The 2500 block of Larimer just got hotter this morning with the opening of Huckleberry Roasters. The new 700 square foot RiNo coffee shop is housed in the same complex as the very popular Work & Class and the much anticipated Cart Driver. The development, brainchild of Gravitas, combines 29 reclaimed shipping containers previously used for transporting goods around the world.
Aside from coffee crafted with beans that Huckleberry Roasts itself, there will be a toast program featuring bread from Babette's, pastries from the Wooden Spoon and Babette's, and a full retail area where guests can purchase bags of coffee beans, but also other local items ranging from fashion to art that will change on a rotating basis.
What is a toast program? "It's basically toast and jam that we serve all day," says owner Koan Goedman. "I am a little Dutch kid and what that is just something I grew up with. Our toast is $2.50 and it is just really simple," he adds.
The twenty seats, with more seating coming on the patio, will accommodate those seeking a socially active environment, but also anyone who wants to connect to the free wifi and plug a laptop into the few outlets available to get some work done.
Owned by Koan Goedman and Mark Mann, Huckleberry was founded in 2011 as a coffee roaster. At the end of 2013, Goedman and Mann opened their first retail location in Sunnyside at 4301 Pecos Street. The RiNo outpost of Huckleberry Roasters will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. In the next few weeks, hours of operations may adjust up or down to match the demand and needs of customers.
