Not only has Denver’s food scene grown dramatically over the years, its coffee scene has expanded, as well. There are quite a few independent coffee roasters that have put down roots in and around the Mile High City that are definitely worth sampling. Many of the coffee shops on our list proudly serve up local brews and they aren’t afraid to whip up some impressive latte art either. Check out our go-to list of the top ten coffee shops in Denver.
Amethyst Coffee Company
This one year old Golden Triangle spot is located in a renovated building that once housed a motel, called the Metlo. The airy and inspiring space, owned by Elle Taylor, offers coffee made with Commonwealth and Ritual Coffee beans.
Aviano Coffee
There is definitely a cult following at this Cherry Creek North coffee shop. This may be because they exclusively serve coffee brewed with Intelligentsia beans. The space is modern yet cozy, with a great patio out front.
Black Eye Coffee
Black Eye Coffee has truly made its mark on Denver’s coffee scene. There are two locations with equally different, yet appealing vibes. The first is in the LoHi neighborhood, and has remained a staple for its variety of brews, avocado toast, and fresh pastries. The newest location in Capitol Hill has a stunning interior with seating to accommodate their expanded food menu.
If you still haven’t been to the Source, an artisan food market that occupies a former 1880’s brick foundry building in Denver’s River North Art District, use Boxcar as your excuse. This coffee shop got its start in Boulder and offers outstanding house-roasted beans and highly skilled baristas.
Corvus Coffee
Local Denver roaster Corvus Coffee is a staple in the South Broadway neighborhood. They are housed in a large contemporary tasting space serving hand picked artisanal coffee suppliers from across the globe. Try their cold brew for your next caffeine fix.
Another inspiring space in the River North Art District is Crema Coffee. They alternate between a variety of brewed coffee beans from the best roasters around the country such as Dogwood, Handsome, and Sightglass.
Huckleberry Roasters
This thoughtful space in the Sunnyside neighborhood is a local roaster that offers a quiet and sweet getaway in a contemporary space. The baristas are consistent and the patio is excellent.
Overt is the sister spot to Washington Park’s favorite, Vert Kitchen. This quaint and modern coffee shop, which also has a garden, is perfect for a quick cup and one of Vert’s most popular dishes to-go.
Purple Door Coffee
Based in the Five Points neighborhood, Purple Door Coffee is a coffee shop with a cause. They employ teens and young adults who have been homeless and want to leave homelessness behind.
Stowaway takes their caffeine consumption seriously, roasting Corvus and Boxcar beans. They also have an inventive food menu including several breakfast dishes. They are housed in the River North Art District in an open and airy space with plenty of booths and tables to accommodate your needs.
