On Thursday 13 January, minority and women-owned Kabod Coffee started serving “locally roasted, single-source Ethiopian coffee, Colorado baked goods, and grab-and-go food,” according to a news release.
“We know our passengers and employees enjoy coffee day and night and Kabod Coffee has made a commitment to operate 24 hours a day, which is remarkable given the challenges businesses are experiencing today,” airport CEO Phil Washington said in the release.
Kabod Coffee is owned by an Ethiopian woman, Muluye Hailemariam, who joined DIA’s concessions community, kiosk program and the Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program in 2011.
“Coffee is culture in Ethiopia,” said Muluye . “I am honored to bring my heritage and the finest unblended organic coffee to the thousands of daily travelers through DEN.”
Kabod joins Caribou Coffee, which opened last month, the first concession built as part of phase one of the Great Hall renovations. It serves “handcrafted beverages including hot and iced teas, nitro cold brew coffee on tap, ice cream and all-day food items,” according to the release.
Kabod Coffee Roasters is an organic and fair-trade roaster based in Denver, Colorado, USA.
