Saturday August 9th: Caffeine Crawl

Innisfree and Buchanan’s are honored to have been selected for this national event this Saturday August 9. This is the first time a coffee shop on University Hill has been included. Thank you to Conscious Coffees.

What could be better than fresh mountain air, gorgeous scenery, and a cup of great coffee, tea, chai, or drinking chocolate? We’re not sure, but we are thrilled to offer just that on the 2014 Boulder and Ft. Collins 2-day Caffeine Crawl!

Boulder’s 2012 Crawl was a blast, and after the success of our first-ever bike route on Denver’s Crawl last year, we were inspired to tap into Boulder and Ft. Collins active, and beverage loving culture to create our first 2-day car-free event.

This will be our fourth Caffeine Crawl in the beautiful state of Colorado. In Boulder, on Saturday, August 9th, we are excited to include returning participants Boxcar Coffee, The Cup, Ozo Coffee, and Piece, Love and Chocolate. Also adding new participants Precision Pours, The Unseen Bean Cafe, and representing local sponsor Conscious Coffee are Buchanan’s Coffee Pub and Innisfree Poetry Bookstore & Cafe. Making for a fantastic, caffeinated event in Boulder.

On Sunday, day 2, Ft. Collins will host their first Caffeine Crawl. It promises to be equally awesome, and we plan to have a bonus stop (to be announced later) at one of the local craft beer locations adding to a day of coffee and tea! On the four routes to select from are the following shops – The Bean Cycle, Happy Lucky’s Teahouse, Harbinger Coffee, The Kitchen, and The Starry Night Cafe.

You won’t want to miss the magic, so join us for a weekend of open air, chocolatey goodness, specialty tea, and an artsy, free-spirited coffee scene.
