This business is a well known and loved community treasure where regular customers and visitors alike congregate to socialize, enjoy great coffee and, yes, find new books to enjoy.
Over its 47-year history the business has built a place in the life of the town and enjoys the patronage of long-time customers who have followed the business as it has grown and become a cultural center of gravity in Telluride.
The business was founded in 1974. Currently books & coffee operate as two businesses but are being offered combined which creates efficiencies and is how the business began. The current owners purchased the businesses separately in 2010.
The business model is based on a high level of service, curated book selection, exceptional coffee, a regular calendar of events, and participation in the community.
