The elevation allows for slower roasting, so we can fully develop the unique and distinct flavors of each of our different blends. Our Roaster meticulously roasts every bean on a small batch roaster, by hand, five days a week. No computers, no graphs, no charts to tell us how a certain coffee should be roasted. All of their coffee comes from various African mations including Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee! If you’re not in the mood for coffee, enjoy beer and wine from Africa. Whitter Cafe believes in social justice and supports related causes.
English coffeehouses in the 17th and 18th centuries were significant meeting places, particularly in London. Coffeehouses were also known as “penny universities” because of the crowd that they attracted. Scholars and students alike were regulars, and anyone with a penny could enter and sit in on a lecture or have access to books or print news.
Located in the Clayton neighborhood, this shop makes everything in house, from its roasts to its morning pastries and sandwich breads. The second Thursday of every month is family dinner — attendees donate what they can and get a chance to meet their neighbors. After all, Mile High citizens were already regularly sipping on lattes and cappuccinos when residents of many other burgs were still content to start each morning with a sugar-filled cup of sludge from a fast food drive-thru. Pair a glass of wine, bubbles or craft beer with our chef’s selection of charcuterie & artisanal cheeses and small plates, or indulge in one of our hand-made chocolates and desserts.
