Weather & What to Pack

Weather in Fort Collins in the summer is around 80 degrees.  They say it is generally warm in the summer and sunny with afternoon showers that cool things off.  Expect 15 hours of daylight as well!  And mind the elevation.  Fort Collins is located at 5,000 feet above sea level.  They recommend you take it slow the first couple of days to avoid elevation sickness and heat exhaustion; this is  where you feel naseous or have a bad headache.  They recommend that you drink lots of water and always wear sunblock.  Layers are also recommended as the weather can change quickly.  Bring sunglasses, sun screen, lip balm, caps and a big water bottle.  Also pack a light rain jacket for unexpected showers.

Fort Collins is known for it’s expansive open nature spaces around town and it’s vibrant Old Town downtown plus it is the location of Colorado State University.  There is white water rafting, wildlife watching, hiking and trail running, fly fishing, rock climbing and all kinds of winter activites.  Fort Collins is an extremely bike friendly and dog friendly town as well.  Dowtown Fort Collins is filled with art, museums, live music and good food.  There are many craft breweries in the area, including Belgium Brewing Company.  There is a new Poudre River Water Park that is opening summer of 2019 where you can kyak, tube and splash in the river.  You can find all kinds of things to do at https://www.visitftcollins.com/.

Places to eat

Our hotel, The Elizabeth Hotel, has several places to eat.  The Emporium Kitchen and Wine Market has a variety of quality local foods and is open every day serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy hour and brunch.  The Sunset Lounge in their rooftop cocktail bar.  They have craft cocktails and wines by the glass with an open air view of downtown Fort Collins.  Lastly they have the Magic Rat Live Music bar and venue that hosts a variety of live musicians.  And since the hotel is located in the center of Old Town you should be able to walk to many other restaurants and there are food trucks all over town as well.  Both New Belgium Brewery and Odell Brewery are also within walking distance.  We’ll be having dinner Saturday night at Ginger & Baker and it looks delicious!

Mochas for Men Donation Day

Mochas for Men Donation Day will be held on Friday, November 16th this year.  This will be our 5th annual event.  $1 from every mocha purchased on this day will be donated to local men’s health care.

November is branded as “Movember” to spotlight men’s health issues.  These include both prostate and testicular cancer as well.  The Human Bean wants to support this movement in our local communities.  Therefore we host the annual Mochas for Men donation day.

The Human Bean has a large variety of Mocha drinks that can be made hot, iced, or blended too.  They can all be purchased on this day as part of the fundraiser.  In addition we have two monthly specials that are both Mochas.  The Gent is a praline and caramel mocha.  And The Lumberjack is a peanut butter mocha.

Come support local men’s health on Friday, November 16th!  Learn about other ways The Human Bean gives back HERE.
