Java the Hut Coffee Shop and Outdoor Gear Store opened in 2003 as a
cozy coffee and tea shop that offers a wide variety of topographical maps, Colorado books & calendars and outdoor gear.
This is a very outdoor friendly small business! The owners, Brian and Vi, have hiked over
30 of Colorado's fourteeners (mountains with an elevation of 14,000+ above sea level) and it's not uncommon
to spot them discussing trailhead
locations, hiking logistics and other issues.
Plus, their coffee, gourmet drinks and array of snacks are pretty darn good too! Enjoy whatever you
buy in their newly redone building on Highway 24 (across from the Dinosaur Resource Center).
You'll enjoy their numerous selection of couches in an all-hardwood floor setting.
The folks at Java The Hut Cafe haven't paid a cent for this little
commercial. Simply put, this webmaster frequents the place often and
believes in supporting locally-owned businesses.
Below are a few more shots of the cafe.
