My small town of Arvada, Colorado was home to the famous Novo Coffee‘s shop, The Arvada Coffee Bar, and I didn’t even know it!
Since I wrote this post, Novo Coffee has gone away and there’s a new coffee shop there. I haven’t tried it yet, but will soon!
Heartbreaker is a proprietary blend of Novo Coffee, headquartered in Denver, Colorado.
Now, I loooove coffee, and my obsession goes all the way back to fond memories of buying Starbucks from a cart on the streets of Seattle back in the early 1980s. So here I am reading about this great and famous coffee roaster, and discover that their own shop, The Arvada Coffee Bar, is within walking distance of my house in Arvada. Uh-oh, looks like I got caught not paying attention!
So of course I had to try Novo Coffee. My daughter and I dropped in yesterday afternoon, shortly before closing time. The shop is in a little walk-up area that includes Vitamin Cottage and Great Harvest Bread Company. (These are seriously popular places – when I’m showing houses anywhere in the vicinity, clients often remark, “Wonderful – I’ll be so close to Vitamin Cottage and Great Harvest.” I haven’t experienced that with any other similar businesses.)
The store was clean, the barista was very friendly and helpful, and the aroma was heavenly. Amanda and I each had a latte, and they definitely lived up to their reputation.
Now, I’m not going to bore you by re-writing everything that’s been written about Novo Coffee. Here’s a few articles you can read for yourself:

I write posts on the communities between Denver and Boulder, to give people an idea of the ‘flavor’ of our community, in case they’re new or moving to the Denver area. Read more about life in Arvada, Colorado. And here’s a little intro to Olde Town Arvada.
