Comment from Owner of Spin

Hi, neighbors.

Kirk Bethel, owner of Spin, recently posted a comment on our original post about the closing of Spin.  I wanted to share it with you, in case you do not come across it otherwise.

Thanks for reaching out to the neighborhood, Kirk.

It’s been a couple of months and I so wish we could have said good-bye to all of our customers and friends on the Avenue. It was a very hard decision and the sudden closing was the only option we had. On behalf of my family, I want to thank everyone who supported us in our efforts to keep things going.

Sadly, we just couldn’t continue to lose money much less put money into improvements. With a 45% increase in green coffee prices in 8 months, our decision was unavoidable. Final nail, so to speak.

I’m excited for the folks at Boulder Coffee Company who are remodeling and will open in 5 or 6 weeks. I wish them well and hope everyone will support the new shop. Of course it won’t be Spin Coffee Roasters coffee but it will be better than any chain coffee could even hope for.

Thank you all for your kind words.
