We were just passing thru Escalante and stopped for a coffee. We were long overdue for a good coffee . The second we opened the door the coffee smell was wonderful and we knew we found a great coffee place . We ordered our usual coffee drink / a latte & it was perfect , very good coffee and just the right balance coffee/foam . We even bought some beans to take home to LA . The owner was very friendly and we ended talking about his store and the great quality selection of outdoor gear he is selling and about his passion for coffee. He told us that he and his wife went to Italy to train as baristas . That training and coffee knowledge explained the quality of his latte . If you are in the area , do not think twice about trying his coffee.

Utah Canyon Outdoors gave us the highlight of our Southern Utah trip this November 2019. We explored the Grand Staircase-Escalante area in an area that isn't a "proper" trail - kind of a "free range" tour of areas known to the owner/tour guide. The area itself doesn't need a review, it's killer. Enjoyed it more than Bryce/Zion combined. UCO was terrific - the guide kept our 9-year-old engaged the whole time looking for Native American arrow head bits and stone tools, etc. Very professional in every respect, and extremely knowledgeable about the area, which greatly enhanced the experience. And as the title suggests...the coffee kicks as too. Just check when they close for the season. We stayed one day after they closed up shop and the coffee jones was pretty intense ;)

Unlike anything I have ever done. Highly recommend it. Guides were amazing and i would not want to do it without them. Also felt completely safe the whole time.
