Topic: Coffee in Denver (6 msgs / 146 lines)
1) From: Coffee
I'll be spending a week in Denver. I'm brining an immersion heater  
with a whirly-blade grinder and a #1 cone filter holder. I tried this  
apparatus this morning and besides taking about 10 minutes to heat the  
water it's made a pretty good cup.
While I'm there, are there any "Don't miss" coffee shops? (or anything  
else I shouldn't miss?)
Thanks,
-Peter

If you can, check out novo roaster's cafe, they have a cafe in the new
art museum.  also common grounds is good.  i don't know the address
off the top of my head, but let me know if you can't find it.
If you get to boulder send me an email and i'll make you a cup of
something good at home.  cafe wise, the cup on pearl street serves
conscious coffee single varieties and 49th parallell guest espresso.
be certain to take some conscious coffee and novo beans home.  Mark
from conscious coffees does a public cupping at the cup on the last
sat of the month and every other friday at the boulder whole foods.
hope that's helpful!!

I went to Kaladi coffee down in southern Denver near the university. But
that's because I have Kaladi coffee root back in Anchorage, AK, and the
owner of the Denver shop was one of the founders of the AK group who sold
out.
It was good.
But in the downtown area, I only found Peet's worthy of a visit.
YMMV, my visit was last summer.

"...or anything else I shouldn't miss?"
Peets do it right, or photograph The Buckhorn Exchange for evidence that you
were there, as you pass on their exotic menu.
My busted Carpeso Leaks expresso maker cranks out better shots from
homeroast than I can get on a candid stop at any coffee shop. Remember when
*$ actually said they considered McDreck to be competition?
"As good as McDonald's coffee" is a serious symptom, not a recommendation,
and it's contagious.
Remember, your heater can be made in China, Leichtenstein or with Swedish
stainless steel- water still boils at 201 F here. It can't exist at 212=
 in
the open, maybe in a pressurized vessel it could.
Sounds like you're all set for "Away Coffee" with your set up. Excellent!
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!
Got Grinder?

We have a restaurant nearby (well, it's an hour north) called AJ Spurs  =
which is similar in menu and style to The Buckhorn Exchange...
I've swapped out the immersion heater for a Bodum Ibis. The immersion  =
heater was just taking too long to heat the water.
Thanks,

The Art Museum is not too far away from me... I'll give it a try.
Don't imagine I'll get over to Bolder, but thanks for the invite.
There is a funny little coffee machine (it says CV1 on the front)  
which takes these filter trays with pod-like coffee in a filter pack  
and brews into a paper cup. I have no hopes that it's any good, but  
I'll probably brew a cup to see what it's like. There is also a coffee/ 
gift shop downstairs open 24 hours that proudly serves Starbucks. They  
have a couple of superautomatics and some thermal pump pots. That  
doesn't look too hopeful either.
Good thing I brought some "Guatemala Fraijanes - Finca Agua Tibia" for  
the trip.
