A vintage airstream serving the second best coffee in the southwest. Great stuff. I got a vanilla Breve. Highly recommend. Stop by and say hi to Steve.

I thought the trailer was quaint, but the chai tasted like water with cinnamon. Not good at all. Our friends had coffee and said it was good.

This little coffee shop is in a remodeled airstream camper. I found it to be a super unique awesome place, the barista was very nice and attentive, the coffee and breakfast burritos were absolutely amazing! Definitely a hidden gem!

Just got charged $3.75 for 3 shots over ice - more than $1 over for the same drink at other coffee shops in Cortez.

Every time we are through Cortez, Colorado, we make it a point to stop at the Silver Bean. I don't drink coffee, but my wife is quite a coffee connoisseur (so she tells me!), and she loved the offerings at Silver Bean. This time to the area, we drove back 30 miles or so just so we could visit again...... More

Just cruising through Cortez when we spotted this Airstream coffee shop on the north side of the main town drag. As Airstream owner this really peaked our interest and we decided to indulge in an iced Americano and an iced Capuchino since it was just after lunch. I was delighted to see the rear window of the camper had been... More

Drive up is a plus for us, since we usually have dogs in the car and don't like to leave them to go inside for coffee.

This darling silver Airstream is a fully functioning espresso and coffee stop with a delightful outdoor seating area. The coffe is just the best. I wish it was open on Sundays because it would become my routine way to start the week. It is a little bit on the edge of town so those headed to Utah or to McElmo... More

Hard to beat a fifty cent shot of espresso. I was so excited I got a double the second time. Plus, it's a vintage Airstream.

The Silver Bean is just off Main Street in Cortez but it is, in a way, in a world of its own. The burritos are top-notch and the espresso is excellent. We made two visits and had interesting chats with the barista, if you want to call her that. A fun place with big sky above the Airstream.
