Baristas at The Human Bean will begin pouring coffee and other specialty beverages at 3695 Concord Parkway in South Concord beginning this Wednesday, July 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, Gary Davies, says the staff look forward to providing above-par products and exceptional customer service — all with a signature chocolate-covered espresso bean on top. 

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 Davies, who have a passion for bringing “coffee with a smile” to their communities.

Scott, Anderson, COO, says, “It’s a pleasure to be able to give our customers something they look forward to. A special and  memorable connection, and a beverage that helps them thrive.” 

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 and Mochas for Men in June. All of The Human Bean drive-thrus participate in the fundraisers each year, and collectively raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for women’s and men’s cancer prevention and treatment.  

All of the money raised by the South Concord drive-thru location will stay in the community and be given to a local organization of the staff’s choosing, says Davies. 

Customers are invited to get a taste of what The Human Bean in South Concord has to offer from 5 am to 9 pm every day, and can prepare for their visit by finding The Human Bean drink menu and Rewards App online.

    We work right across the road from your new location in Concord. I have a suggestion….close another week and retrain every single employee you have. Between myself and our coworkers we have gotten at least 6 orders and only 1 was even correct. These folks have no clue what they are doing. I sympathize as I spent 15 years in food service, but if they were not ready to open, then it should not have happened. Every time, our drinks are incorrect. Today my small, hot snowy mocha was iced and my husband’s bagel was microwaved so long it was a rock. Last week my husband ordered a spicy biscuit and it was frozen. My son had an order with an Irish cream breve and ask for splenda and it was the most bitter disgusting drink ever, nothing Irish cream about it. The list goes on. I won’t be coming back for a while and hopefully they can work out the bugs.
