Best Coffee Shops in Denver for Freelancers
Today, a large fire at a construction site near my home (office) caused the power to go out for a number of hours. Because of this, I had to relocate to a nearby coffee shop to write this blog and get some work done. While a fire pushing me out of my house is a rare occurance, needing to get out of my home to accomplish some tasks is not.
Whether if it’s for a meeting, change of scenery, readily avaliable wifi, or simply a cup of coffee, here are some of the best coffee shops in Denver, Colorado for freelancers and the self-employed.
Denver Bicycle Cafe
“Denver Bicycle Cafe has produced one of the most unique drinking experiences in Denver, with an emphasis on locally-produced beer, quality coffee — and a full-service bike shop. If you need something fixed (and even if you don’t), sit down and sample one of the ever-changing tap selections from brewers like Renegade and River North, or crack open one of the many options from the cafe’s can collection. If coffee is what you brake for, the beans come from local roasters like Huckleberry. Bike maintenance classes, plenty of bike parking and a free air compressor sweeten the deal, making Denver Bicycle Cafe the town’s top haven for bicyclists.” – Westworld
Corvus Coffee Roasters
“The Platt Park flagship boasts a Dutch-made roaster, while the DTC branch showcases loads of high-tech brewing equipment, but either way, the regulars chilling at the community tables of these hip, minimalist coffee bars can count on an array of espresso drinks made with single-origin and small-batch beans grown on family farms across the globe.” – Zagat
Roostercat Coffee House
“Roostercat is open from the crack of dawn to almost midnight, and offers something for everyone, whether they need their daily caffeine infusion — the shop uses beans from Denver roaster Coda Coffee Company — or a gluten-free sandwich. The friendly atmosphere is complemented by plenty of outdoor seating: a patio with two fire pits and a rooftop deck facing west.” – Westworld
Crema Coffee House
“Crema Coffeehouse draws its name from the rich, caramel-colored foam that caps any decent shot of espresso right after it’s pulled. And that’s the primary job of the baristas at Crema: to pull decent shots of espresso. They also brew coffee from a handful of roasters, including local outfits Novo and Ozo. Crema is located on Larimer Street, just above the Ballpark neighborhood. It’s one of the most eclectic areas in town, and local artists and musicians spend a lot of time on the couches in this sparse, urban shop.” – Westworld
“In a stylish reclaimed space in North Capitol Hill, Novo Coffee roasts its beans weekly on vintage Vittoria machines (one of which is, no lie, powered by a Ferrari motor). The baristas here know their stuff when it comes to coffee so the best way to order is to ask them what’s up. They’ll probably recommend one of the daily rotating roasts because they’re fresh, but if you’re feeling experimental, go for a specialty drink like an orange zest mocha.” – Thrillist
