CRAFTkitchen is all about community–the community of people we feed and the community of people who help us make that happen. So, as we get ready to open our doors, our main focus lies in building that community. We love visiting wineries and farmer’s markets, picking and choosing what people and ingredients we want behind the food we serve. One of our favorite recent field trips, in fact, was to our coffee roastery, Colorado River Coffee Roasters based in Boulder City.

Aside from smelling like absolute heaven, CRCR has a line of coffees that is 100% USDA organic–they’re actually the only coffee roastery in Southern Nevada with this certification. They also use specialty-grade green Arabica coffee beans as the basis for all of their coffees and never over-roast their beans (so their coffee never tastes bitter). While we wouldn’t really consider ourselves coffee snobs, we can definitely taste a difference with CRCR coffee, and we love the fact that they offer a line that’s certified organic.

We’re so excited that we’ll be serving CRCR’s organic coffee line at CRAFTkitchen. Local, fresh, sustainably-sourced ingredients are such an important part of our kitchen and the food we serve, and we’re thrilled to have CRCR along for the ride. We can not wait to open our doors and pour some delicious, locally-sourced, organic coffee for our community. And, if you want to get an idea of what you’ll be enjoying with CRCR coffee (hint: red velvet pancakes), check out our online menu–our website is now live.
