The Human Bean is a Favorite Place to get Coffee

And in case you don’t know…here is just a little bit about The Human Bean.
With a passion for creating happy people and our love of coffee, we opened our first drive-thru espresso stand in Ashland Oregon in 1998. The demand for convenient, quality coffee & espresso grew and soon after opening our original location in Ashland, we expanded to surrounding cities in Southern Oregon. The Human Bean quickly became a favorite place to get coffee because of our friendly and experienced baristas (just like Justine!) and offering the highest quality ingredients.

Our commitment to developing the best drive-thru espresso led us to franchising The Human Bean’s brand and system in 2002. We are proud to announce that The Human Bean has expanded to 65 locations in nine states. We expect to continue this growth through approved franchisees that share the same determination and commitment to our goals for this exceptional brand.

Greeting customers using headsets rather than face-to-face interaction was unfamiliar.
