The Human Bean
In 1998, The Human Bean opened its first store in Ashland, Oregon. With early success and positive customer reception, the company was encouraged to open additional locations throughout Southern Oregon.
In early 2002, they began franchising their brand and system.
The Human Bean has their own coffee sourcing program called, Farm Friendly Direct. This program works directly with farmers around the world to form long-term relationships and support the farming community. This ensures a good supply of coffee beans from the farmers and helps the farming community have a better life. Some of the projects have been building water systems, schools and community centers, paying teachers wages and providing schools supplies.
While all the locations are drive through only, the Hillsboro, Oregon location, opened in October 2007, was the first to offer indoor seating with the addition to the drive through. Free wifi, couches, a plasma screen TV showing the news in the morning, local newspapers are also available. Also featured are local artist's paintings on the walls and along with weekly author and band appearances. An Outdoor patio is also available.
