The Human Bean of Northern Colorado has proudly been involved in supporting community events, fundraising for local nonprofits, and honoring the hard workers who reside in this area of the state for many years. During the month of November, The Human Bean has several events planned that support our community members and encourage customers to give back.

For Veteran’s Day on November 11, all active duty members and veterans of the armed forces are eligible for a free drink at all locations. It is The Human Bean’s way of saying “thank you!” to all who have sacrificed so much for our country.

November 12 is Guest Barista Day. From 9-11 a.m., staff from Pathways will be chatting with customers about how this nonprofit benefits our community. 10% of the day’s sales from the Fort Collins Midtown location (1822 S College Ave) and the Greeley St. Michael’s location (6505 W 29th St) will be donated back to Pathways.

From November 18-24, The Human Bean is holding their Baking Item Drive to benefit the Fort Collins Rescue Mission and the Guadalupe Center in Greeley. For each donated baking ingredient, the customer will receive a ticket for a drawing to win a $25 Human Bean gift card.

Thursday, November 21 is Thankful Thursday honoring retail employees. The holiday season is an especially hectic time for retail stores and the employees are working long, stressful hours. On November 21, at all locations, retail employees can enjoy a $2 drink, up to a 20-ounce, when they show a name badge, ID, or uniform.

On Thanksgiving Day, November 28, all Human Bean locations will be closed.

November 29 is Black Friday and the start of the Toy Drive. The toys go to Santa Cops of Larimer County and Life Stories in Weld County. Customers who bring in a toy on Black Friday will receive a Human Bean Black Friday coupon booklet.
