Colectivo lands on Fodor's list of "15 of America's best indie coffee shops"

Milwaukee's blessed with several wonderful, independent coffee roasters and shops. Two, Colectivo and Stone Creek, have 20 years each in the Milwaukee area. Only one, though, Colectivo Coffee, made Fodor's list of "America's 15 Best Indie Coffee Shops."

Here's what Fodor's Travel had to say about Colectivo:

"From a single cafe in 1997 to a dozen throughout the Milwaukee area today, Colectivo Coffee's focus on locally produced products has fueled their success. They even employ a full-time coffee buyer to educate customers about where their coffee comes from. Each cafe rocks an industrial-chic, eco-friendly décor. The Lakefront cafe features original machinery inside a former city water-flushing station dating back to 1888."

The travel guide always provided an "insider's tip" saying to "visit the original location (Prospect Avenue), or the second-newest one in Milwaukee (Bay View) and try a coffee prepared at the pourover bar."

Chicago's Intelligentsia Coffee also made the list.
