Durango Joes now has 11 different locations between Durango, Aztec, and Farmington. The chain was started by a Durango couple in 2004 who sought out serving legendary coffee in a “community first” style. The baristas whip up favorites such as the Honey Bear, Avalanche, and Pombomb. They also serve homemade baked goods, sandwiches, and salads. Read more about this blooming chain here: https://durangojoes.com
