This place is so cute with great coffee! The baristas are very friendly and treat everyone like regular customers! Make sure you have a latte! They have a pay it forward wall for those that can't afford it or forgot their money.

Love this outdoor spot for coffee in Telluride. Just walk right up and place your order. And if you're short on change, you can get a free cup of coffee by using one of the pre-paid slips of paper taped to the window. Some visitors buy extra cups and donate them to Coffee Cowboy, and you are welcome to borrow... More

The coffee is so so so good. No wonder it always has a lineup. Good fast service, delish coffee, worth the time to search it out.

Ok u can miss it if u aren't looking for a horse trailer that serves coffee so... Squeeze ur decaffeinated eyes open and (likely) look for the fast moving line of folks casually forming off of an open courtyard. Coffee is great, they push it out fast, they have other goodies as well to grab but we were always liquid.... More

My husband had cappuccino here, and I had a chai latte (spicy version) and later, iced tea. We both thought it was the best option for coffee and tea in Telluride and enjoyed the outdoor seating.

I saw the reviews and thought that I had stop by for coffee. Well, I had visions of sitting is a quaint coffee shop and relaxing. The "shop" itself is just a very small building that only holds the baristas although there is outdoor seating (may be chilly in the winter) Overall it serves great coffee and the baristas were...

If you are looking for your hot Java before 8am on Sunday the Coffee Cowboy has your back. Single or double shot lattes, drip coffee and some delicious baked goods. The Cranberry flaxseed cookie was my favorite! Friendly staff, too. If you're staying in town for a while, get a coffee punch card!

I'll have to try something else next time but the macchiato tasted too burnt (and burnt my tongue). They were fairly busy with a decent flow of customers, so I'm sure they have some other good coffee choices.
