Good Coffee in Colorado Springs?

I'm in Colorado Springs this week, and I'm on the hunt for a good cup of coffee. I'm looking for a craft roaster who creates coffee with good flavours ( vs the burnt, bitter flavour that Starbucks loves to serve). I'd love a recommendation!

There are several mom & pop shops that buy their roasted beans locally. Are you looking for something cute, cozy or just there for the coffee. The local roasters are Colorado Coffee Merchants, High Rise Coffee Roasters, and Purple Mt. Coffee Company. Probably the most talked about coffee joint is Urban Steam on Sierra Madre. Others include Perk Downtown,Rico's, The Principle's Office, Cafe Corfo, and Cafe Velo. My 23 yr. old daughter loves Cafe 225 on Weber.

Report back when you've had a good caffeine buzz : )

I'm an admitted coffee snob on my way to Colorado Springs next month.

Looking for a well pulled espresso shot, not frou frou lattes or mochas, I'm after an Americano or Cortado that has a proper crema.

Does anyone know if any of the places listed by springschick above would have what I'm searching for?

I am not into espresso, but my husband is. His local place is Coffee Exchange on South Tejon. Personally,

I like Montague Coffee Shop on S.Tejon too.
