A dreary Monday morning calls for just one thing: A tall cup of strong coffee. For that we head to Crema Coffeehouse
, a tiny, edgy spot on north Larimer Street.
Here, owner Noah Price brews Novo Coffee
, the locally based company that inspires a cult-like following. If you're lucky, the Aceh from Sumatra will be brewing (and if not, request it). A heady tonic, your cup will hint of molasses, even cola---and needs no milk or sugar.
Price is my cousin, but his dedication to coffee, distilling its nuances, and his mission to become Denver's version of Stumptown Coffee Roasters
, would have won me over regardless of family ties.
