Red Buffalo Coffee & Tea is a community oriented coffee and tea house that seeks to provide exceptional service and quality products to Silverthorne's residents and visitors.
Founded in 2010 by Erin Young, Red Buffalo Cafe seeks to foster a sense of community and home. Often her family can be seen running around the cafe. Erin, family, and staff all believe in giving back and regularly volunteer with local, national, and global initiatives.
Carbon Offsets- We currently run all LED and Halogen bulbs from the bathrooms to the overhead lights. We also insulate our building and piping and thus use ZERO therms of gas to heat our unit.
Sourcing- Over 80% of our products come from an 80 mile radius. We also ask our suppliers that ship to us to ship using recyclable materials.
WE WILL ALSO BE LAUNCHING NEW GREEN INITIATIVES IN THE SUMMER OF 2019
Coffee shops help form a sense of community. Whether people come to chat with friends or conduct business with associates, coffee shops around the world are a gathering place for people. Because we consider Silverthorne such a good home, we continually do what we can to support our great community as they help support us. For example, in 2017 and 2018, Red Buffalo led the charge with the Silverthorne Chapter of the Summit Chamber of Commerce to eliminate school lunch debt for the Summit School District Elementary Schools.
Red Buffalo Cafe has also adopted it's neighboring segment of the Blue River Trail from 6th Ave to Rainbow Drive. You might occasionally see our staff members giving the path a good trash pick up.
