Before and After
After 21 years we moved our Highland coffeehouse from 32nd & Lowell to our roaster building in Sunnyside at 44th & Vallejo!
Denver, CO, August 7, 2013– After more than two decades in business, Common Grounds Coffeehouse has relocated its premier coffeehouse.
Now comfortable situated in the Sunnyside neighborhood at the corner of 44th Avenue at Vallejo Street, the coffeehouse will continue its mission of providing a community gathering place for North Denver with great coffee and food. The location has been the site of the company’s roasting operation for the past decade but is known locally as “the Radiator Shop” which was its initial incarnation. In honor of its new location a new coffee blend will be unveiled:
The Sunnyside Radiator Blend. The Sunnyside Neighborhood has always been one of Denver’s working class communities. Its history is rich with stories of hardworking descendents of immigrants from all over the globe. This coffee blend will be created using an unusual process which roasts beans from Mexico and Sumatra at the same time, creating sweet yet deep flavor. This cultural melting pot of a community warms the city like a toasty radiator.
Common Grounds has been around a long time. We are entering our third decade serving the best coffee and community in Denver. From the beginning we were THE place to meet "the people" in Denver. Just a few weeks after opening then candidate for the Democratic presidential ticket, Jerry Brown (current governor of California) came to the coffeehouse to campaign...along with hundreds of interested citizens! After that we became the place to meet active, engaged community. During the 1996 campaigns then-First Lady (now Secretary of State) Hillary Clinton hosted a Business Women's Roundtable at Common Grounds. Presidential, State, and local politicians and organizers knew they needed to engage North Denver if they wanted to succeed.
