No boss could refuse you a coffee break this morning -- not when dozens of downtown establishments will be offering all comers a free cup of joe between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. Who'll be pouring it on (and out)? The three homegrown Ink! outposts, as well as the thirteen Starbucks locations downtown (including the one in REI), the Corner Bakery spots in the Pavilions and Tabor, the solo downtown Caribou Coffee, Peet's and Peaberry Coffee outlets, and even the Brown Palace.
Fair warning: Sizes vary, and Starbucks will only be handing out sample-size cups. The locals might be more generous, since this is Downtown Denver Employee Appreciation Week. Find more details here.
