Fer Cute (and good java to boot)!

Charming building and landscaping... so clever! Friendly staff, good hot coffee, drive-through. Next time I go back I'll try out some food options.

The Silverbean, thusly named for it's existence in a small Airstream trailer, was the only drivethru coffee option in Cortez for years....and remains the BEST!

Just got a double chocolate muffin and Vanilla Italian soda from there and both are delicious! Their burritos are also a must have and the ladies are super nice!

hands down best coffee in cortez. I had a 3/4 full double shot 12oz. Came out piping hot and just as requested within minutes. Glad for the extra shot - just the right body and strength with no bitterness Service friendly to boot

Excellent coffee. Best Breakfast Burrito in town.Specialty bagels. Darling Baristas. Limited menu, which to me shows they make a few things, all delicious. Has survived the rise and fall of numerous coffee shops over the years. Outdoor seating, weather permitting, resplendent with pink flamingos and prayer flags. Drive thru, order through the window at the back of an Airstream, how... More

Great way to start your day. The two young women running the place were great and full life and made the morning experience even better.we ordered two coffees and two breakfast burritos. The coffee was wonderful and the burritos were okay. Just not our type of burrito. I would definitely come back there again and again.

After staying overnight in Cortez, our group of 3 families stopped here for our morning coffee. No, it is not as quick as a chain coffee shop, but it was good and a nice little sitting area to relax and talk with others in our group. Would go there again. Above average taste - better than Starbucks all around.

It is always my goal to stop at the Silver Bean when passing through Cortez, but because their hours are rather limited, I rarely actually get to. Last time through, over Labor Day weekend, we spent the night in Cortez and headed over to the Bean for breakfast. As usual, the coffee and burritos, in addition to the quirky ambiance,... More

This was one of the best cups of coffee I had on our vacation. Established in an old Airstream, this place has coffee, bagels, and killer breakfast burrito. The barista's are super friendly and it is a must see!

We found this while traveling to Cortez for Meza Verde. It is so retro and cute. The ladies running it were super friendly! They make a strong cup of coffee and super smoothies. The breakfast burritos were yummy! Little, but a place you need to go to!
