Lion Head Coffee takes home best espresso award

The coffee professionals at Granby-based Lion Head Coffee took home third place in last weekend’s America’s Best Espresso Competition in Denver.

Headed by roast-master Lucas Harville, the team from the small yet bold and determined Granby coffee shop, which also offers its products throughout the county and even overseas, were all smiles as they accepted a trophy proclaiming their third-place victory and $500 in winnings.

The America’s Best Espresso Competition is part of a larger competition to determine and acknowledge the three best coffee roasters in North America. Every other year, the top four from each of the previous six competitions come together for the Grand Championship where America’s Best Espresso National Champion will be crowned. All coffee roasters in the U.S. and Canada are eligible to apply to compete.
