Not Many People Realize That You Can Tour This Amazing Colorado Coffee Roaster

When you think of where the best coffee comes from, which places come to mind? Brazil? Costa Rica? Seattle? I’m willing to bet that you guessed anywhere but Colorado, right? If you don’t think of the Centennial State when you think of excellent coffee, you have obviously never heard of this amazing Colorado roaster, which not only makes the best beans, but offers guests a chance to see just how they are made:

Located in Denver’s Larimer Square lies the quaint and delicious Novo Coffee, who roasts their beans in vintage Vittoria machines and is “always striving for constant improvement in search of a delicious cup.” Served at numerous restaurants and cafes throughout the state, Novo Coffee is a unique Colorado company not only in the way they make their delicious coffees, but also in the way they connect with the community. Take, for instance, their tours and tastings (or, as they call refer to it, “cuppings”), which take place every Friday at noon and features a tour of the facility PLUS a “tasting and discussion on origin, brewing, and flavor profiles led by our head roaster, Erich.” The hour long tour and tasting session costs $15 a person and comes complete with not only flavorful samples, but also your own bag of coffee to take home!

Novo Coffee is located at 3008 Larimer Street and is open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm. For more information on Novo’s different varieties of coffee, tours, and more, please visit their website.
