Cristos Coffee x Clean Your Dirty Face drink and coupon

Food-Related Events and Announcements: July 12, 2024

Happy Friday, foodies! July is Indie Retailer Month and that calls for a celebration of downtown’s locally-owned and operated businesses (fun fact: locally owned / operated restaurants make up over 90% of downtown Boulder). Remember to dine locally, tip your restaurant / cafe workers appropriately and leave positive reviews at your favorite spots. ~Happy dining! ~

A great example of local love is Cristos Coffee’s newest July drink addition inspired by their friendly neighborhood facial spa. Try the Clean Your Dirty Face - an iced red raspberry tea topped with raspberry cold foam (pictured above). This summer sip is paired with a special coupon to Clean Your Dirty Face - get yours today!
