Procession Coffee has been slinging drinks in the Denver area for close to two years now. In that time, they’ve developed a bit of a cult following, thanks in small part to their “get a Procession logo tattoo and receive free drinks for life” program. (The number of wilted-flower-in-broken-vase tattoos on their Instagram goes to show how beloved Procession has become in a short amount of time.)
Building off their popularity, the coffee company has opened their second cafe in as many years, this one in the Highlands area of Denver. Brand-forward and indebted to a punk ethos, Procession is bringing their strong identity to a residential part of the city. There goes the neighborhood, in the best way possible.
As told to Sprudge by Joshua Bosarge.
For those who aren’t familiar, will you tell us about your company?
Procession is a queer-owned and -operated shop focused on branding, identity, and our lives in the punk/DIY world.
Can you tell us a bit about the new space?
The new space is nestled in the Highlands residential neighborhood of Denver.
Any machines, coffees, special equipment lined up?
We work off of a La Marzocco GS3, and offer a large range of pour-over options.
How is your project considering sustainability?
We are looking into compost options, but not much more (would love that though).
What’s your hopeful target opening date/month?
End of August 2023
Are you working with craftspeople, architects, and/or creatives that you’d like to mention?
We are totally DIY, and working on this project ourselves. (Would love to one day!)
