Denver Eater: Novo Coffee Roasters Ready to Open Its Downtown Location

NovoGalleryHead.jpgNovo Coffee Roasters is very close to opening its retail location at 1600 Glenarm Street, downtown Denver. The coffee shop anticipates serving by next week. This will be the only retail location of the local roaster after a previous retail location in the Denver Art Museum was closed over a year ago.

The 1000 square foot space was designed with assistance from Open Studioand graphics by Rick Griffith. The space is modern with high ceilings, concrete floors accented by graphics, dark and natural-colored woods, and black and white walls. The accent color is blue and that is present both in the espresso maker and in some of the stools used in the space. Reclaimed materials were used in the build-out, including wood sourced from a high school in Boulder that was transformed into the bar top, table top, and the wall display behind the bar.
