The Human Bean Opens in South Carolina

The Human Bean opens in South Carolina today! This is the first location in the state and The Human Bean is also now located in 13 states nationwide.

South Congaree, SC – This morning, Ariana Burnell, General Manager announced that The Human Bean will open this coming Monday, August 10th at 5 AM.  The address is 669 Main Street, South Congaree, SC 29170.  Operating hours will be 5 AM to 9 PM every day.

The Human Bean, based in Medford, OR, opened its first drive-thru espresso and coffee stand in Ashland Oregon in 1998.  Since then The Human Bean’s signature style of service, quality beverages, and intentional convenience has fueled its growth to more than 100 locations.  The Human Bean is well known for its friendly and experienced baristas and for offering the highest quality ingredients too.

“We’ve been working really hard to get open.  It has been a crazy and exciting journey that has immersed me in the coffee culture and The Human Bean’s unique style.  It’s wonderful!” commented Ms. Burnell.  “The way that the Human Bean does things is like no other experience I’ve had in my restaurant career.  I’m certain that in no time we’ll be entrenched as a regular part of South Congaree’s daily life,” added Ms. Burnell.

    This the only Human Bean I have seen and I have loved it since it first opened!!! Everyone is always super sweet and helpful if we have questions, even though I rarely do because those frozen hot chocolates are the bomb!! Can’t wait to travel a little 30 minutes to see the next 2 locations coming to SC!! Hoping y’all take over the coffee market with all your amazing options and quick convenient service!!
