Day in the Life


A quiet early morning. Opening the door to a clean, fresh shop; everything in it’s place. Click on the lights, turn on the soft indie electro tunes. Weigh and grind fresh coffee and brew the first pot. As the world is taking their time to wake up, you pour yourself a mug and watch the sunrise spill an orange-pink over the Rocky Mountains right into our very shop. Here’s a little of what that looks like in this SONDER Day...

Series three features a sunny lazy Sunday afternoon. Colorado’s January sunshine streams into our windows as groups of friends take the time to slowly sip their drinks over casual convos, in between open books and open lap tops.

What a year! Just in these past twelve months you’ve seen us find a location and sign a coffee shop lease, then spend all summer designing and building out what is now SONDER Coffee & Tea. Our lives have forever changed and this year will never be forgotten. It’s definitely a cause worthy of celebration. Our Christmastime decor was up for the season, but New Years Eve it all came down to get ready for 2017. We love a...
