Coffee is great, menu is extensive with every coffee you can imagine. The prices are wonderful. And last but not least is a marble chocolate covered espresso bean. Eat it right away or it will melt.

Their coffee is good enough. They give you a chocolate covered coffee bean (for free), it must be THE "Human bean" :-). Unfortunately, they didn't have ceramic cups to drink coffee .

Wednesday is double punch day and they have nice Hot drinks and they use either chocolate milk or powder or sugar free chocolate or chocolate syrup. For the good coffee and cocoa.

This is a great little independent coffee shop. Every drink is served with a chocolate-covered espresso bean. They have a nice case of pastries and treats. Beautiful local art for sale covers the walls.

The Human Bean is across the street from the Dunes motel and is a convenient place to grab a morning latte and snack.

On every occasion that I come here the staff is unfriendly and unmotivated and seem like they hate their jobs. They are under new management now so maybe that has something to do with it. Since they have become under new management they stopped serving fresh baked scones and pastries and have opted to sell pre-packaged muffin tops which are... More

The barista this visit was just as upbeat and friendly as our first visit and the reason we came, the espresso drinks, were wonderful too. With the one-way streets in Hillsboro, this is a bit tough to get into, but worth every extra second you spend. The place was very nice last time, but the barista told us that they... More

As a 67 year-old retired traveler, I was pleasantly surprised when I pulled up to the drive thru order board and the greeting "Howdy Doody" came from the speaker. I did not think a young person would know the source of that greeting which refers to a 1950's kid's TV show character. I asked the clerk when I pulled up... More
