Coffee expert Muluye Hailemariam originally planned to open Kabod Coffee at Denver International Airport's Great Hall, but with construction delays preventing businesses from opening, she changed flight plans and landed at Northfield Stapleton instead. Kabod is now serving coffee imported straight from independently owned Ethiopian coffee farms.
In the Baker neighborhood, La Loteria, which just opened at the end of August at 42 South Broadway, had initially planned to serve lunch and dinner. Lunch was a little slow in coming, but the taqueria is now in full swing, with a big menu of tacos, tortas and other Mexican street fare from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.
