At the corner of Broadway and 11th Avenue, in a renovated vintage building, there is a surprise for you. More than one, really. That is where we found the newly opened Amethyst Coffee Company, tucked lovingly into a corner.

Charming owner/barista Elle Taylor, formerly of another favorite spot, Little Owl Coffee, has created her own perfect coffee domain. The first austere impressions are quickly proven to be functional details that show off the space as roomy and cozy at the same time. Warm blond wood compliment white walls and counters. Both mirror the friendliness and professionalism of the staff. The day we were at the venue, CommonWealth coffee roaster extraordinaire Jason Farrar was in for a cup, joined by a pleasantly brisk in and out business from around the neighborhood. The coffee is good. The passion to create the perfect cup you specifically crave, is there. We want to come hang out here more often. Located on the ground floor of the Metlo building, bright and sunny, just for you.  Next door by the way,  is the tiny but impressive Pressed Juice Daily shop that serves up ‘Raw, Organic, Cold Pressed Juices & Cleanses’. It’s the new health trend in Denver and we expect it to replicate in no time. Believe us when we say: it’s worth every dime. Delicious, healthy and hassle free. Daily. We’re in!
