Realtors have a vested interest in neighborhoods: they want to be able to tell potential buyers, "this is a good place to live." They also spend a lot of time waiting around for potential buyers to show up.
Drip's Perspective on Hemp-Infused CBD Coffee
This interview is part of a larger series by 303 Magazine online, "Get to Know Denver's CBD Scene." Here, our owner, Joel Stewart, discusses his take on the subtle trend. Find a link to the complete article at the bottom.
1. How do you serve Strava’s CBD coffee? We don't sell actually sell it on tap. However, we do offer small pour overs and whole bean coffee for sale on our retail shelf.
2. Has the community taken to it well? At first, there was simply a general curiosity about something new and different in the coffee market. However, once they purchase a 12oz bag, take it home and try it, people really seem to enjoy it. We have a fairly strong base of regulars who come in looking for it. We even have a couple who drive in from Kansas specifically for CBD Coffee.
3. As one of four places in Denver serving CBD coffee, why do you feel that it hasn’t become more popular? Generally, it is just a lack of awareness about the benefits of CBD coffee, especially when you move into the medicinal levels such as Strava's 120mg Restore. We feel our job is to help people become more knowledgeable about the product. However, we still encounter questions about any hallucinogenic effects, which there are none!
4. What do you feel is necessary in order for it to become more popular? We have started to promote it within the Physical Therapy community as part of a holistic approach to helping patients overcome injuries and illness. Due to their high-quality coffee, we started carrying Strava long before they began infusing CBD. So the product speaks for itself and offers a really good cup of coffee. Now it just happens to provide the benefits of CBD. Once someone tries it they become great marketing ambassadors. Hopefully this, along with the increased exposure of being featured in 303 Magazine, will help get the word out.

"Olives & Coffee," Genova's Biscotti Blog
"As my eyes wander from my computer, I realize with shock that this loft in Café Ole is nearly identical to the loft of Drip Denver, my mom’s coffee shop. The orangey-red décor, tables and barstools for standing and sitting; people reading, working, talking, and musing; the smell of toasted sandwiches and toasted milk… Even the cherry wood and dark metal railings are the same. There’s a woman working behind the bar. Even though the lady behind the salad bar makes sandwiches, not biscotti, I feel like she’d fit right in with the Genova’s crew. The photos on the wall are kitsch romanticized images of lovers on stairs, vapid tourists, and stars like Elvis and Marilyn. Looking at them I remember with delight that when my family purchased Drip we removed the same classic, silly photos from Drip’s walls to promote modern work by local artists. Now, I want to ask my mom to put them back up..."

Denver Westword: THE TEN BEST DENVER COFFEEHOUSES WITH BOOZE
"Drip has been brewing rich coffee in the Beauvallon building on Lincoln Street since 2012, but just added liquor this fall. The warm, cozy cafe has just the right touch of elegance to lend it the ambiance of an old-world conservatory without seeming stuffy. The food is mostly of the grab-and-go (or grab-and-stay) variety, making Drip a prime spot for neighbors to pop in and catch up. Adult beverages include a few beers and wines along with a a small collection of spirits chosen for their affinity for coffee: amaretto, Irish whiskey, Frangelico and Kahlua."
