Now Open: Get a Taste of The Human Bean in Los Lunas, NM

Baristas at The Human Bean will begin pouring coffee and other specialty beverages at 2680 Main Street NE beginning Saturday, April 20th Customers are invited to come get a first taste of the drive-thru’s offerings, including specialty-grade coffee, real-fruit smoothies, whole-leaf teas, and hot breakfast items to-go.  


Local owner of the new Human Bean location, Keith Griego, says the staff look forward to providing above-par products and exceptional customer service — all with a signature chocolate-covered espresso bean on top. 


“We’ve got an excited team who have been training and preparing for this grand opening. We are not building a business in The Village of Los Lunas, we came to build a team of local people, that will then build the business that will serve this amazing community” says Griego 


With a reputation for cheerful baristas and sustainably sourced coffee, The Human Bean coffee company has grown from a single location in southern Oregon to a nationwide brand over the last 24 years. Drive-thru stands throughout the U.S. are primarily owned and operated by individual franchisees like Griego who have a passion for bringing “coffee with a smile” to their communities. 


The Human Bean franchise CEO, Dan Hawkins, attributes the company’s growth to a community-minded mentality and treating everyone “like a kind human bean.” With quarterly charity donations and many smaller local initiatives, the company strives to make staff, partners, vendors, and customers feel valued. 


Customers can join the feel-good vibes by participating in several fundraising events throughout the year, including the brand-wide Coffee for a Cure Day in October. All of The Human Bean drive-thrus participate in the fundraisers each year, and collectively raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer prevention and treatment.    



All of the money raised by the Los Lunas drive-thru location will stay in the community and be given to a local organization of the staff’s choosing. 


Customers are invited to get a taste of what The Human Bean in Los Lunas has to offer from 5:30 am – 9:00 pm and can prepare for their visit by finding The Human Bean drink menu and Rewards App online.
