Infused Coffee Lover + Denver
Coffee Coffee Coffee
With my love for coffee, lattes, tea, and anything in-between, I was inspired to curate a concept board based on the rich flavors of coffee and drinkable sweets. I have always loved a neutral palette, mixed with lush textures and modern shapes.
Mood: dreamy, dark moods, steamy, rich, earthy
Palette: various shades of neutral tones from deep, warm browns to creamy whites and from navy blues to details in gold. Also include various textures – hard, soft, matte, glossy, smooth, etc to give the neutrals depth and diverse shades of color.
On any given day
...you can find me propped up in a coffee shop here in Denver. Why you might ask? Well first, I'm a millennial and its a thing we do - so I've read. Plus, my addiction to coffee hasn’t had any adverse side effects yet and it helps me adjust to being a morning person when necessary. It's like a "happy morning award". Coffee? Yes, please! Mostly though, I try to keep work and home as separate as I can. Yes, I do a ton of work in my personal place of rest and relaxation, but when possible I love to sneak out and enjoy one of my favorite, computer friendly environments.
Taking this week’s COFFEE concept board as direction, here are a few finds that are coffee infused plus just a small list of my favorite places in Denver. I’ll be using a few of these ingredients for a cocktails down the road. Just search "coffee" and you are bound to find more delicious things!
Ninkasi Noir: Noir blends two signature brews of the Pacific Northwest: coffee and beer. This coffee milk stout combines roasted malts with smooth cold brewed coffee from Stumptown Coffee Roasters. A subtle sweetness from milk sugar (lactose) makes this beer reminiscent of the most satisfying cup of joe; distinctive and delectable.
Grind Espresso Shot: Medium-roasted Colombian Arabica beans carefully blended with smooth Caribbean Rum, for a finely balanced espresso spirit that can be mixed with almost anything.
Denver + Coffee
Novo Coffee, Caphill – @novocoffee
Coffee is commonplace, yet a truly great cup reveals a complex process. We roast coffees early in the week in our vintage Vittoria machines (fun fact: one of them is powered by a Ferrari motor).We deliver the coffees to some of Colorado’s finest independent restaurants, coffee shops, and natural grocers promptly after roasting. We believe coffee is more than a commodity, and we are always striving for constant improvement in search of a delicious cup. While we take coffee seriously, we firmly believe in not taking ourselves too seriously, as evidenced by impromptu ping pong tournaments, plasma cars, and a fridge full of local microbrews.
