Bean Traders

It may be located in a strip mall, but don’t let that fool you. It’s surprisingly large inside with plenty of seating and they have some of the funkiest decor in Durham.

We love that they roast their own beans and have such an interesting menu with drinks like Phunky Monkey, Chocolate Habanero, and Dirty Hippie. If you just want an americano, they do that to perfection as well!

The staff is always wonderful and willing to answer any questions I have about their unique drinks. The prices are affordable. Their house made syrups make all the difference in their self roasted coffee brand.

The first time you come you may question it being in a strip mall. Who has good coffee in a strip mall? Yep, Bean Traders does. The space is surprisingly large and there are plenty of outlets to plug in.
