Rosco’s Coffee House is changing hands. Starting in January 2019, manager Annette Moon takes over as the sole owner of the near-Downtown coffee shop, taking over for current owner Tony White. Moon’s been in the coffee business for a total of nine years, and she says she was hired at Rosco’s as head barista before the spot opened. Over the last three and a half years, she’s worked her way up through the ranks.

“We knew that I was working my way towards this, because it’s a really good fit,” she says. “I care about this place a lot.”

She plans to make a few changes, already in the works. First, she’ll rebrand the spot, changing the logo to something she describes as more polished and professional. It’ll keep the same name, though, a memorial to White’s beloved donkey, Rosco. She’ll adjust the menu as well, moving to Springs-based Snowberry Bakehouse for pastries and the like. Moon says Snowberry’s gluten-free and vegan offerings will help Rosco’s better accommodate guests with dietary concerns. She’ll also be fortifying their lunch offerings, adding a house special panini she says will change either monthly or twice a month. And while she plans to reevaluate what they serve for breakfast, that’s further down the line.

Moon plans to hold a grand reopening for Rosco’s on Friday, Jan. 11, featuring live music by Had I Known, Vase Vide, and Tall City, with a recommended donation of $5 to $7 so she can pay the bands. She’s also hoping to get a keg donated so she can offer free beer for the event.
