3 Tips to A Guilt-Free Drink

Happy 2016 fellow coffee lovers! Searching for a beverage you can feel good about drinking? Well we’re happy to say, Your Search is Over at The Human Bean.

Whether you are counting calories or simply trying to live a healthier lifestyle in 2016, this post will expand your coffee knowledge and give you the power when ordering your favorite drinks at The Human Bean. We offer almost limitless options on our menu. From dairy-free alternatives to protein powder, we are always striving to provide the highest quality ingredients for our customers. While all these choices are great, they can be a bit overwhelming. That’s why we created this post to guide you when ordering your next drink at The Human Bean.

Here are THREE simple tips to turning your favorite drink into one that satisfies your coffee cravings without the guilt!

1.)    Add a Scoop of Protein Powder! 

You asked and we delivered! We now offer a vanilla protein powder at most of our locations. You can enjoy this new product as a Granita (w/ espresso) or as a Smoothie (w/out espresso). You can also add a scoop of protein to any of your current favorite blended drinks! With 20 grams of protein per scoop and an optimal amino acid profile, our protein powder drinks will keep you full and focused all day!

Barista Tip: Add a half scoop of protein to your favorite fruit smoothie flavor for the perfect afternoon snack!

2.)    Fat-free or dairy-free anyone?

Substituting your favorite drink with a fat-free dairy or dairy-free alternative can cut you’re your calories in HALF! Swapping chocolate milk for non-fat milk in your mocha will reduce the calories and eliminate the fat, while still satisfying your coffee and chocolate craving.

Dairy-free alternatives can also be a great option for creating a health conscious coffee beverage. At The Human Bean, we offer soy, almond and coconut milk at most of our locations. These dairy-free alternatives are low in fat and calories, contain no cholesterol and have up to 50% more calcium than dairy milk. Try soy, almond or coconut milk in your next coffee!

3.)   Add a shot? Why not!

If you enjoy a strong coffee flavor, this is the trick for you! Espresso contains 0 calories and can cut anywhere from 15 to 50 calories from your drink. This trick works because the extra espresso replaces the higher calorie dairy or dairy substitute products. On your next drink, simply ask for an extra shot and you’ve got yourself a coffee with fewer calories and more of your favorite coffee flavor.

If too much caffeine is a concern of yours, ask your barista for an extra decaf shot of espresso.

You now hold three simple tips and tricks to creating a delicious, yet healthier coffee option. Don’t be afraid to experiment with your new coffee knowledge. Remember, you can have your coffee and drink it guilt-free at The Human Bean.

Human Bean Opens on SOU Campus

20151027_124530_resized
The halls at Southern Oregon University buzzed last Tuesday, Oct. 27th with one exciting message; The Human Bean is celebrating their grand opening with FREE signature drinks!
New this fall 2015, The Human Bean opened their very first walk-in only location connected to the Hannon Library at Southern Oregon University.
SOU Dining teamed up with The Human Bean to bring more beverage options to campus. In addition, The Human Bean’s corporate responsibility, coffee sourcing program and overall presence and history in Jackson County aligned with their own.
Like the SOU Raiders, The Human Bean calls Southern Oregon home. Back in 1998, The Human Bean opened their very first location in Ashland, Oregon off I-5 Exit 19. Since then, The Human Bean has served as a proud supporter of the community giving back through fundraisers, donation days and sponsorships. Since 1998, The Human Bean has expanded to surrounding cities and states and now consists of 58 corporate and franchised locations across 8 states. The Human Bean’s corporate headquarters resides just 15 miles North of SOU in Medford, Oregon. For more information about franchising, visit The Human Bean’s Franchise Page.

On the day of the Grand Opening, The Human Bean celebrated with their customers by offering complimentary signature drinks from 11-3 pm. Excited SOU students, staff and guests chose from Human Bean favorites like the Snowy mocha, infused RockStars and real fruit smoothies.
The team of SOU baristas worked hard with big smiles on their faces on the day of the grand opening. They quickly crafted hundreds of drinks for eager customers non-stop for 4 hours.

SOU Dining and The Human Bean are excited by the initial success and future potential of this SOU campus location. This natural partnership has everyone on campus enjoying quality, hand crafted beverages.

Cheers to Years of Coffee & Community

There’s so much to be excited about this summer at The Human Bean! Many of our Human Bean locations are celebrating business anniversaries by giving back to the most important aspect of their business, the customers they serve of course!

grants pass

All three Grants Pass, Oregon locations celebrated their second year of ownership on July 1st. Promoting their anniversary as Customer Appreciation Day, The Human Bean of Grants Pass was beyond excited to recognize their loyal customers and the feeling was mutual. Grants Pass customers were happy to celebrate this day with their favorite baristas around. A regular customer from Grants Pass  commented on Facebook, “Thanks for the great service and for always remembering my drink order even before I get there!” Congratulations on the anniversary Grants Pass!

Also to celebrate noteworthy anniversaries this summer is The Human Bean of Lake Havasu City, Arizona and The Human Bean of Seaside, Oregon. The northern Lake Havasu City location is thankful for 10 great years and can’t wait to celebrate such a milestone with their recently opened 2nd location on the south-side of town.

The Human Bean of Seaside celebrates 8 wonderful years mid August this year. Seaside franchisees couldn’t be prouder of the community involvement they’ve established in Seaside and are bringing their same lively spirit to their Warrenton location which opened last October. “We try to separate ourselves by really standing out as a supporter of the community,” said Seaside franchisee. Another successful year in business proves their efforts are appreciated, congratulations Seaside!

Concerts in the Park Sponsorship

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

The Human Bean is a proud sponsor of Jackson County’s weekly concert series called Concerts in the Park coordinated by Medford Parks & Recreation. Last week, they pushed their sponsorship even further by providing free iced tea to those attending the concert. Featuring their sweet summertime iced tea called The Breeze, HB 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 and the community event  was a huge success overall. The Human Bean takes pride in the active role they play within the community and they look forward to supporting similar events in the near future.

New Caldwell Location is Turning Heads

The Human Bean of Treasure Valley introduces a 4th stand in Caldwell, Idaho this month. Since their grand opening on July 10th, the Caldwell community has been enjoying The Human Bean’s delicious drinks, friendly atmosphere and head turning building design.

Caldwell is a western city in Idaho with almost 50,000 residents, all of whom can appreciate a good cup of coffee. Human Bean franchisee, Alex Furioso, said, “Caldwell is an awesome growing city. They have done nothing but welcome us with open arms.” The new Caldwell location demonstrates The Human Bean’s mission of delivering quality products with exceptional customer service. “We are happy to be here, and happy to give them a great product,” said Alex.

Along with offering quality products and great service, the Human Bean of Caldwell’s eye catching curb appeal is unique from the typical Human Bean location. “We wanted a building design that catches people’s attention,” said Alex, “A design that makes them stop and look because it has never been done before.” With recycled barn wood and copper pitched roofs as inspiration, the Human Bean of Caldwell stands out and demands a double-take from the street.

This is the Furioso’s 4th Human Bean location with several more in various stages of development.

The Human Bean team sends our warmest congratulations to Alex on successfully opening another Human Bean location. We look forward to growing with Alex and the awesome Human Bean Baristas in Caldwell and throughout Canyon and ADA Counties.
