Owners Scott and Julie Gondzar are members of the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) and work diligently to maintain high standards, selecting only specialty coffee beans from sustainable farms and achieving excellence in the craft roasting process.

Snowy Elk Coffee was established in 2017 in Cheyenne, Wyoming, at an elevation of 6,100 feet above sea level. The roastery was constructed out of a desire to produce exceptional coffee based on a philosophy that promotes a life of exploration, balance, and preservation. Julie explains, “We view Snowy Elk as more than just a coffee company.” “Our coffee and brand represent encouragement and inspiration to connect with nature, explore the great outdoors, and seek out new adventures that push you further. That is the goal of each of our coffee roasts.”
