Inspiring the world through our craft, our care, and our conscience.

LostCoffee was established in Castle Rock, Colorado in 2010 by John Paulsen & Scott Gaerte. 

Brewtus was our first to introduce LostCoffee's locally roasted coffee to the masses in 2010. Just like the beverages on board he was transformed by hand into a bold and handsome representation of the brand to come. Scott & John spent over a year fueling the truck and fueling fans throughout Colorado.   


In the October of 2010 we signed our first lease at our former Limelight location. While construction on Limelight Ave. began the Perry Street store lease was signed in December of that same year.  As of July 2017 LostCoffee stores can be found in Castle Rock, Denver, and Aurora.

On February 10th 2011 the Paulsens and the Gaertes opened their first store at 390 Perry Street in Castle Rock.  The very address in which the families became friends many years before.

Today the company is powered by three stores and a roasting facility. Visit our location page for more info on where to enjoy our coffee in the Colorado Front Range.
