When I was living that apartment life, I would have paid untold amounts of money in extra each month to have a high-quality coffee bar in the complex. And then to have that coffee bar serve Sweet Bloom Coffee Roasters, well, for my bank account's sake, it's probably best that such amenities were never afforded to me.
But that's what Coffee Theorem in Parker, Colorado are offering. Located inside the clubhouse of the Montane Apartments, Coffee Theorem is a full-service coffee bar—featuring a La Marzocco GS3 and a host of Mahlkönig grinders—and is a go-to coffee hub for tenants and non-tenants alike. So let's check it out, shall we? And maybe see if there are any one-bedrooms available for rent.
As told to Sprudge by Emily Wuckert.
For those who aren’t familiar, will you tell us about your company?
Coffee Theorem is a small-business that focuses on the craft and precision of coffee (and tea). We support and source from local businesses and use quality ingredients that are the base canvas for our work. We strive to provide our customers with the proof of good coffee by measured accuracy in every grind, dose, tamp, and pour.
Can you tell us a bit about the new space?
Located in the clubhouse of the Montane Apartments, Coffee Theorem has bar seating, comfortable sitting areas, and a quiet meeting room where our customers and the tenants can enjoy their coffee. The floor above is a small gym area and just outside is a lazy river and pool. (Tenant access only.) The open bar seating is wonderful for people who would like to watch our baristas work and the sitting areas are perfect for groups of all sizes. We are kid-friendly, dog-friendly, and wheelchair accessible.
What’s your approach to coffee?
The craft of coffee should be just as enjoyable as drinking it. The fun is in the slow perfection over time and tinkering, but the proof of success is in the mouth-watering taste that we acquire through measured accuracy. Every coffee shop I admire is at its best when the barista truly cares. That's why Coffee Theorem is determined to be consistently passionate and strives for every cup to taste like it was crafted from the heart.
Any machines, coffees, special equipment lined up?
