When the economy goes south it's a popular time for people to start their own businesses.

    In response to Frank, I'd have to disagree about the originality of the concept. Further, cheap and good were used to describe the new place's offerings. I've been there and I would have to say that cheap and cheap are more apt.

    He bought the business from someone who wanted to sell. Once you own something, you don't have an obligation to keep everything the same. That's not how it works. The previous owner wanted to sell, he didn't go in their with bags of money forcing her out, he's 26! We should be happy this young kid was able to continue to grow, build a following, and buy his own business in a time when so many places are closing down. He's trying to do something new in this town, heaven forbid change ever happen here. His cheap sandwiches and good coffee are a relief from so many of the over priced places on Main Street. If you all think the old place was so great, you should have gone more often and then the old owner wouldn't have had to sell it.

    It's too bad when someone takes a time-honored tradition such as the Colorado Java House, which has been here for at least a decade, and so easily dismisses it, throwing the name out with little respect for all those who grew up with it especially for a name as unoriginal and uninspiring as "Roasted." Do they even roast there? What a shame.

    It looks like this guy continues to "borrow" a lot from some of his competitors except for having poor coffee.
