Something Silver is Brewing


At first it was just a coffee roasting operation, but now that Shannon's ski career is done, she's going all in with a new coffee shop, conveniently located right on the way to the Cottonwoods!

Something’s brewing again for entrepreneur and two-time Olympic medalist Shannon Bahrke Happe. The Lake Tahoe native, who now calls Salt Lake City home, is expanding her three-year-old Silver Bean Coffee company, opening a flagship retail coffee shop at the bottom of Big Cottonwood Canyon.

A grand opening celebration is planned for Friday (Nov. 19) featuring Bahrke and other Olympians and U.S. Ski Team athletes in the morning, along with $1 drip coffee all day long.

Silver Bean Coffee is located at 6556 S. Big Cottonwood Canyon Road (right off freeway exit 6 on I-215).
