ETS in Denver, Colorado is right around the corner. I’m excited for many reasons but coffee is definitely near the top of the list. Here are some recommended coffee shops so you don’t have to lower your standards for Starbucks, Panera, Peet’s, or any other subpar coffee experiences.
Sweet Bloom: at the top of the list is Sweet Bloom roasters. I’ve had their coffee several times and it is always top notch. If you’re looking for the best cup in Denver then look no further. When you go in there is a small seating area and if you’re lucky enough you can watch them roast their coffee. The Breve Cortado was fantastic this morning. Sweet Bloom is a 25 minute drive or a two-hour trek from the conference center (https://sweetbloomcoffee.com/).

Amethyst: another favorite in Denver is Amethyst coffee. I love the aesthetics of this shop and they have quality coffee. They also have a good seating area as well. Amethyst is about a 15 minute walk from the conference center (https://www.amethystcoffee.co/).

Commonwealth: Last time I was in Denver they had already closed by the time I was able to make it but they kindly let me in anyways. This features an industrial space with many good coffee options. It’s about a 25 minute drive from the conference center (https://commonwealthcoffee.co/).

Black Eye Coffee: Last time I was in Denver these guys had some of the best espresso that I’ve had. If you get a chance you should check them out. It’s about 3 miles from the conference center (https://www.drinkblackeye.com)

Other Recommendations (close to the conference center)
Little Owl: One location that was recommended to me that I haven’t checked out is Little Owl coffee. I’ll be headed there sometime on this trip. Lille Owl is located about a mile away from the conference center (https://www.littleowlcoffee.com/).
