Mike & Francie Allen, Owners We—the Allen family—have lived in Buena Vista for 20 years. We love it here. The place, the people. Long have we nurtured the idea of opening a shop of some kind, and we’ve decided to move forward with our newest and favorite incarnation: a killer espresso and gelato place. We enjoy these good things, and we want to invite you to do so with us. Regarding the name, we are fascinated by the history of our town and surrounding regions. The Colorado Midland Railroad was a key player in the exploration and settlement of the area, so we salute that history in the name of our shop.
