"Ventero Open Press Fine Art is a non-profit located in San Luis, Colorado, the oldest town in Colorado. Ventero Open Press is a non-profit 501(c)(3)charitable organization emphasizing fine art; dedicated to giving back to the next generation by providing education, scholarships, art supplies and exhibition opportunities for both emerging and established artists. Within our facilities we have a gallery space that shows the work of both local and national artists, an espresso bar that serves Raven’s Brew Coffee®, and a print shop that has two Conrad presses. Ventero Open Press opened its doors two years ago and was founded by Randy Pijoan."

"We came across Raven’s Brew Coffee when we were in the process of starting the non-profit. One of the founding members Jan Gautreaux had been ordering Raven’s Brew and recommended it. Also the art of Ray Trolls caught our eye. We are always getting positive response about the coffee and Ray’s art work."

—Jeremy Elliott

Ventero mainly uses Ebony Pearl’s or Wicked Wolf as espresso.
