Can't get started without your morning caffeine buzz? The organizers of the Grand Coffee Bazaar get it. The third annual celebration of the bean brought all manner of coffee drinks and products to RedLine Gallery on Saturday, October 15, keeping attendees jittery with the joy of java. More than a dozen roasters brought their best beans, and five Denver breweries took the edge off with coffee-infused beers. Photographer Danielle Lirette captured every pour-over and perk of the event. See our Grand Coffee Bazaar 2016 slideshow for more photos.
