Copper Door Coffee Featured in Westword

by Danielle Krolewicz: October 18,2017

Hannah Ulbrich has always felt at home in coffeehouses, which is why she now owns two.

Copper Door Coffee Roasters began in 2006 solely as a roaster. In 2014, Ulbrich purchased the business and took over the roasting.

Idaho Springs BBQ joint touches down in Denver

When it came time to expand out of Idaho Springs, a 10-year-old barbecue shop scoured Denver for three years before settling on a development with the perfect name.

Smokin Yard’s BBQ will open in September at the corner of West First Avenue and South Santa Fe Drive in a project called – appropriately enough – The Yard.

The barbecue joint recently took out a SBA loan for $620,000 to fund the new store, and borrowed $500,000 to switch from renting to owning its Idaho Springs store.

“We provide the best food and service, better than any of the other barbecue restaurants in town,” co-owner Ian Yard said, “based on what I’ve tried and what guests have told us.”

The Idaho Springs location sells 150 pounds of beef brisket every weekend. The fan favorite meat comes on a sandwich with a side for $10.
Smokin Yard’s was started a decade ago by Yard’s dad and brother, Alan and Scott. Originally from Texas, the Yard family moved to Colorado 30 years ago. Ian joined the business five years ago, and he and his wife Chris will run the new Denver location.
