Just because you’re a long drive from downtown Denver’s RiNo or Capitol Hill neighborhoods doesn’t mean you can’t to enjoy a local cup of coffee. Put the Starbucks and Caribou run on hold for a day or two and sample the four hippest cafes in Adams County.

Ziggi’s Coffee

Address: 10401 Belle Creek Blvd. No. 100, Henderson

Hours: 5 a.m.–8 p.m. Monday-Friday, 6 a.m.–8 p.m. Saturday, 6 a.m.–7 p.m. Sunday

Contact: 303-682-5120

About: You don’t have to go to a nationwide chain to get a cup of joe on the go. Ziggi’s Coffee, a small Colorado franchise, offers a drive-thru lane for those mornings where you’re running late as well as a sit-down cafe for lazy weekend afternoons. Visit the Henderson outpost to satisfy your coffee, tea, smoothie or even gelato craving.

Allegro Coffee Company

Address: 12799 Claude Court, Thornton

Hours: 7 a.m.–2 p.m. Monday-Friday

Contact: 303-444-4844

About: If Allegro Coffee sounds familiar, you’ve probably swung by a neighborhood Whole Foods Market on a recent grocery run. This Boulder-born coffee company has been the roaster for the natural grocer since the mid-90s. Whole Foods acquired Allegro in 1997, but they maintain a single freestanding cafe in Thornton. Stop in for some world-class coffee with plenty of local ties.

About: Tired of ordering your plain latte or standard cold brew? The specialty drinks at Candis’ Coffee Table in Brighton are anything but bland. Spice up your daily coffee with the vanilla, red pepper, cayenne latte and cayenne mocha. Or, keep it sweet and try their honey, ginger lattes and mochas. Keep an eye out for seasonal offerings, including orange, cranberry flavors for fall and mulled spices in winter.

Delight Me Sweets

Hours: 7 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday-Friday, 7 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday

au lait and cannoli at this shop. You can even pick up a baker’s dozen of bagels with cream cheese for a morning meeting at the office, or order a custom cake design for your friend’s big birthday bash.
