Solar Roast offers a quaint atmosphere, delicious bistro snacks and the best coffee in town. Home to the world’s only solar-powered coffee roaster, this shop is Pueblo’s favorite place to grab a cup of Joe, eat a snack and enjoy the great location. The idea of solar roasting began with brothers Dave and Mike Hartkop’s dream to use the sun as a way to roast coffee. Since 2004, the brothers have developed the only solar roaster in the world and are now gaining notoriety for their revolutionary coffee-roasting methods. Solar Roast coffee is now available in stores in over 20 states, but for locals, the shop is a place often patronized and much enjoyed.
