Hearth Baking will open at 2500 Lawrence St Unit 200, Denver, CO 80211 sometime later this month, according to the Denver Post. While the bakery’s website still lists a Summer 2021 opening at a different location, a recent Craigslist ad calling for skilled baristas reads as follows:

“Hearth Baking is looking for passionate coffee folks with solid customer service skills to join our team as we expand into our first retail location in Denver’s RiNo District.”

The ad goes on to thoughtfully describe the young company, explaining, “[w]e are super into baking and super into coffee and we’d love to find others that share our passion. While our offerings are elevated, our vibe is inclusive and welcoming. We believe in conscientiously & transparently sourcing our grains and coffees from people we’re building relationships with. We also mill our own grains and roast all our coffees locally.”

Quinlisk worked as a pastry chef at Moxie Bread Co. in Louisville before starting Hearth. There, he took to absorbing as much knowledge as he could from his counterpart and baking inspirator, Andy Clark – who Quinlisk calls “the main source of Colorado’s baking craze.”

Quinlisk then perfected his learned recipes and began selling products to “local coffee shops and direct customers.” Now, his new venture will allow him to peddle pastries, big loaves of sourdough, bagels, and more from his own brick-and-mortar. 

What Now Denver reached out to founder Matt Quinlisk and was referred to the company’s marketing team for comment. Hearth marketing did not immediately respond.
