Two quick notes:
We will be closed on Saturday, May 18th for a family wedding.
Sorry for the inconvenience!
We will also be closed on Monday, May 27th in honor of Memorial Day.
As of Monday, there's a new face behind the counter at Bean Fosters! Keenan is our new barista / bookseller, joining owner-operators Truett and Shana, and he'll be around primarily during weekday mornings. Drop by sometime, introduce yourself and pick his brain a bit! Keenan hails from the land of Lakewood, reads whole lot of books, and has a lot of knowledge to share!
April's been crazy around here! Here are some quick blurbs on what's going on at and around Bean Fosters!
The new W Line Light Rail opens to the public this Friday! The entire light rail system will be free to ride Sat, 4/27, and we'll be hanging out at the Golden Station selling an awesome pairing of our Ethiopia Belakatu coffee with Jeanne's Cranberry Apple Pasties from 10am-ish to 3pm-ish. Come visit us! At the shop or at the station! Details on the RTD website!
It's been coffee week on NPR, which has provided much entertainment around here! And we haven't even listened to the Ten Songs for Coffee Lovers yet...! Lots of fun and accessible coffee education on their site right now though! Check it out here!
The Golden Transcript is taking votes for its 2013 Best of Jeffco issue, now through the end of April! Help out your favorite Golden businesses by voting, and keep Bean Fosters in mind for the Coffee, Bookstore and New Business categories! Vote here.
We're psyched to have Pedal Pushers Cyclery as new neighbors. They recently relocated from South Golden Rd and re-opened in our shopping center last week. Check 'em out, then go pay 'em a visit sometime! (Pay us a visit too!)
Novo Coffee - our favorite local coffee roasters - will be opening a retail location in Denver near 16th and Glenarm quite soon. We've seen their new location, equipment, people and product, and the experience should be stellar. Keep a close eye on the Novo Coffee Facebook Page for news of their opening, because this shop is coming quick, and will be worth checking out when you're downtown!

This month's session of Coffee With A City Councilor is this Saturday, April 6th at 10am and is entirely devoted to discussing the W Line Light Rail opening two blocks from us on April 26th! How is that going to affect Golden Ridge? How does this Community Call-and-Ride work? Come with questions! Officials will be here with answers!
Also, on April 27th, the entire light rail system will be free to ride, and there will be station parties going on all across the W Line from 10am-4pm. We happen to be serving coffee from a booth at the Jefferson County Courthouse that day, as well as keeping the shop open, so be sure to visit us that day! Perhaps at both locations!
Hooray for trains!
