GRANBY — A popular Granby main street coffee shop, known for its drive-through window, is under new ownership with a new name.

Jill Miles, who started Grand River Coffee at the corner of First Street and Agate Avenue in 1996, has sold her business to Lucas Harville. Under Harville the name has changed to Lion Head Coffee.

“Lion Head Coffee is a specialty coffee shop dedicated to quality, sustainability and consistency,” Harville said. “We will be opening in early November.”

Lion Head Coffee will continue to operate the popular drive through window while adding products and services.

“We will offer a focused smaller menu than most shops and just concentrate on making it really taste good,” Harville said. “In addition to coffee and tea served hot and cold we will serve breakfast burritos, pastries, and come next summer we will add ice cream to the menu.”

Harville calls himself a “certified coffee geek,” adding that “we will use science to brew a consistently delicious cup of coffee.”

Harville has helped out at Grand County coffee shops recently and has worked in the equipment supply and wholesale side of the business as well.

“I have worked with coffee in one form or another for the last five years,” he said. “That includes some consulting work in the area, working behind the coffee bars, and also working for a wholesale supply company.”

To start with, Harville said he plans to use coffee roasted in Lakewood from “our friends at Sweet Bloom Coffee Roasters.”

As well, he plans to greatly improve the outdoor seating at his coffee shop by partnering with his neighbors at Grand County Landscaping.

“I will be offering great coffee at good prices at Granby’s most prominent intersection, for drive-up customers and walk-ins,” he said. “I’m looking forward to being in the coffee business in Granby, Colorado.”

The hours at Lion Head Coffee will be 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday with expanded hours during the summer.

Lion Head Coffee worked with Patrick Brower, Enterprise Facilitator with the Grand Enterprise Initiative in the course of opening his new shop.
