At Bin 707 Foodbar, we offer top of the line, local and domestic wines, beer and spirits. Did you know we also offer top of the line Colorado Owned coffees, and teas?

As is true for all areas of Bin 707 Foodbar- we go out of our way to deliver you the best products available. This is why when it comes to espresso- we use Copper Door Coffee Roasters out of Denver, and when it comes to the perfect Chai- we use Bhakti Chai out of Boulder.

Copper Door Coffee Roasters began as a small operation started by Sinjin Eberle in college. With a background as a barista, Sinjin decided to begin roasting his own beans and started with one simple goal in mind: no burnt coffee. Since then, Copper Door Coffee Roasters has become a small-batch company that provides people with consistently good beans. They use all American-made machinery to roast their coffee beans- which are purchased at well-above fair trade prices. These beans come in honestly and are never roasted until they are ordered- which is why they stay so fresh. This devotion to fresh, fairly traded beans serves to offer a product that is the way coffee and espresso should be: delicious by it’s self, every time.

Bhakti Chai also began as a small project that aimed to re-create the rich flavors of Northern India’s masala chai. They have now grown into a Sofi: best of specialty food “Outstanding Hot Beverage” award winning company with a huge following. They offer a product that is as personable as it is soulful, blended with the intent of being enjoyed in many forms. Bhakti means “devotion” and is intended to be lived out through social action- as such Bhakti Chai is devoted to all organic flavors with all of their foreign tea being fair trade certified. They also devote themselves to the Bhakti principle through social action by donating a percentage of their revenue to various programs which support women’s rights. So while you’re at Bin 707 Foodbar enjoying your Bhakti beverage, you can rest assured it’s not just an iced tea or latte you’re supporting but also a cause.

From taking espresso back to a place of pure, complex flavor with above fair trade standards, to social action through delicious chai- we are glad to serve products that not only are the best quality, but that also have a deep calling to do things right. Bin 707 Foodbar offers Bhakti Chai’s original chai blend which is vegan, gluten free and non-gmo verified. We also offer Copper Door Coffee Roaster’s espresso blend: a 50/50 blend of pure Columbian coffee and pure Brazilian coffee. This blend ensures freshness and a complex flavor profile that is rich and delicious without any cream or syrup. Stop by today to try it in a hand-made latte or by it’s self. While you’re here, you can also try our delicious Bhakti Chai latte with plenty of spicy ginger and cardamom.
