awesome – I have been going to bean traders since the day they were open and everything is just as good if not better than the first time. The staff is always friendly and the coffee is always exceptional (even the decaf). Why support a corporate chain when you have something better locally owned.
Delicious coffee every time – When I moved to Durham in 2005, I couldn?t seem to find a coffee shop near my house aside from Starbucks. I actually looked up reviews here on Citysearch and read about Bean Traders. I realized it was right beside the Harris Teeter where I had begun to shop. Anyway, I've since made it my favorite coffee shop around. They have delicious flavored coffee beans used to create their 4 daily brew selections. A lovely young couple owns the shop.
For the holidays they make a Christmas-blend which is different each year. It is delicious, so much so that I can?t do my Christmas shopping without stopping by for a cup beforehand.
The Staff is Awesome – I live near Southpoint and for over a year have drove by this unassuming Bean Trader Coffee House, but to my delight I stopped in. The coffee is good, as good as any others I have been to in the area, but I think the staff is what set it apart. I had decided to purchase some coffee beans and was helped by a knowledgeable gentleman... he knew all about the beans and gave me some wonderful suggestions. I have been back many times due to the service and the coffee been quality. This place has saved me from having to drive to "Southern Season" (which is always so crowded) in Chapel Hill, plus it's less expensive. Thanks for all your help guys.
BEST COFFEE IN TOWN - BEAN TRADERS = FAMILY – Best coffee in town, hands down! When you walk into Bean Traders you feel like you are visiting family that you love and friends that you can't get enough of. Bean Traders is very personable, the coffee house equivalent to "Cheers". Bean Traders is definately not your run of the mill coffee shop, they offer little things like seasonal raffles, fun coffee flavors and chocolate covered esspresso beans! There's no place like Bean Traders!
KILLER coffee KILLER tunes – I love this palce. I am only in it for 30 seconds every morning, but they got great friendly owners and staff! The coffee is always superb. I see the same customers every day at the same time. That tells you somthing. The music is always cool too. Machine Gun, at 7:00 am, Stones , Neil Young, ect. They are wayyyyy better than Starbucks. Try this place out. I have turned everybody at work onto them .
My local favorite – I've been going to my neighborhood Bean Traders for years. Sometimes it's just for a quick coffee on the go, and sometimes, like I'm doing right now, to have a vanilla latte and a bagel and work from my laptop over their wi-fi hotspot. And a little while later I'll take home a pound of organic fair trade coffee, which they roast on site. The place is friendly, comfortable, and reliable. I only wish they'd add orange juice to the menu, so I could get my morning o.j. along with my coffee.
A fully loaded drink menu and a few playful touches give this coffee shop its edge. – In Short
A giant coffee roaster rests in one corner of the shop, while art (all of it for sale), decorates coffee-colored walls. Lining the shelves are dozens of coffee bean-filled glass containers bearing unlikely names like "Grandma's Graham Cracker" and "Mudd Slide," as well as the more expected "French Roast." Though geared mostly for the to-go customer, the shop has a few tables for those who want to sit and stay.
Even the Decaf Rocks – The plain old coffee is smooth and sassy. So many great flavors to choose from, in regular and decaf. Be sure to listen to the great music they play. The owners and their staff are a delight. They make you feel like you're family (in a good way) and never take the snobby Charbucks route. For kids, the cocoa is superb. The sticky buns are beyond decandent with more incredible frosting than the law allows.
Bean Traders Rules – Their coffee is wonderful, they make the most consistently creamy latte I have ever had. Even better though may be their selection of danishes, muffins, and breads.
If you go not only will your food be wonderful but a friendly sales person awaits you as well.
Wish there were more like this! – The best thing I can say about this place is the consistency. I always know I'll be able to find a good cup of coffee, roasted to perfection. Christy and Dave really know what they're doing and really care about the product, which is evident in the continued excellence.
The only caveat; it's so far from my house in Apex :)
