Owned and Operated Since 2014 By Two Local Roasters

Middle State Coffee was created in 2014 and is owned by Jay DeRose and Scott Hill. The special packaging made its way onto the scene in 2018. It was a way to have some extra fun with the special roasts they create. It also added a unique flair to the coffee experience.

They moved into a 3,000 square foot location to help them expand their wholesale roasting business and to have more space for customers to stop in and enjoy a hot cup of coffee.

The Space Is Bright and Airy and Feels Like Something Out of NY City

The location had an edgy, urban feel to it with white brick walls, concrete floors, and wood and metal accents throughout. The space is bright and airy with high ceilings that give it more of a New York City industrial loft feel than an urban Denver coffee shop.

The white tones are broken up by green art pieces, lights, and vegetation. The roaster is behind a glass door, so you can see for yourself what it looks like to roast coffee. It’s in a busy location where people can simply wander in off the streets and order a great cup of coffee.

Try Fresh Pastries or Waffles With Your Drink Selection

The baristas are friendly and the coffee is made with care. Whether you want a chai, an espresso, a cortado, or a macchiato, there is something for you. Add your favorite syrup, double up the shots, and make each cup your own.

The menu also includes waffles and a variety of fresh pastries including flaky croissants. They are serious about offering the best delights to go alongside the best coffee. Not sure what will go best with your drink? Just ask the baristas. They are helpful and knowledgeable.
