a working persons coffee shop
Calling Bellwether just another coffee shop is rather a misnomer. There is Ruckus clothing, a men’s barber shop in the back, and to top it off, whiskey. Bellwether of Denver CO is whiskey, fashion and a coffee shop, wrapped up in one perfect package.
Of course I will focus on the coffee aspect of Bellwether, which just opened up in Denver a little over a month ago, and they have already established a loyal fan base of coffee lovers. The espresso is served up very professionally, and done to perfection. If you are a fan of Boxcar coffee this is the place to get it done right, I had a cappuccino that was made just right, and I could taste the very distinctive trade taste of Boxcar, sweet cherry notes with caramel, and chocolate undertones, all in a small shot of espresso and steamed milk.
The lobby of Bellwether is roomy and done in very simple white, black and grey colors, that work well together, making it surprisingly cozy, creating a space a that invites lively conversation, and shopping. The staff there is very relaxed and easy going, but most importantly, they were very attentive to the customers that walked in the door, making everyone feel welcomed.
Over all I found Bellwether a very cool, and hip coffee shop to be in, I did not feel too old or out of place at Bellwether, but rather, I found a new place I could easily call my second home, as I see many people do. Bellwether is working to be a hub of community activity, and they are off to a very good start. When I am in Denver, you will most certainly find me there, doing what I love and do best, drinking coffee.
