Salida, Colorado: Salida Coffee Company drive thru
Salida, Colorado was founded in 1880 as a railroad town for the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad which ran coal and passenger trains on the highest rail line in the United States. Salida is Spanish for Exit, as it is the exit of the Arkansas Valley in the Rocky Mountains. The Arkansas River runs through the small town. Today tourism is Salida's biggest business offering skiing at Monarch ski area, whitewater rafting, kayaking, and outfitting.
While visiting Salida, Colleen and Mike discovered its only drive thru called Salida Coffee Company. She said their mochas were AMAZING! Here are their Happy Take-out Cups wearing Kup Kollars (cup sleeves) to keep their mochas hotter, longer and colder, longer! The barista put a coffee bean and a paper pine tree in the hole of Mike’s take-out cup to hold in the heat also.
Colleen, roving reporter for Koffee Kompanions, recommends you stop by Salida Coffee Company drive thru at 7595 U.S. HWY. 50 when you’re in Salida. Don’t forget your Kup Kollar!
