The Human Bean is Brewing a New Drive-Thru in Joplin, MO

March 04, 2024 // // MISSOURI - Baristas at The Human Bean will begin pouring coffee and other specialty beverages at 5799 N. Main St in Joplin beginning Saturday, March 2nd. 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 owners of the new Human Bean location, Doug, Lynn, and Ben Wright, say 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 25 years. Drive-thru stands throughout the U.S. are primarily owned and operated by individual franchisees like The Wright’s, who have a passion for bringing “coffee with a smile” to their communities. 

"We started by serving the very first cup with a chocolate covered espresso bean on top as a thank you. It’s a message we’re excited to continue sharing in Joplin, and we hope every customer leaves feeling that gratitude” says Dan Hawkins, CEO of The Human Bean.

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 women’s and men’s cancer prevention and treatment.

All of the money raised by the Joplin 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 Joplin has to offer from 5:00 am – 8:00 pm and can prepare for their visit by finding The Human Bean drink menu and Rewards App online.
