Bestslope Coffee featured on Daily Coffee News

Posted by on

Jen Zeuner and Anne Keller of Fruita, Colorado, are drawn to adding value to their local community through business. The pair previously opened Hot Tomato Café in 2005, a pizza restaurant in the area. Most recently, they opened a coffee shop and roastery, Bestslope Coffee Company. Before pursuing Bestslope, Keller roasted as a hobbyist at home on a small-capacity North roaster from Mill City Roasters. The two later brought in Brett Jones (who owned a larger roaster) and Tom Griffith to partner in starting the new business. Their roastery location also serves as a cafe, and they wholesale to local shops. Article is written by Howard Bryman, associate editor of Daily Coffee News.
