Coffee for a Cure 2017

coffee for a cure

Our 12th annual breast cancer fundraising event, Coffee for a Cure, will be held on Friday, October 20th.  All proceeds on this day from all of our 69 locations in 11 states will be donated to local breast cancer agencies.  This has become a hugely successful and effective event for us and we are so happy that we are able to help make a difference in the fight against breast cancer!

Coffee for a Cure – The Impact

In Oregon alone, between Providence Foundation and Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center we have helped fund approximately 1600 mammograms or about 145 per year.  This is along with follow-up care and ongoing patient support.

Last year was our 11th annual Coffee for a Cure event and we raised $202,448.89 for a total of $1,055,044.89 to date!

Coffee for a Cure – The Story

When hurricane Katrina hit we had a donation day to help support the Red Cross. The following year we decided we wanted to make our donation day an annual event.  We wanted to help each of our own communities by doing so. Therefore each location donates to their local community. After talking to people we found out Oregon and Washington had the highest rates of breast cancer in the country (at the time). Everyone we knew had someone in their lives that had been affected by breast cancer. So we thought it was a cause that really could help people in our communities.

We work directly with local foundations.  They allocate the funds to help the patients that need help the most; uninsured or under-insured. Since starting Coffee for a Cure 12 years ago we have lost a barista, a franchise owner, family and friends. We are happy to say that since starting the donation day how our funds are used is beginning to change. More people are insured, getting early detection and surviving the disease. We now support patients with expenses while going through treatment.  We also help with a lot more preventive scans for early detection and education.

Truly it is the core of what The Human Bean is about, giving back and supporting our own communities.

Human Bean Food Drive 2017

The Human Bean Food Drive was held on Friday, August 25th.  This was our 8th annual event.  Human Bean customers who participated in the one-day event received drink discounts in exchange for food donations.  Also, in Oregon, they received a chance to win Ducks or Beavers football tickets if they donated 3 items or more.

human bean food drive

With the majority of food drives held during the winter months, many local food banks run lowest on food supplies during the summer.  The Human Bean recognizes this need and believes that everyone deserves a nutritious meal, no matter what time of year.  Therefore we choose to run our annual event during the summer months as a way to give back to our local communities when most needed.

Each participating Human Bean location chose a local food bank to support.  In Southern Oregon, food donations went to Access.  In Northern Oregon, food donations went to Oregon Food Bank as well as FISH Emergency Services in Newberg and a local church food bank in Canby.  Between all of the 13 corporate Oregon locations over a thousand pounds of food was donated!

Human Bean Food Drive Results

Kyle Hummel with Oregon Food Bank reported back after the Human Bean Food Drive, “So the grand total was 187 pounds which will allow us to provide 159 meals to the community!  Or help out 159 of our neighbors in need!  Pretty awesome!  I hope you are as proud of those numbers as we are; to be able to support almost 160 people is wonderful!”  This was from only 3 locations in Northern Oregon and yes, we are very proud of these numbers!

The Human Bean has 68 locations in 11 states so you can imagine the cumulative impact we were able to make.

Human Bean Food Drive Football Winners

The winners of the Oregon football tickets were chosen randomly after the drive was completed.  Donors who entered were able to specify which team tickets they would like to win.  Carol Snider of Eugene won tickets to the Beavers vs. Stanford game and Kristin Davidson of Grants Pass won tickets to the Ducks vs. Arizona Wildcats game.  Congratulations to them both!

Cold Brew – What exactly is it?

Cold Brew is quite the buzz word these days.  You’ve probably tried it.  And if you have, you probably love it.  But what exactly is it?  And  how is it made?  Here’s everything you need to know about Cold Brew!

!cold brew

It’s Brewed in Cold Water

Hence the name.  Cold brew coffee is actually steeped in room temperature or chilled water and never touches hot water.  This causes a much slower flavor extraction which contributes to the smooth flavor of cold brew coffee.

It Takes at Least 12 Hours to Make

Cold brew coffee is made by steeping coarse ground coffee in large paper coffee filters in water for 12-18 hours and then diluted to taste with water.  We make fresh batches over night so they are ready to be served each morning!

It’s HandCrafted

You won’t find our cold brew in a can.  It’s handcrafted by our own baristas to ensure it’s fresh!  That’s why there is limited availability based on what we make each day.  Come get it while it’s hot!  Errr….cold, we mean.

It’s not the same as Iced Coffee

Iced coffee is essentially normally brewed coffee that is chilled and then poured over ice.  It still has the same flavor as hot coffee and might taste more acidic or even bitter compared to cold brew coffee.

Cold Brew can be Customized

You can add flavored syrups or chocolate or caramel to cold brew.  It’s rich smooth flavor tastes great with vanilla, coconut or hazelnut flavors.  You can also add dairy or dairy alternatives if you prefer!

So now that you know what it is, then you have no reason not to try it!   You’ll be pleasantly surprised.  Stop by one of our many locations today!  We think you’ll have a new favorite craving!
