Mom & Daughter Duo Take The Plunge

Mom & Daughter Duo Take The Plunge

River Blend Coffee House, Glenwood Springs, Colorado
by Ginny McKinney

image4Lisa Nieslanik and AJ Hasbrouck have always loved quaint little coffeehouses. This mom/daughter duo decided to take the plunge and open their own place when Lisa retired. While AJ always dreamed they would open on a beach somewhere, they both were thrilled when the opportunity for the perfect space presented itself at the perfect time.

Located off the lobby of the Hotel Denver, directly across the street from the Amtrak Station in Historic Downtown Glenwood Springs, CO, you would be hard pressed to find a more suitable place for River Blend Coffeehouse to open. On any given day of the week, this bustling little venue serves up locally roasted Bonfire Coffee and handcrafted pastries from a local baker.


The biggest reward this team has gained are the stories they hear from their customers about the history of this lovely mountain town. Lisa and AJ love sharing their town with the tourist who flock in to visit and grab a leisurely cuppa on the sidewalk cafe outside their door. Come sit awhile and gaze up at the Glenwood Adventure Park with their rides high above the canyon wall or listen for the whistle of the California Zephir as it pulls into the train station. You’ll find yourself coming back again and again.

Andy lives and breathes organics!   He bakes gluten-free delicacies in his on-site kitchen and roasts his single-origin beans with great dare.  His roaster is at a special location where he can

My sister and I shared his Green Chili Quiche with a GF crust to go along with our rich and delicious americanos.  Gotta tell you, that a week later, I STILL desire the taste of the quiche in my mouth … MmmmmMmm!

Toward the back of the space is a large community table with a LARGE coffee  mug, too.  Betcha I could drink that whole thing full of his Silver Sky Coffee!
