Hello El Paso! Looking for a coffee shop that will satisfy all of your vegan needs? Let me tell you about this little gem in downtown El Paso called Craft, a small, but lovely, completely vegan coffee shop. You can find them at 500 N Oregon Street on the second floor inside One : One.
Rosa Tenorio, one of the geniuses behind this amazing place, was tired of going around to the same places and supporting big chains around town that had options high in sugars and artificial flavors, so she decided to do something about it. She began discussing the idea about a local, healthy coffee place with her partner, and the concept for Craft began to form.
The idea is to have an eco-friendly shop, so Craft consists of two bikes with solar panels at the top. You can find one of then on Oregon Street Downtown, and the second one at Lululemon on Mondays. Having always been really interested in healthy organic and raw choices as well as super foods she began to experiment on her own and make her own creations. These creations are the ones that you can find at Craft today, and believe me you will not be disappointed.
Some one people's favorites include Pistachio Matcha, which she recommends iced, for which Rosa makes her own Pistachio milk. Another favorite is the pumpkin spice, not made out of any artificial flavorings, Rosa uses real pumpkins, spices, pecan milk, and maple as a sweetener. The drinks with Spirulina are also customer's favorites, and as you enjoy your drink you can enjoy the cool blue color it has! Craft also sells some baked goods, which are completely vegan, and they are just as delicious as their drinks.
We highly recommend taking a trip Downtown to the One : One office and getting your caffeine fix in this great local shop, you won't regret it!
