Stellar Coffee Company is an unexpected surprise in a small town like Roswell. Conveniently located on Main street in the Roswell historic district, Stellar is the perfect place to stop for an energizing drink before checking out the quirky UFO Museum. Great service, quality espresso drinks, and interesting decor make it the best choice in town for your morning beverage of choice.
The baristas at Stellar really know how to make the perfect espresso drink. The Americano was the best I've ever tasted: smooth, rich, just delicious. Stellar serves coffee from Eiland Coffee Roasters, a small family-owned roaster based in Richardson Texas. Coffee is roasted each week, and to provide maximum freshness, ground fresh before brewing.
In addition to espresso drinks, they offer the Japanese pour over brewing method, said to be one of the best brewing methods available. The resulting flavor is smoother and more flavorful. Hot chocolate, tea, Italian soda, and smoothies are also available.
The food choices are pretty limited, however, you come here for the excellent coffee, not to eat. Breakfast includes bagels, muffins, and croissants. A variety of pastries including cheesecakes and cupcakes are available too. Lunch includes salads, wraps, sandwiches, and soups.
For vegans and gluten-free diners, they carry a delicious line of dairy free/gluten-free treats from a local business. The dark chocolate truffles were so outstanding that I decided to purchase several extra for my road trip.
At Stellar, you can tell that the baristas have a lot of experience and really enjoy their job, which really makes all the difference. The drinks were simply amazing.
The design at Stellar is pretty eclectic with lots of interesting artwork and decor to browse at while sipping your coffee. From an electric fireplace to local art work, the overall vibe is interesting and eclectic. They also have a comfy couch to sit on for those looking to relax for a bit.
Be sure to stop by Stellar Coffee Company before or after exploring all the quirky UFO related attractions. It's the perfect place to enjoy a hot, perfectly brewed espresso drink in a relaxed, attractive setting. What a great way to start (and end) your trip to Roswell!
