A fire destroyed Boyer’s Coffee roasting plant and cafe in Adams County Tuesday afternoon.
The fire sent a plume of black smoke into the sky and responding firefighters with Adams County Fire Rescue took defensive measures fighting the blaze, at 7295 Washington Street, because of the fire’s intensity, Adams County Fire said on Twitter.
There was no one in the building, and no firefighters were injured.
Boyer’s Coffee, owned by brothers Douglass and Jason Barrow, has been a Denver staple since 1965, with a footprint in over 1,400 stores. The company also sells its Rockies Roast at Coors Field.
Jordan Blakesley, a company spokeswoman, told The Denver Post, “We’re still assessing the damages, but are happy to report that no employees were injured in the fire. As a local, family-owned roaster, that’s our number one priority at this moment. We’ll share more as additional information becomes available.”
Fire Investigators remained on scene Tuesday afternoon. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Washington Street is closed from East 70th Avenue to East 79th Avenue, and traffic is being diverted to Broadway or York Street.
