But first, coffee.
For us, the most highly anticipated “meal” of the day is the beautifully rich, liquid darkness that is our cup of coffee. It kicks off our morning routine, gives us our second wind on a busy afternoon and rounds out the conclusion of a damn fine meal, especially paired with dessert. The things that a damn good cup of coffee can help us accomplish with enjoyment is nothing short of astounding. Colorado’s craft coffee scene is nationally acclaimed for its well-versed roasters, talented baristas and welcoming java shops that highlight the agricultural and culinary significance of coffee both locally, and globally.
“I judge a restaurant by the bread and by the coffee.”

Every good story begins around the table.
restaurateursHere at Rocky Mountain Food Report, we are committed to discovering and sharing information about the growing food culture here in Colorado, and beyond. We are eager to learn about the people, pastimes and processes that make the plates we can’t put down such an integral part of our daily lives. Food is the universal language of love and we live, breath, work and play for the passion that is the hospitality industry. We strive to parlay pertinent knowledge about brilliant brands, progressive restaurants and interesting events forward to you, our intentional readership taking it all the way back to the heart of food to discuss the agricultural and animal beginnings all the way forward to the professionals who prepare, brew, build and distill these delicious creations. We value the individuals who are creating worthy livelihoods from their passion projects and showcase the hard working chefs, bartenders, farmers, ranchers, brewers, distillers, restauteurs and sommeliers who make the arrival of these ingredients and life’s simple pleasures all possible. Food is art. Food is nourishment. Food is fun. Beyond our artistic appreciation for the beautiful presentations that have crossed our tablescapes and an unwavering admiration for the strenuous, challenging work of the entirety of the food & beverage community, we share the thread that we like to eat. No matter your age, sex, political affiliations, religion or socioeconomic status, every single one of us gets hungry. We come together to talk about cravings, the desire for a thoughtful craft community and what we should all eat next and that’s the joy of writing about gastronomic culture. At heart, this is a news forum that celebrates our hierarchy of needs where eating lives at the tippy top. Let’s learn together, taste all the things and enjoy every single bite.
