Convivio is the brainchild of Kristin Lacy and Vivi Lemus – who brought their love of hospitality, culturally-centered food and drink, community, and Guatemala to Denver. This café is a beautiful space located in the Columbia Heights neighborhood that’s perfect for those looking for a unique take on the coffee shop experience. True to their namesake, Convivio is the Spanish word used to describe “a get together where all are invited”. 

With a lively atmosphere, friendly faces, and aesthetically pleasing sights and smells – it’s easy to see what makes it so special.

Aside for the vibey atmosphere Convivio is serving up Guatemalan-inspired drinks and eats that are an incredibly refreshing addition to Denver’s already stacked coffee scene. While we may be slightly obsessed with their menu some notable highlights include:

  • Latte con Sabor (flavored lattes)
  • Cafecito
  • Antojitos
  • Rosa de Jamaica
  • Alfajores

If you need us we’ll be dreaming about their burrito Chapín.


As if that wasn’t enough to get you in the door, we really admire Convivio’s sustainable approach.

Their coffee is sourced via short supply chains that help keep more profits with the Central American producers that grow, roast, and harvest the coffee and tea they use in their phenomenal drinks. So not only are their drinks delicious but the proceeds also go to benefit the wonderful artesanos (artisans) that make it all possible.
