Ryan Wanner's name should be somewhat familiar to you by now, as he's the roast master at Black Forest's R&R Coffee Café.
It's obvious that Wanner is really into coffee culture, but this post last week on R&R's blog makes it clear that he's also into coffee community — and helping grow ours.
"So why, in a pretty competitive landscape that is coffee, do I brag about two other coffee bars?" he writes ...
Simple. They/we are trying to do something Colorado Springs has not seen: move coffee beyond “just a cup.”
While I do believe that Colorado Springs is a long way away from a nationally advertised Coffee Crawl like Boulder had a few weeks ago, I see great potential in the small but growing coffee scene down here.
It's that potential that I too am excited about and have certainly noticed also with the recent additions to the scene.
Cheers to Wanner for his can-do attitude and sharing his opinion from the other side of the counter.
