Prodigy Coffee*

If you haven’t picked up on it, I’m a massive proponent of local business.  Words can’t begin to describe how much I want to support the little guy.  I’ll stop with that, but expect an entire musings post on how I feel about local economies.

Prodigy’s mission of taking young people without access to traditional employment opportunities and giving them experience with customer service, sales, and coffee industry skills makes this place one of the shops most worthy of your business in my mind.  Prodigy goes beyond the level of community facilitator of the typical neighborhood coffee shop and has taken on the mantle of community creator which I believe to be the ultimate goal for any small business.  The open atmosphere with massive garage doors let’s the Colorado climate speak for itself while the staff all go above and beyond to make you feel welcome.  The coffee is pretty good too but in a rare occurrence, that’s an afterthought for me.

Coffee: 7/10

Atmosphere: 8/10

Staff: 9/10

Overall: 7.8/10
