Caffeine lovers have a new option at Speer and Federal: Bad Ass Coffee is now open in the location that has been empty since Starbucks closed last year. Bad Ass Coffee is a Hawaiian coffee company now based in Colorado and the North Denver location is currently their only Colorado location, though the company plans on expanding quickly.
“We love the location – proximity to downtown Denver, to North High School and with such a strong sense of community,” Bad Ass CEO Scott Synder told The Denver North Star.
Hawaiian coffee is known for its low acidity and smooth finish-it’s also one of only a handful of places in the U.S. that grows coffee. Customers can choose from a variety of blends, mixing Hawaiian and central american coffee beans, or splurge for 100% Kona. They also sell bags of beans to go.
Rebecca Caldwell, who works on marketing and communications for nearby North High School, said “they are wonderful neighbors and we’re thrilled to have them nearby,” explaining the company is working out partnerships with the school.
A portion of the first weekend’s sales were given to a nonprofit helping donkeys in respect to the role the animals have played in both Hawai’i’s and Colorado’s histories.
Bad Ass Coffee is located at 2990 Speer Blvd., Suite #1
