The Wash Park Coffee Market

According to this source, there are 41 independent cafes and 45 Starbucks locations within 5 miles of my zip code, which is 80209. Go to the site to get the full details on each of locations. The names of the independents in my neighborhood are (with repeat mentions of the same name indicating multiple locations and location's I've tried in bold):

The 96 locations sounds like a lot (and there are definitely some missing, such as Avianos, Scooter Joe's, and Daphne's Deli, and essentially all of the drive through expresso kiosks in town), until you consider that a five mile radius of my zip code includes the vast majority of the population of the City and County of Denver, a city of about half a million people, and some people in the surrounding suburbs.
