Colorado Springs’ newest coffee shop is open for business.
Co-owner Mike Hartkop told the Business Journal they’re doing brisk business already.
“People are finding it — we’re busy,” he said. “We’ll probably stay open until 2 or 3 today.”
Hartkop had had his eye on the historic storefront for more than a decade, seeing it as an ideal location for the company he co-founded with his brother David.
Billed as “inventors of the world’s only commercial solar-powered coffee roaster,” the Hartkops opened their first and second locations in Pueblo and — when the Starbucks closed — jumped at the chance to expand into Colorado Springs.
They’ve spent months renovating the space, designing a “calming escape from the hustle” that offers speedy service, a full coffee menu, fresh roasted coffee beans, burritos, bagels and salads.
Read all about the new location — and the Hartkop brothers’ adventures in solar coffee roasting — in the July 19 edition of the Business Journal.
