Stay Cool!

It's springtime, and it's getting hot out there. Well, sometimes. Anyway.
Stay cool friends. We can help:

We love affogatos! 'Affogato' means something like 'drowned' in Italian, and (around here) refers to a scoop of ice cream, drowned with a double-shot of espresso. Some say ice cream is the only acceptable sweetener for espresso -- it's certainly a delicious dessert!

Ice Cream
We searched throughout the Denver metro-area for the best local-made ice cream we could find, and were drawn to Little Man Ice Cream out of Denver. Turns out the people there are awesome too, as is their Scoop for Scoop program; check 'em out, then visit us for some affogatos, or even just some tasty scoops of Vanilla, Chocolate, Salted Oreo, or Peach Cobbler Ice Cream. There may be even more flavors on the way as summer comes along!

Iced Coffee
Fun fact: we serve our ridiculously popular cold-brew iced coffee (or toddy -- whatever you want to call it) all year round! What's up with cold-brew? Essentially, to make cold-brew iced coffee, we just place coarse-ground coffee in room-temperature or refrigerated water over a 12-24 hr period then filter out the grounds, and pour it over ice. It's a little more work than the traditional double-strength coffee pot over ice method, and well worth the smoother flavor. Most days we use a tasty espresso blend, but we'll often put some single-origin African coffees on cold brew as well (such as Belekatu in the picture above!)

Iced Tea
We're back to brewing iced tea daily! Varieties include Teatulia Tulsi Infusion Tea as well as Teatulia Green Tea. Teatulia is a Denver-based tea company using exclusively direct-trade, USDA organic, Northern Bangladesh teas and herbs. The Green Tea is crisp and tasty, while the Tulsi Infusion is especially distinctive iced, with a strong black tea flavor smoothed out with some subtle floral and sweet spice flavors. Try 'em out!

Bean Fosters Diner Mugs and More!

Diner Mug
We have some nifty new mugs in! Get one between now and April 4th and we'll put a free standard 8oz drink in it for you! They're incredibly heavy, high quality porcelain and have quickly become our favorite brewed coffee mugs.

Best of the Best
The Golden Transcript is taking votes for its 2015 Best of the Best listings, now through the end of April 12th. Golden's a nifty place with lots of great businesses -- so help us all out by voting for the best ones! In fact, you can vote once per day. And keep Bean Fosters in mind for Best Coffee Shop and Best Bookstore!

Did You Know?
We have an excellent space for groups. And we sometimes rent our space out after-hours for a low hourly rate in addition to sales. For instance, we happen to be open for business until 8pm on Wednesday nights from now through the end of May, when Horizon Christian Fellowship rents our space for a weekly study. (There's plenty of space to hang out while they're here!)

Also, during open hours, you can reserve our large table to meet at ahead of time for groups of five or more. If you're ever interested in utilizing our space, feel free to talk to us about it in-store, or shoot us an email!

New Things for 2015!

Well, hello! Check out what's new at Bean Fosters so far in 2015!

Burrito Mayhem
It's true. Burrito mayhem! Totally out of control.

We have three new burrito options rolling out before January ends! First, the new Chorizo and Spicy Bacon breakfast burritos, with the tasty eggs, roasted green chiles, potatoes, cheddar and monterey jack cheeses you've enjoyed in our Spicy Sausage, Bacon and Veggie breakfast burritos. We're also bringing in a new Chicken lunch burrito, with basmati rice, pinto beans, a chipotle sauce and monterey jack cheese. These are brought to us fresh by the ladies at Mame's Burrito Company in Denver -- a mother and daughters trio that lovingly make our burritos by hand and deliver them to us. They taste excellent on their own, and free sides of Horsetooth Hot Sauce or Gilberto's Mild Salsa are always available with them!

Our expanded line-up of seven Mame's burrito options will be replacing both Santiago's burritos and our current gluten free burrito option by February 2nd.

The Crafty Caramel Mocha
Two months ago we introduced a new single-origin Twenty-Four Blackbirds craft drinking chocolate, as well as our in-house made salted caramel sauce. However, most of our customers have yet to mix the two together! Add two tasty shots of Espresso Novo, and some steamed, local, Farmer's All Natural Milk and you have the Best Caramel Mocha of Your Life. No joke. Give our Caramel Mocha a try sometime soon; we'll be showcasing it for a few months.

Brew Methods
Did you know? We have a nifty collection of manual coffee brewing methods available behind the counter! We've always competently served a handful of pour overs and presses per day, but in the next few weeks we're going to be rolling out a full menu of all of the options above! We also have most of these supplies available for purchase retail, so feel free to ask questions, have something demonstrated, and pick up a brew method for use at-home!
