- Alex Baum
Locals may know Baum from his time as the front-of-house manager at Wild Goose Meeting House, from its opening through 2015, after which he moved to Boulder to open cafés with a company called Alpine Modern. In 2017, he decided to move back and start Blank after he and wife Abigail, a co-owner at Loyal Coffee, had their first child.
Garrett runs a small company called Congruent Services; he installs and services espresso equipment along the Front Range for clients including Alpine Modern. He and Baum have been friends for some time now.

“I’ve been in the industry so long that I’m kind of over the pretentiousness of coffee,” says Baum. “Our whole goal is to serve specialty coffee in a good way.”
Blank will also offer breakfast and fast-service bites. House-made donuts will range from standard glazed and cinnamon-sugar to more adventurous flavors — current staff favorites from early tastings are the peach-jalapeño and the strawberry lemonade. They’ll also offer “torpedo” baguette sandwiches, grain and veggie bowls, and toasts, some with sous vide eggs.
