We have hosted our annual summer food drive every year now for nine years. With the majority of food drives held during the winter months, food banks run lowest on food supplies during the summer. The Human Bean believes that everyone deserves a nutritious meal, no matter what time of the year. Each year The Human Bean food drive grows and raises more donations than previous years. Thanks to customer support, The Human Bean raises thousands of pounds of food to donate each year.  We hope to make an even bigger difference every year.  You can see other ways The Human Bean gives back to our communties HERE.

Warrenton, Oregon Location New Owner

Warrenton, Oregon location new owner, Alisa Trotter, took over operations on September 1st. The Warrenton location was previously owned by Adam and Kristi Israel since 2007.

Kristi Israel had this to say of their departure in a recent Facebook post.  “Adam and I just want to take a moment to thank all of our loyal customers over the last eleven years. I am happy to announce that Alissa Trotter will be taking over ownership of the Warrenton Human Bean as of September 1st. Please stop in and say hi, she is eager and excited to start this new adventure.”

Alissa Trotter comes to The Human Bean with previous coffee business experience.  She was employed by The Human Bean from 2010 through 2016.  She originally started as a barista.  She then worked her way up to a position in the corporate office where she handled marketing tasks such as social media, sponsorship events and even helped to open a new location.  Through all of this she says, “My heart kept pulling me back to the stands.” She feels that, “it’s a privilege to have the opportunity to make someone’s day brighter in a small way such as a genuine smile, a delicious drink or a ‘Good Morning’.”  Trotter continues, “The support I’ve received so far from corporate has been incredible. I am proud to be a part of this amazing brand that takes care of each other like family.  Giving back to the community I serve is important to me.  I look forward to making a positive impact in Clatsop County. They have already given me such a warm welcome too.”

The Human Bean Franchise

The Human Bean’s commitment to developing the best drive-thru espresso led us to franchising The Human Bean’s brand and system in 2002. The Human Bean has now expanded to 79 locations in ten states. They expects to continue this growth through approved franchisees.  They plan to open several more locations in the near future.

In September, the Warrenton location will be showing their appreciation to teachers and faculty with $2 drinks on Thankful Thursdays.  And on 9/11, they will be giving free 16 oz. drinks to all first responders.  In additional to regular donation and appreciation days they will continue sponsorship opportunities such as the Seaside Basketball Tournament that has previously been supported by the Israel’s over the years.

“From barista to marketer, to now being a franchisee – this journey has been more than I could have ever dreamed possible and I am beyond grateful for this opportunity,” say Trotter.  “Please swing by to say hello – I’ll be working alongside the team of friendly baristas at the Warrenton location and can’t wait to meet you all.”

The Warrenton location is at 1526 SE Discovery Lane in Warrenton, OR 97146.  Their hours will be 4:45am – 8pm daily. You can find them on Facebook at @HumanBeanofWarrenton and on Instagram at @humanbeanwarrenton.

Summer Food Drive

Summer Food Drive in August at The Human Bean

We hosted a food drive all month long in August to re-stock local food pantries when they are often at their lowest supply.  For every $20 donation you gave we gave away a free 20 oz. drink coupon.  For every $10 donation we gave away a Buy One Get One Free drink coupon.  We also gave away our popular reusable bags on August 24th to anyone who gave a non-perishable food item donation or a cash donation to the food drive.  One bag per customer and two per car while supplies lasted and only at participating locations.

We have hosted our annual summer food drive every year now for nine years.  With the majority of food drives held during the winter months, food banks run lowest on food supplies during the summer.  The Human Bean believes that everyone deserves a nutritious meal, no matter what time of the year.  Each year The Human Bean food drive grows and raises more donations than previous years. This year in Jackson County alone we were able to give 836 pounds of food and $2,000 to Access Food Bank.  Access said they will be able to purchase 10,000 pounds of food with the $2,000!

Thanks to customer support, The Human Bean raises thousands of pounds of food to donate each year and we hope to make an even bigger difference this year.
