meet OUR TEAM: 


Elissa & Justin 

Justin and Elissa both grew up in Colorado, and have been active in the Summit County community for several years. This couple shares decades of experience in both the corporate world and public service. As avid coffee and beer enthusiasts, Justin and Elissa agreed that there was an unfilled niche for handcrafted coffee and beer, and decided to create a beautiful mountain space in Keystone to cultivate and share these two delightful beverages with the community. As chief operator of Steep, most days you will find Justin behind the bar roasting craft batches of coffee. On days off, you will find these two fly-fishing on the river, Trekking into the backcountry, or shredding the powder! Cheers!!
