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.

Had breakfast burritos and coffee for breakfast at Silver Bean. Friendly staff, good coffee, and decent burritos, but everything was a bit overpriced. Still better than a Starbucks or hotel coffee.

Unique coffee spot on west end of town. You can order inside or drive-thru. Nice outside sitting area.

Cute concept - I love Airstreams so you had me there. The owner was visiting (from Chicago he said). The barista was not good tho. Not sure if she was nervous because of the owner but my cappuccino was a small (I ordered a medium) and was mostly foamy milk (very little coffee). Give it a try. I think the... More

We drove past the Silver Bean and were immediately drawn to the great decor and patio seating outdoors. It's at the wet end of downtown, and even though it's an Airstream trailer, there is a full array of drinks and breakfast foods (we were there early in the morning). We purchased some of their coffee beans as well.

What a great little place to start your day! Fabulous coffee and tea choices, as well as fresh pastries and and even breakfast burritos! They even offer a drive-through service, but since we were on motorcycles, did not choose this option :-)

We first stopped here 20 years ago. The kitsch of espresso from an Airstream was just too good to resist. And The Silver Bean has proven irresistible every time we're close to Cortez. Service is good and friendly. And the coffee is superb!

Thank sfp4
