Human Bean Remodel for Original Ashland Location


THE HUMAN BEAN REMODEL IN ASHLAND, OR IS AN INVESTMENT TO BETTER SERVE CUSTOMERS


The Human Bean team is hard at work renovating drive-thru locations in Jackson County.  They hope to improve operations, visual curb appeal and also better serve coffee lovers in the Rogue Valley!

The first location to receive a complete Human Bean remodel is the original coffee stand that started it all back in 1998 in Ashland, Oregon. The Human Bean of Ashland paved the way for The Human Bean brand.  Most importantly it established the products, operations and customer service we all know and love today.

To see how we construct a new Human Bean remodel, view our video.

The new Ashland Human Bean remodel location was constructed with a prefab structure built in a nearby city and then moved by truck to the location.  It features a stone covered foundation, warm coffee & mocha colors and light fixtures decorated with The Human Bean’s steaming coffee cup icon. Next time you’re in the Ashland area, make sure to check-out the beautiful new building off Highway 99!

Let us know what you think of the changes on our Jackson County Facebook page. We’d love your feedback! Also, stay-tuned for the next complete remodel- The Human Bean off Biddle Rd. by Dairy Queen in Medford is next!

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’s 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’s Cycle Bike Shop’s race team in such an awesome community event!
