During the summer of 2015 the entire family (except the dog) made a journey to the Great Plains, visiting friends in Nebraska and all along the Front Range of the Rockies in Colorado. It was great to see some friends we had not seen in many years, and of course to explore some coffee shops.
Two of the shops we visited are a mere 13-minute walk from each other, and share an interesting connection. Our friend -- and my former coffee student -- Sullivan Cohen has been a barista at both. More precisely, he gained experience as an expert barista at Boxcar in Boulder and was later hired to direct the coffee program at Wonder, a high-end juice bar at the other end of a very trendy retail corridor in this rapidly-evolving city.
Since visiting these two shops, we learned of a third station stop on the Sullivan Cohen Colorado Coffee Train.
He is now -- according to Coffee Daily News -- directing coffee at the Moxie Bread Company. Clearly, we need to return to Colorado, if for no other reason than to keep track of this BSU Coffee Achiever. (Of course there are other reasons, from the snow-capped mountains to the incredible art galleries and coffee-cherry beer and of course our friends throughout the Front Range. We'll be back!)
