Bean Traders opened its doors September 1, 2000 with the mission of being a local roaster/coffee shop that uses the highest grade beans available and serves fresh baked pastries. We also strive to give our customers not only the best product made with expertise, but a great experience with our friendly baristas as well. We roast all of our coffee right here in Durham, NC and still use the highest grade available. Our baked goods and pastries come from a variety of local bakers who use natural ingredients and deliver fresh daily. Our expert baristas are fully trained and tested before stepping behind the espresso machine. Our milk is delivered from Jackson Dairy Farm in Dunn, NC...an organic free-range local farm.
