In Denver, Colorado, there exists a hotel that is frequented by visitors from out of town and local residents alike. The hotel is appropriately titled “The Source,” and on the first floor, it features an expansive, forty-nine thousand square foot culinary hub. Within this hub are all sorts of restaurants and businesses, but one of them is a coffee shop and cafe known as Caffe Figurati.

A Coffee Shop With a Twist
The coffee shop is essentially a storefront realization of Commonwealth Coffee Roaster’s products, but with a twist. Commonwealth has another cafe where they conduct their roasting and coffee crafting, but at Caffee Figurati, they use their beans to form a menu with a spin geared toward Italian espresso styles and Japanese tea.
This cultural flair of international details is what sets the caffe apart from its brother, but likewise, with serving Commonwealth roasts, Caffe Figurati does not exclude the standards.
No matter if a person is ordering a drink exclusive to the shop at The Source or a more typical style of beverage, the quality that Commonwealth strives to achieve in their roasts helps make all options worthy of purchase.
Caffee Figurati is New to the Neighborhood
Caffe Figurati was only established as recently as 2018, when Commonwealth Coffee founder, Jason Farrar, took advantage of a former coffee shop in The Source moving on and away.
The space features a sleek, yet comfortable design. There are round, wooden tables and metal chairs throughout, but also long, narrow, bar-like tables with a fair number of stools saddled along them.
The decor is minimalist, with a vase of flowers here, a small painting there, and a touch of orange and blue colors gracing the couches, complimenting the otherwise white and light-brown interior.
The beverages they offer can be served in glasses and mugs if you want to hang out for a while, or to-go cups if you’re a hotel-goer on the way out, but in either case, the options are the same.
Sugar in Every Cup
All the coffee they serve has a light amount sugar added to it, which can be excluded by requested, but the options consist of macchiatos, cappuccinos, americanos, lattes, drip coffee, nitro cold brew, and espresso. With the two latter items, both can be ordered in an available roast of your choice, and the espresso will be freshly ground upon order.
The tea options at Caffe Figurati are vast, divided into five different menu sections, including ripe puer, raw puer, oolongs, black/red tea, and white and green tea.
Serving Pour Overs and Specialty Drinks
The pour over bar features a rotating cast of options, but some of these have been a Civitas, which is a mix of toffee, dark sugar, and guatemalan and ethiopian coffee, and a Rwanda, which combines raspberry, cinnamon, black tea, and dried fruit.
The Caffe is Unique and Enticing
Being a caffe and not just a coffee bar, there are also pastries on-hand provided by Babette’s. Whether you are coming to the hotel to stay overnight, to attend a culinary or musical event that The Source hosts on its roof, or simply to dine or have a cup of quality coffee or tea, Caffe Figurati provides a unique and enticing option.
