Green Mountain Coffee Café & Visitor Center

Located in Waterbury’s historic train station

One step inside the historic Waterbury train station transports you to another world. A jewel of the Italianate Victorian style, the station has been lovingly restored to its 1875 glory. It still serves the Amtrak commuter train that runs from St. Albans, Vermont to Washington, D.C. This is one stop on the line you won’t want to miss!

This is the home of the Green Mountain Coffee Visitor Center, our interactive, “hands-on” exhibit and multimedia coffee experience.

Learn how coffee is grown, harvested, processed, and roasted
Sample coffees from around the world
Experience the “taste of place” that makes each coffee unique
Discover unique gifts and artisanal crafts from coffee-growing communities

After your self-guided tour, relax in the Green Mountain Coffee Café and enjoy a cappuccino, latte, espresso or other coffee creation, custom-made for you.

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters offers more than 100 delicious coffee selections, including single-origin, estate, certified organic, Fair Trade Certified™, and flavored coffees. Take a bag, box of K-cup® packs or box of Vue® packs home with you when you go. (Or shop online at www.GreenMountainCoffee.com).
