If you’re in Denver or ever visit, Kaladi Brothers Coffee is an essential stop. This is a favorite meetup point for DU area cyclists. You’ll know when you’re close because the aroma of the beans roasting can be smelled from blocks around. Only certified organic and fair-trade beans are used. If that isn’t enough, Kaladi Brothers roasts their beans in-house, with an air-roaster as opposed to the more popular drum-roaster. The result is a much cleaner, less bitter coffee. For those hot days, when you need a cold drink, I would highly suggest their special brewed “VC”. Equal to the excellent coffee is the beautiful, and always wonderful baristas (not pictured are the oh so handsome baristos). So on your next ride be sure to stop by pre, mid, or post and get your caffeine fix on. Oh and for those out of staters that may just want to try some of the beans, they’re available for order online.
