This sucks. Crowfoot Coffee was a local coffee shop in my home town of Castle Rock, Colorado. It may have been the best coffee shop in America. The coffee was always fantastic (especially the espresso), the staff were always friendly, and any guest in there — stranger or not — was family.

I have had countlessly great times over countlessly great cups of coffee: long conversations with my dad; dates with my wife; Iced Americanos with friends… When I’m home visiting for a week I’ll be found at Crowfoot seven days in a row.

This coffee shop was the linchpin in getting the downtown development of Castle Rock onto its feet and into the beautiful, pedestrian-friendly environment it is today. Without Crowfoot, Castle Rock will never be the same.
