Experience Kootenay Coffee Culture
Fortunately for coffee lovers, Kootenay communities are as passionate about their coffee as they are about their mountain activities. Coffee shops across the Kootenay Rockies are starting to reopen to the public with new physical distancing measures and safety protocols in place.
No trip to Nelson is complete without a visit to coffee roasters Oso Negro, considered a hub of creativity and connectivity in the community. Slow down to mountain time and watch the world go by in their charming garden patio. Grab a shot of caffeine and a baked treat for the road, plus a bag of their coveted beans for home. Alternatively, start off your morning with a Stumptown coffee and breakfast sandwich in the bright atrium patio of Empire Coffee, the perfect place to take in life’s simple pleasures.
