One of Mountain Dweller Coffee Roasters’ recent projects includes teaming up with New Image Brewing in Arvada and Waves for Water to promote global water conservation.

“We collaborated with New Image to craft a coffee blonde ale, brewed using a process that uses little or no water from the Dumerso washing station, a family-owned and -operated production near Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. The delicate floral and sweet plum notes of the coffee pair well with the ale, without overpowering the beer. We named this coffee Making Waves to signify the continuing effect of the coffee seed’s journey. Part of the proceeds from the beer and coffee sales will be donated to Waves for Water.” —Beth Johnson, Mountain Dweller Coffee Roasters, Frisco
