- BLUE SPARROW COFFEE -

Do you have wifi?


We do! Both locations have FREE wifi available. Blake St. Location: The entire Backyard on Blake property, inside, outside, and the beautiful rooftop is covered in one network. Connect to "BackyardonBlake" once and you're covered while you're drinking coffee, shopping, or relaxing on the rooftop. Platte St. Location: Our Platte St location also has great WIFI that works in our space, on our patio, and in the building lobby where there is more seating. Connect to "BlueSparrowCoffee" for public access.




Do you offer any local or industry discounts?


To keep it simple and to thank our entire neighborhood we have punch cards for everyone. For every 8 drinks you buy, your next one is on us, so go crazy!




What coffee do you use for espresso?


We usually have Sträva's Courage espresso blend on espresso, but that may change from time to time.




What is Japanese iced coffee?


This is by far the most asked question in the coffee shop. Japanese iced coffee is brewed hot, and flash chilled over ice to "lock in" the more delicate aromas and tastes of the coffee. For a more in-depth discussion and how to make it at home, check out this article by Rohs Street Cafe. Or this article by Food52.




Do you have nitro cold brew?


Not only do we have house made nitro cold brew on tap, but we also have a CBD nitro cold brewed coffee on tap made with Sträva's Restore coffee--from their Peace & Wellness collection. If cold brew isn't your thing we also have Japanese iced coffee on tap.




What is CBD coffee?


Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the most prevalent chemical compounds in the cannabis plant. Unlike the more famous molecule, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is completely nonpsychoactive. Learn more about Sträva specific CBD Coffee here. Or about CBD and it's possible health benefits here. We always have Sträva's CBD coffee on our retail shelf as well as a cold brewed option on a nitro tap.




Do you offer any pour-over coffees?


We've decided to focus on our filter coffee instead. We have (and continue to) spend hours calibrating our equipment and adjusting our settings to each coffee. This allows us to provide the highest level of quality, consistency, and in a timely manor. We have our featured roasters on filter coffee bringing you coffee grown and roasted in all corners of the world. Spheres have corners right? Read More




What are your food options?


We are currently offering pastries from Black Box Bakery--a local bakery handcrafting world class pastries. Local, hand made biscotti from Genova's Biscotti, and house made grab and go breakfast items currently available at our Platte st. location. We take pride in everything we do, so you can rest assured that all of our products are made fresh every day.




What are your caffeine-free options?


We can make all of your favorite espresso drinks caffeine-free with Sträva decaf espresso. Other options inclue hot chocolate, herbal teas from Rishi, kombucha from Upstart, or our baristas favoriate golden latte made with Golden Root.




Are dogs allowed?


Denver health code doesn't allow pets of any kind in an eating establishment unless your pet is a licensed service dog or miniature horse ( no we did not make that up, page 14 paragraph 102). Blake St. Location: Even though we can't technically allow pets inside we do have a patio and a rooftop patio where you can hang out with your furry friend(s). Platte St. Location: Our Platte st. location is connected to a lobby of the office building we are located in, and pets are allowed both inside the lobby and on our patio outside. If you have other questions, refer to the City of Denver’s guidance brochure, or their service animal FAQ page.




Do you have outlets?


We do have outlets at some but not all of our seats at both locations.




Is there a bathroom attached?


Blake St. Location: A shared bathroom is available to all patrons of Backyard on Blake within the courtyard on the ground level of the property. Chat with the baristas on how to access. Platte St. Location: Bathrooms are available past our shop within the Circa building near the parking garage entrance.




What milk options do you have available?


We offer a variety of options for your dietary restrictions. Milk options: half and half, whole, skim, soy, almond, and oat milk
