Denver Day 2

Day 2 in Denver was so chill.. At this point, I already felt like a regular to the scene.

We decided to start out at Sweet Bloom and I was psyched to see the owner, Andy, again. It was a little drive away from Paul's place and has a good breakfast situation around it. As we walked into the sweet open ware house roastery; Andy was at the tail end of his roasting session. We asked him if we could, impromptu, shoot for Coffee Scene and he was totally down. We got some fantastic coffees from their tasting bar and were honored to ask Andy a few questions as he showed us how to roast during the day's last batch.

After that we headed to Black Black Coffee for some multi-roaster goodness. We figured the owner, Josh, would be running it and he is such a cool guy we had to fit him in. It was off the beatin path of RiNo and was pretty busy as we walked up, but Josh was still into strapping in and filming for Coffee Scene. We even ended up getting some of our favorite drinks here a V60 of Colombian, Caturra from Four Barrel and a macchiato made with Tanzanian espresso.

To close out the couple days in Denver we kicked it with Paul during his closing shift at the Gilpin Novo location. It was so much fun shooting for Coffee Scene in that space with him and Paul was so into it and getting super excited about it all. I love the vibe of that store because its this sleek coffee bar in the center of a beautiful neighborhood. The customers that come in all have a special connection with the place and servers.
