Owner description: From local residents to tourists, the Green Mountain Coffee® Cafe and Visitor welcomes all guests to the Historic Waterbury Train Station. After a complete refresh of the interior in the summer of 2016, the landmark uniquely celebrates Green Mountain Coffee and the great state of Vermont. Adorned with photography taken by employees during the company’s annual Employee Source Trips to coffee growing regions, visitors are invited to wander through the rich, 35-year history of Green Mountain Coffee®, take part in hands-on education about specialty coffee and the roasters’ award-winning coffees, and enjoy one of the staff’s coffee creations in the lounge, from artfully pulled espresso to decadent Pecan Pie Supreme. The Cafe is also the only retail store where visitors can find rare Green Mountain Coffee® blends like Tanzanian Gombe Reserve, and also mix-and-match their own variety packs from 48 different Green Mountain Coffee® K-Cup® pod varieties in the Keurig® Singles kiosk.

Four of us visited this attraction as all four are serious coffee drinkers. The exhibit is small but has good detail. The small cafe is excellent. Our visit was truly made special by Kristine, one of the employees. She not only explained different products well but took the time to chat, making us feel most welcome. The coffees here were fabulous and the treats were quite good too. We were so impressed that once the third couple arrived for our holidays, we all went back for another visit.

We called in at this attraction whilst in the area. Although there is not enough there to keep you occupied for long it was pleasant enough. A bit of a history of coffee making and of the Green Mountain brand. There were various coffee samples and on the day we visited they were also sampling some teas for consumer research. The decaff cappuccino in the café was fab.

Visitor centre doesn't take long to look around, but as it's free that's not really an issue. The coffee in the cafe is amazing- the best mocha I've ever had!

I'm not sure what this place is supposed to be other than a coffee bar and store. There wasn't much to see or learn about, but there was plenty of coffee and coffee makers to buy. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but this wasn't it.

Stopped in to pick up some GM coffee, one of our favorites. The selection and price were disappointing to say the least. You expect more when you visit the source. More kcups on the shelf than coffee, huh? No bulk beans, no coffee sample offered. Felt like we were at a Starbucks. If you want GM coffee just go to the grocery store.
