Straight up espresso at Amante.
It feels like a modern Italian, perhaps Milan style high-end Café with a Boulder, dare I say, progressive streak. I could care less about the Boulder vibe of a Mac on every café table, a piercing in every nose, and a tattoo on every throat; they make really good espresso here. The La Marzocco machine is impeccably clean, no cardboard cups, and beautiful crema in every cup. I come to this shop each and every time I’m in Denver and I know why, damn good espresso.
