Boozy Coffee for the Holidays

It seems that for many of us, the holidays just go better with alcohol. Whether you’ll be celebrating with loved ones, stressing out over the end of year frenzy, or relaxing on your own, it’s likely that you’ll be drinking this holiday season. This Winter, try adding a little kick of coffee to your seasonal booziness! These two locally brewed coffee-alcohol infusions are sure to be good companions for your holiday fun or blues:       Hiatus Novo cold-brewed coffee is combined with oatmeal ale to create Hiatus—a malty beer from Denver’s own Renegade Brewing Company.

The Source: Boxcar Coffee + Holiday Market

December 16th, 2014

While there are many places to do your holiday shopping in Boulder, there’s a fantastic place in Denver that’s worth checking out too: The Source. Located in the developing RiNo neighborhood, The Source is a unique market housed inside a former brick foundry building from the 1880s. Opened just last year, it’s a thriving collective of food and design retailers offering a distinctively local dining and shopping experience seven days a week. This weekend you can attend The Source’s indoor Holiday Market to do your last minute shopping. There will be various local vendors,... Read More

Give the Gift of Coffee

December 9th, 2014

Last week’s coffee-centered gift guide will hopefully come in handy while you do your holiday shopping. But if you’re looking for more affordable gifts, I recommend buying something that every coffee lover really wants: coffee beans! A bag of beans from a third wave or local roaster is an excellent and relatively inexpensive gift—it makes for a great stocking stuffer too. Give the gift of delicious coffee this Winter and support roasters who strive to do right by their coffee farmers/suppliers. Here’s my list of this season’s best coffee to gift:   Boxcar Coffee – the Kenya Gatomboya... Read More

Unconventional Coffee: It’s Worth the Wait

November 18th, 2014

Last week I mentioned how fun it can be to make your own coffee at home. The manual and experimental process involved with using tools like pour-over devices is what allows the final product to be so special. Manual devices allow you to control all the different aspects involved in brewing coffee—from temperature to portion and, most importantly, timing—in a way that automatic machines can’t. The level of control and precision you get with pour-overs or immersion brews let you not only make the exact type of coffee you like but also allows you to fully taste the nuisances of single origin... Read More

Autumnal Coffee Pleasures

October 21st, 2014

In Boulder, foliage is changing along with people’s outfits and appetites. Fall alters eating habits and restaurant menus along with the colors and temperatures of the city. Hearty foods made from autumnal produce like butternut squash and sweet potatoes, along with sweet treats like pumpkin pie and hot apple cider, are the order of the season.     Coffee tastes also shift with the seasons. Many coffee drinkers begin to crave toasty or velvety seasonal-flavored beverages as Fall progresses in to Winter. Autumn is when the pumpkin spice latte is king, or at least that’s how many major... Read More

The Business of Third Wave Coffee

September 29th, 2014

The phrase “third wave coffee” sounds inflated but it’s a term that best sums up the current trend that many coffee companies are invested in. Many independent coffee shops care about the nuanced flavors of different regional or varietal beans so they buy beans, or roast their own, from domestic companies which use roasting methods that bring out the distinct flavors of each kind of bean. Most of these companies also care about the ethical and environmental impact their industry has on the globe so they make efforts to do direct or fair trade with organic coffee farmers around the world.... Read More
