More Than Just Great Coffee…

Since the launch of our first location over 15 years ago, The Human Bean has experienced purposeful growth and an unwavering devotion to developing the best drive-thru espresso brand. Recognized for our efforts and success, The Human Bean has been honored with many awards over the years. Throughout this blog, I will share The Human Bean’s local to nationwide recognition.Slide1History
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 established a reputation for having friendly and experienced baristas 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 51 locations in eight states, 38 of those being franchised locations. We expect to continue this growth through approved franchisees that share the same determination and commitment to our goals for this exceptional brand.

Nationally Acclaimed
