In 2017, Caleb and Jeanie Sprenger initiated a campaign on Kickstarter with the goal of funding the creation of their dream coffee shop. The plans had been in the works for a fair amount of time, but after generating ten thousand dollars through online donations, the Sprenger duo were able to welcome their generous patrons to Sapor Coffee and Concepts by 2018.

They Never Use Syrups
The concept of Sapor involves taking coffee back to the basics. This does not exclude being artistic and inventive with their craft, but rather narrows their focus to presenting a true coffee experience. Sapor does not include syrups in any of their drinks, as in their own words, doing so “hides” the coffee.
Serving Pure Coffee From Local Roasters
To them, drowning the coffee in a sea of different flavors and additives would be backwards thinking, as where the true flavor lies is in the coffee itself. Sapor proudly serves the local Lakewood roasts of Sweet Bloom Coffee Roasters.
The connection Sweet Bloom creates with the farmers it sources its beans from ensures that the quality is high. Placing emphasis on the health of the plants that the beans come from, and not just the beans themselves, helps the promote the flavors from the very beginning till it is sloshing into customers’ mouths.
It’s a Family Affair
The owner of Sweet Bloom, Andy Sprenger, is the uncle of Sapor’s Caleb Sprenger, and through this relationship, Sapor is able to provide Sweet Bloom to the cafe-going community at large.
While you can visit Sweet Bloom’s website to view and purchase their roasts, Sapor Coffee and Concepts likes to keep their menu within the confines of their cafe. Yes, you can expect the coffee standards such as espresso, drip coffee, pour overs, cold brew, and more.
Despite not using syrups, they do still serve lattes, as milk is not beyond them. Further beverages served are seasonal coffees, teas, chai, matcha, and kombucha.
The Menu is Mysterious For a Reason
In keeping the secrets of their menu guarded, Sapor still provides rough descriptions, just enough to entice a person to try something, but the ingredients are intentionally left out with the purpose of letting the customer figure them out for themselves. Much like a beer or wine tasting, coffee is a delicacy at Sapor.
Modern Decor and Nice Natural Lighting
The space that customers seat themselves and test their taste buds is an open and inviting one. Mostly covered in blacks and whites, the look is modern.
The white topped coffee bar is in the center of the room, with five sides of its hexagonal structure encompassed by black metal stools that allow for customers to engage with the baristas in direct, friendly fashions. A wooden platform hovers over the bar, equipped with a bit of lighting, but most of the light comes naturally through the multiple window-walls.
There is Plenty of Seating at Sapor Coffee
A couple of these walls also have stools draped in front of them for those that want a direct view of the outside, and otherwise, there are also standard tables and chairs. Sapor Coffee and Concepts can seat a lot of people and is ready to serve the secret subtitles of Sweet Bloom.
