From Boston to Denver: Exploring a New City Through Coffee Shops

recent watercolor illustrations done at different coffee shops (and one from home, too)

The move from Boston to Denver is certainly a change. I miss Boston, but also love having the chance to explore my new city. Denver's coffee culture is much more vibrant than expected. There are tons of local roasters and many superb local coffee shops. I've been slowly making my way through this article/map on the 25 best coffee shops in Denver and am learning my way around the city slowly in this way.

I've also been drawing some of my teacup collection at home, especially when I just want tea. I never attempt to make coffee at home since I pretty much only want it if it's an espresso drink. Maybe someday cold brew could happen at home. In the meantime I am more than happy to get my caffeine high from places like Quincessential Coffeehouse, and Bellwether (which also serves whiskey and an amazing coffee cocktail all day long). 

Can't wait to sip more coffee and see more of Denver. Let me know if you have any recommendations! And if you'd like me to paint a cup for you, check out my Cup Portraits page.
