Right down the road from La Mesa RV Park is an incredibly unique little business. The Silver Bean.
If you’re a hardcore Airstream fan like I am, you love seeing Airstreams everywhere you go. In the case of the Silver Bean, we’re talking about a 1969 Airstream that’s been converted into a very cool coffee shop!
Entering the bean is pretty cool. A little counter with two stools, and a little couch in the front for when you want to kick back. Great greeting too! The mid-section to the back of the Bean is the work area, and the back window? Yeah, that’s for drive through customers. No kidding, they’ve got a drive through.
Behind the main Silver Bean is a smaller vintage Airstream. It’s used for events at other locations. Basically, it’s a baby bean. So cute!
I’m now back at the Airstream with a hot decaf writing this post. Back in 2006 I visited the Bean, and I’m really happy to say they’re still in business today! If you’re passing through Cortez or visiting for a while make sure to stop in and say hi.
P.S. I would have put a link to the Silver Bean’s website….but unfortunately I could find no website for them. Bummer. Looks like they might need someone to help them out with that. 🙂
