Went to most of the coffee shops, and this was the best one we visited. Went back 3 times. Great coffee, coffee drinks. Also had very good breakfast, especially the burritos-and I'm a breakfast burrow snob!

We love this place! My family & I visit Pagosa Springs annually. We usually get iced coffee, have tried multiple breakfast options and Higher Grounds doesn't disappoint. Keep it up!

This is a cute coffee shop with excellent coffee and above average baked goods. The staff is friendly and engaging. They also have a nice selection of gifts.

I ordered a tasty soy latte and my boyfriend ordered a regular cappuccino and we both remarked on the great quality of the espresso used in the drinks. Atmosphere is clean and well decorated and gift section a plus.
