Be the First to Taste The Human Bean in Universal City, TX

January 24, 2024 // // TEXAS - Baristas at The Human Bean will begin pouring coffee and other specialty beverages at 1800 Pat Booker Rd beginning early 2024. Customers are invited to come get a first taste of the drive-thrus 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, Adrian De La Rosa and family, says the team look forward to providing above-par products and exceptional customer service — all with a signature chocolate-covered espresso bean on top. This will be the second location in Texas for De La Rosa, the first one being located at 7224 FM 78 in San Antonio, TX, which opened in August of 2023.

“We’ve got an excited team who have been training and preparing for this grand opening,” says De La Rosa. “They’re ready to start sharing the energy here, and serve the friendly faces who come through our drive-thru in Universal City.”

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

“Our mission is to inspire authentic human connections with every cup. This new drive-thru opening is another opportunity to do just that — spread kindness and foster connections in the communities where The Human Bean is served” 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 cancer prevention and treatment.

All of the money raised by the Universal City 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 Universal City has to offer and can prepare for their visit by finding The Human Bean drink menu and Rewards App online.
