There's a new place and a new way to get your caffeine starting today: Corrected Coffee a pop-up, launched in the Basta restaurant at the Peloton in Boulder. "The barista is in always in charge of correcting your coffee," says Kelly Whitaker of Basta, "and that is how we came up with Corrected Coffee (or Caffè Corretto in Italian), the name of our new morning pop-up," he adds.

Caffè corretto is an Italian beverage made up of a shot of espresso with a a small amount of liquor, usually grappa. This is something Corrected Coffee is offering on its menu - a coffee cocktail of sorts that blends the espresso with a .5 ounce shot of grappa. But there is more, of course - espresso-based drinks crafted only with LaMill coffee beans, hot and cold brewed and pour over coffee made with locally roasted beans, and a few food items.

The food offerings are well-edited but attractive. There are item like scratch biscuits served with house made jam, lardo, and honey butter, granola served with almond milk, , and fry-to-order ricotta doughnuts, among other things.

Corrected Coffee is the only coffee shop in Colorado featuring Los Angeles-roasted LaMill beans. The locally roasted beans used in pour overs and brewed coffee drinks will rotate, with the first one being Huckleberry Roasters.

Whether it is by pouring a great shot of espresso or running a well-tuned espresso machine, the baristas at Corrected Coffee will attempt to craft a great caffeinated beginning to the day for those swing by on weekdays from 7 to 11 a.m.
