Denver-based Dazbog Coffee has delivered a taste of Russia and Colorado through its eye-catching packaging, branding, small-batch roasting and blending of hand-selected coffee from around the globe. Leonid and Anatoly Yuffa immigrated to The Mile High City from St. Petersburg, Russia with their family in 1979 and later combined their skill sets and business savvy to launch Dazbog Coffee in 1996. Today, the company has more than 30 coffee shops across Colorado and Wyoming and a product line with names like KGBlend and White Nights Espresso.
A Gift Inside began in 2009 as an online gift shop known as Golden State Fruit. It then expanded to the East Coast in 2013 and set up shop in a 40,000-square-foot production facility located in the heart of Lancaster County. After purchasing an artisan confections company in 2015, A Gift Inside added a full-service chocolate kitchen to both of its facilities, where many chocolates are handcrafted.
