I ordered a tasty soy latte and my boyfriend ordered a regular cappuccino and we both remarked on the great quality of the espresso used in the drinks. Atmosphere is clean and well decorated and gift section a plus.

The baristas take pride in their work and even take the time to make designs on to go cups. The zucchini bread was super delicious

This place has coffee however you like it, but it also has foods that are delicious, and health conscious if that is your thing. There isn't much else to say about this coffee shop except you should try it at least once.

Cute coffee shop in uptown. Coffee has never been very good IMO, but they do offer some food that looks tasty.

As the town's longest running coffee house, Higher Grounds was established in 2004 with the goal of bringing the country's then-emerging craft coffee scene to the quaint mountain community of Pagosa Springs. Exclusively serving organic fair trade coffee, fresh in-house baked goods, and a curated selection of local beers & spirits, we continually strive to be THE destination for both locals and visitors.
