On our way back to Calgary we stopped in Drumheller at Black Mountain Roasters. It is located on Main Street in Downtown Drumheller. It is where there is a bunch of dinosaurs just roaming around causing scenes everywhere they go.
It is located upstairs in a building where they hav their roaster in the open so people can see it. There is a bunch of art shown on the walls and there is some seating that overlooks Main Street. I guess you want to see when the dinosaurs jump on your vehicle. They have some of their roasted coffee for sale and they all have dinosaur related names and the one they were using for their espresso is Albertosaurus, which we thought was clever.
After looking over their Cretaceous menu we decided on a couple beverages.
I ordered an Iced Latte made with Albertosaurus for $5.35. It was good with a very bold and strong taste to it. We later found out that the Albertosaurus is their darkest roast they have and I prefer a lighter roast for my espresso based drinks.
My wife ordered an Iced London Fog for $5.65 and it was good. Unfortunately she could taste that they used a Lavender sweetener, when we believed they would use a Vanilla. The Lavender is very overpowering and it was stronger than she liked.
My daughter ordered an Iced Mint Hot Chocolate for $5.65 and it was good. It had a good amount of mint, but she was said that it was just milk mixed with Monin Chocolate Syrup. She felt that it could have been done so much better.
In their display case they had a piece of Turtle Cheesecake for $6.25 and we decided to try it. It was really good and a perfect size for a snack. You could really taste the aspects of a turtle which is always a bonus.
The staff were friendly and very nice. They said we could enjoy our beverages inside if we wanted to, but we opted to be sit out on their patio so we could potentially scare the dinosaurs away if needed.
Tuesday to Friday – 8:00am to 5:00pm
Saturday – 9:00am to 3:00pm
Sunday – 10:00am to 3:00pm
There is parking located all along the street. As an added bonus it is all free parking.
If you want to try a delicious Cretaceous beverage, head to Drumheller and check this place out. Plus you never know where the dinosaurs are lurking, you might just see one from their window.
