We’re excited to announce our newest select employee group (SEG): Coal Creek Coffee Co. and Coal Creek TAP!
Blue first partnered with Coal Creek Coffee Co. and Coal Creek TAP in the summer of 2016, when we came together to host two successful pop-up events in Laramie. Both were great events with amazing turnouts, and this gave both Coal Creek and Blue the opportunity to show our appreciation for the Laramie community. This June, we look forward to partnering with them again for our first ever Bike Home from Work event in Laramie.
Located in the beautiful town of Laramie, Coal Creek Coffee Co. was established in 1993 as a traditional American coffeehouse. It was purchased by owners John and Jodi a couple years later; they took a dilapidated, old building in the heart of historic downtown Laramie and turned it in a beautiful space where college students, locals, and tourists visit for their daily cup of coffee. John and Jodi became members of the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) in 1997, proving their passion for coffee culture, fine foods, and overall quality. They later expanded with their second location in “uptown” Laramie, coincidentally right next to Blue’s Laramie branch in the UW Plaza!
Roasting began at Coal Creek Coffee Co. in 1998 when John and Jodi saw a regional need for a Front Range and Rocky Mountain based roaster. Their hard work and investment has paid off, as they have become Laramie’s premier coffee shop. The recent addition of Coal Creek TAP in 2014 has only enhanced the Laramie community; visitors regularly stop by to enjoy John’s custom beer creations and his friendly staff of “Beer Stewards”.
We have always considered Coal Creek a partner, and are happy to strengthen our existing relationship as they become our newest SEG. If you find yourself in Laramie, make sure to visit Coal Creek Coffee Co. and Coal Creek TAP to support this fantastic local business!
