Branding Iron's Espresso

Named after the thrilling White Spider climb at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, our White Spider blend is an adrenaline rush in a cup. Roasted in the high elevations of Jackson Hole, this medium espresso blend embodies the climb's boldness. It offers vibrant flavors of salted caramel, brownie, and sweet cream, perfect for espresso, drip, or French press. Embark on your daily adventure with each energizing sip.

The Heart of Branding Iron

After overcoming the challenges of the Roosevelt Fire and the COVID-19 pandemic, owners Matt and Jennifer Accurso have infused Branding Iron with more than just good food and coffee. They've created a sanctuary for both locals and travelers, a place where each cup of coffee and handmade empanada is a reflection of their journey and resilience.

The Coffee Connection

The Accurso's choice to partner with us is more than a business decision; it's a shared commitment to quality and community. We are renowned for our rich flavors and that complements Branding Iron's menu perfectly.

A Taste of Adventure

Whether it's a robust espresso to kick start your day or a comforting latte to unwind, Branding Iron offers a range of coffee beverages. Pair these with their signature empanadas – a variety of flavors wrapped in flaky pastry – and you have a meal that's both satisfying and soulful.

They offer an eclectic mix of flavors, ranging from the classic to the creative, including crowd-pleasers like the rich banana Nutella, traditional apple pie, hearty biscuit and gravy, and a zesty pepperoni pizza option.

The Branding Iron Experience

It's more than a café; it's a place where you can hang up your spurs and stay awhile.

From the warm interior adorned with University of Wyoming colors to the sunny porch, every corner of this cafe invites you to relax and savor the moment. It's a hub for the community, a place where stories are shared, and new ones begin.

Beyond the Beans

Here, you'll find the essence of what makes local businesses so special. It's a story of overcoming adversity, celebrating community, and delivering excellence.

In partnership with Snake River Roasting Co., Branding Iron stands as a beacon of local spirit and culinary delight.
