THE BUZZ: AN UNIQUE COFFEE EXPERIENCE
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS Longtime Steamboat Springs resident Kimberly Bates has opened her first business, "The Buzz," a coffee kiosk in the Fifth Street Marketplace in downtown Steamboat. The Buzz occupies the space that was formerly the Sunglass Hut.
Bates says she's concentrating on fine coffee from Steamboat Coffee Roasters and making espressos and lattes the right way. For example, all of her baristas use thermometers to ensure the steamed milk in a latte is at the proper temperature.
"We want the consistency," Bates said. "I want it to taste the same no matter who is making it. When Europeans come in and order straight shots of espresso, and they come back for more, you know you're doing it right."
The Buzz offers easy on-street parking at the corner of Fifth and Lincoln and is open 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.
