Welcome to Steaming Bean Coffee Company in historic downtown Durango, Colorado! We're proud to say that we're Durango's only Netcafe, featuring high-speed Internet access, word-processing programs, printers, and a friendly and knowledgeable staff.
The Netcafe is only one of the many additions and improvements made when Julie Dunn took over ownership in June 1999. Another one is the construction of a "Kid's Corner" (the only one on Main Street!) featuring toys, games, coloring books and a pint-sized table and chairs. "I always thought it would be the most successful coffeehouse we had," says Mick Hill, the company's founder and owner. "Durango's a really cool town and between the college and local professionals there's a ready-made client base just gagging for a quality product at a reasonable price."
Every day we feature four different brews of gourmet coffee, specialty espresso drinks, bagels, pastries, and cookies from local bakers. For lunch we serve homemade soup, wraps (try a chicken curry!), and deli sandwiches. And any time of day is perfect for a frappe or one of our all-fruit smoothies (try enhancing one with an herbal tincture and protein powder).
Besides a wide variety of great coffee and food, we also sell Putumayo World Music CD's, humorous and profound Borealis Press greeting cards, bulk coffee, and a variety of chocolates. If you're vacationing here, look just like a local and use one of our logo travel mugs, wear one of our t-shirts, or carry around all of your Durango souvenirs in one of our tote bags! (But not necessarily all at the same time.)
So whether you're a local, a student, or just passing through, Steaming Bean is the best place in Durango to socialize, work, or to relax and just let your thoughts percolate.
