Guest Barista Days

The Human Bean of Northern Colorado¬†hosts many “Guest Barista Days”.¬† These are where members of the community join the baristas in the stands.¬† This way they can¬†interact directly with customers¬†and also¬†promote their cause. In addition to encouraging customer donations, The Human Bean of Northern Colorado gives 10% of their daily sales to the guest barista. They hosted one of their very own managers¬†as a Guest Barista in support of her recent trip to an orphanage in Haiti on Thursday, June 23, at their¬†location in Evans, Colorado.

The Human Bean of Northern Colorado also encouraged customers to donate basic medical supplies.  They would send to the orphanage in Haiti where their manager visited. A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated! Because of you, The Human Bean of Northern Colorado was able to provide a large donation of medial supplies to support children in Haiti.

Human Bean Sponsorship for Local Bike Race Team

Human Bean Sponsorship for a Team in a Local Bike Race was a fun time for all!

The Human Bean is a proud supporter¬†of the communities we serve. Through fundraisers, donation days and sponsorships, we’ve raised and donated thousands of dollars for countless organizations over the years. ¬†For example, our biggest annual fundraiser, Coffee for A Cure, has raised¬†over $850,000 for community¬†breast health centers since 2002. Learn¬†more about Coffee for A Cure here.

In addition to large-scale fundraisers like Coffee for A Cure, The Human Bean also values supporting smaller¬†local events too, like the “Brewhaus Cross”. The Human Bean supported this event by sponsoring a¬†¬†race team from Southern Oregon’s¬†Marty‚Äôs Cycle Bicycle Shop. The Brewhaus Cross is an exciting 4 day bike race held each September that benefits local Search & Rescue.

The bike races were held over the summer on Thursday the 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th of September at the Bigham Knoll Campus in Jacksonville, Oregon. During and after¬†the race, bikers and supporters enjoyed yummy Brats and beer from Jacksonville’s Schoolhaus Brewhaus Restaurant.¬†Since 2004, this fun local¬†event has raised over $200,000 in cash and equipment for¬†Josephine County Search and Rescue. The Human Bean is proud to support¬†Marty‚Äôs Cycle Bike Shop’s race team in such an awesome community event!

Hot Chocolate & Holiday Lights | The Human Bean

merry & bright

Holiday Lights is a fun event every year!  Nothing says happy holidays more than delicious hot chocolate, sparkling Christmas lights and also supporting the community! This season The Human Bean celebrated all these things and more on Dec. 22nd at Greystone Court during the Access Inc. Hot Chocolate Sponsorship.

Greystone Court is located in Medford, Oregon and every winter the entire neighborhood brightly shines. Each house on the block is gorgeously decorated with countless holiday lights.

About Holiday Lights

hot choc

More than 5,000 cars drive through Greystone Court annually to catch a glimpse of these lights. Access Inc. has made this event one of their greatest annual food drives by encouraging members of the community to bring canned food and cash donations. In support of Access Inc. and to spread holiday cheer, The Human Bean added to the event for the third year in a row by providing free hot chocolate to those attending.

The Human Bean served 20 gallons and over 450 cups of complimentary hot chocolate that evening. Faces of children from ages 1-92 gleamed as they enjoyed the beautiful lights while sipping on warm hot chocolate. Needless to say, we’ll definitely be back next year.

Happy Holidays from one Human Bean to Another!

Human Bean Sponsorship of Concerts in the Park

It may have been 106¬į, but The Human Bean Sponsorship¬†brought The Breeze to Concerts in the Park in Southern Oregon.

human bean sponsorship

The Human Bean sponsorship of¬†Jackson County’s weekly concert series called Concerts in the Park is going through the summer.¬† This concert series is¬†coordinated by Medford Parks & Recreation and is held at the new Medford Commons outdoor space.¬†Last¬†week,¬†they pushed their Human Bean sponsorship even further by providing free iced tea to those attending the concert.¬†They featured¬†their sweet summertime iced tea called The Breeze.¬† Human Bean¬†baristas served overheated concert enthusiasts refreshing green iced tea sweetened with a splash of lemonade and raspberry.

Everyone who tried The Breeze had nothing but great things to say.  The community event  was a huge success overall. The Human Bean takes pride in the active role they play within the community.  They look forward to supporting similar events in the near future.

We have many other delicious and refreshing drinks like this to offer on our Human Bean menu.  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.

Treasure Valley Human Bean Gives Back

For the third year in a row, Treasure Valley Human Bean locations raised funds and awareness.¬† They did so for a local and worthy children’s cause¬†called the¬†Jayden DeLuca Foundation!

treasure valley human beanThe Cause

The Jayden DeLuca Foundation was established in 2008 in honor of Jayden Riley DeLuca.  Jayden passed away due to a cardiac condition when she was 2 1/2 years old. Her parents, Jeremy and Karalie Deluca, believe that Jayden made such a positive impact on the world.  The believe it is only fitting that The Jayden DeLuca Foundation do the same in her honor.

The foundation looks to promote awareness of cardiac diseases and also to aide in further scientific and medical research of pediatric heart conditions. They feel there needs to be more research and more time devoted to helping those who face this problem.

Sadly, the necessary technology that could have saved Jayden DeLuca didn’t exist when she needed it. Their hope is that soon, pediatric cardiac conditions will be completely manageable.  Or will be a thing of the past altogether.

On Friday, June 26th, all 5 Human Bean locations in the Treasure Valley Human Bean region donated 30% of their daily SALES (not just proceeds).  The Jayden DeLuca Foundation was the recipient of this donation. The donations raised by this event will provide support and technological progress in the development of pediatric heart conditions. Thank you to all who supported Jayden DeLuca Foundation by generously donating or purchasing a tasty beverage on June 26th. With your support, The Treasure Valley Human Bean raised $3,100 for the Jayden DeLuca Foundation.

4th Annual Food Drive

The Human Bean held their fourth annual food drive on Friday, August 22nd.  They were overjoyed by community and customer support. Along with all the smiles, The Human Bean customers enjoyed drink discounts.  Plus they had a chance to win college football tickets with their donations during the one-day event. All food donations were kept local and benefited food banks in each community.

The Human Bean believes that no one should ever go hungry, no matter the time of year. ‚ÄúWe choose to hold our annual food drive in mid-summer each year.¬† This¬†is when food donations reach their annual lows,‚ÄĚ said Jackie McGrath of The Human Bean. ‚ÄúThere are many food drives during the winter holidays.¬†¬†But summer is when supplies run low and the need is high.‚ÄĚ

A huge thank you again to everyone for supporting our annual Food Drive and making it a success. Your generous donations are making a difference in feeding the hungry in your community. Thank you!

 

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.  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 also 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 66 locations.  This is in ten states, 53 of those being franchised locations and 13 being corporate locations. We expect to continue this growth through approved franchisees that share the same determination as well as commitment to our goals for this exceptional brand.

Holiday Cheer | The Human Bean

This holiday season The Human Bean served up holiday cheer. Baristas participated in the Annual Greystone Court/Access can food drive in Medford, Oregon. The night before Christmas eve we served 20 gallons of chocolate milk. Thanks to Umpqua Dairy for helping to provide the milk. We were able to serve Hot Cocoa to those donating to the cause. Families and friends checked out the brightly decorated street, our baristas warmed their hearts and bellies with holiday cheer! Check out pictures of the event below.

Holiday Lights Light the Way to Giving

Greystone Court has long held the tradition of lighting the way to community giving. Canned goods are donated to our local community while everyone enjoys the lights. Consequently everyone helps feed the hungry in the community. Holiday spirit is felt throughout the court!

Access is a local organization that provides food, housing, warmth and essential services to low income individuals and families. Residents in Jackson County have been served by Access since 1976.

Greystone Court

Greystone is not the only event that The Human Bean and Access work together. Since 2010 The Human Bean has held an annual food drive that benefits Access. The event is held in August because this is typically the time of year that donations are at the lowest point.
