Curbed Ski rounded up some of the best ski-town coffee shops in Colorado so you can fuel up before you hit the slopes. Whether its a blue-sky groomer day or a cold and deep no-friends-on-a-powder day, a warm cup of joe starts everything off right. From Crested Butte to Breckenridge, these are just a sampling of places we love. But this list is just a starting point, so tell us: where do you love to get that caffeine fix in the high country?

Kava Cafe

Kava Cafe is known for their made to order miniature donuts, good coffee, and kava, a cold specialty drink that combines kava root, coconut milk, and fresh ginger. Located downtown not far from the gondola, grab your coffee to go and snack on the piping hot donuts on your way up the mountain. Photo from Uncover Colorado

Yeti's Grind

Avoid the Starbucks in Vail and instead head to Yeti's Grind, a place that does everything from black coffee to elaborate seasonal lattes. The latte art can be beautiful and its a comfortable spot if you are taking a break from the slope. Photo from Yeti's Grind

The Blend

Join the Colorado locals at this relatively new coffee hot spot. Comfortable and lacking the pretension that permeates many ski town coffee joints, the Blend has organic Novo coffee, great pour overs, and great breakfast options. Photo from The Blend Coffee Company

Rumors Coffee and Tea House

Most tourists in town head to the famous Camp 4 Coffee shop, but Curbed Ski prefers Rumors Coffee and Tea House for its relaxed atmosphere and tasty brew. There's also an excellent bookstore next door and plenty of comfortable seating to enjoy your chai tea or espresso.
