Gunnison's The Bean

While in Gunnison, CO a few weeks ago I visited their local coffee shop, The Bean, quite a bit. In years past stopping at The Bean on a trip to Gunnison had always been a must, so this year was no different.

The shop is quaint, and definitely feels like a college town coffee shop (the college is just a few blocks away). They have an amazing breakfast and lunch menu, and some of the best espresso in town.

For years I have been captivated by their menu. It's colorful, full of delicious choices for coffee drinks, smoothies, breakfast dishes, and lunch items. It's also slightly overwhelming, and leaves my eyes searching around for minutes for the perfect coffee drink + breakfast/lunch dish.

This particular afternoon I went to The Bean by myself. I got a small iced americano, and sat at a table taking in the all of the sights and sounds surrounding me. Sometimes it's nice to just have a few moments by yourself to sit and reflect.

On another note, we're down to t-minus ten days until my homecoming. I'm so ready to be with my love every day.

What are you most looking forward to?
