“Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

Lousy atmosphere. Lousy prices. Lousy lattes. Lousy baked goods. Lousy at filling custom roasting orders. The place is just meh. If you really need coffee it will do. But frankly the starbucks kiosk in the Safeway across the street will be just as expensive and a lot more satisfying... and I don't like Starbucks at all. I avoid it like the plague...

“Decent Coffee-- Warning - have to pay for internet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

I had a nice Vanilla Latte here, but had driven from Tabernash to work for a couple of hours. This is one of the few coffee shops in the USA that charges for the internet. I was pretty shocked. I would have gone somewhere else, but had already paid for my coffee.

“Delicious coffee, relaxing atmosphere, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

We are spending a while in Fraser and stopped by Rocky Mountain Roastery a few. The coffee was DELICIOUS. We even bought some beans and have been making the French Roast every morning at home and it's wonderful. They have a huge selection of house-roasted coffees from regions all over the world; I'm looking forward to sampling as many as possible during our stay here! They also have a large selection of loose leaf teas for ordering or purchasing.

The place is really cute, too, and has some goodies in addition to coffee including baked goods and some healthier (relatively speaking!) prepackaged goods like Tanka bars, too. The atmosphere is chill with a lot of seating and the staff was incredibly friendly and warm. A nice little spot in town for a cuppa joe or cuppa tea and a little treat.

“Espresso”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

This is one of many places in Winter Park, Fraser, and Grandby area that purport to make and sell espresso and charge New York prices , and yet who have no idea of what espresso is. There is no crema, espresso barely passes as 'strong coffee'. This applies also to the cafe in the Balcony, the midtown cafe in Grandby, and the Espresso Bar at SunSpot at the top of the Zepher Express. They did have a Starbuck's , but let's face it 'no one who knows espresso would ever drink their bitter swill'.

“Still the best beans!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

RMR is my favorite high country roaster. I always stop in for several pounds of beans and some fresh brewed coffee when I am in the Fraser Valley. The staff knows their stuff and the coffees I buy are always roasted to perfection. Wish I lived closer!
