Hello from Yunnan Province, China

One of our good customers, Howard D. is an  amateur film maker.  He went to Yunnan Province, China to shoot a short documentary film, and fell in love with the area. He now lives there.

 Howard also made a short comedy film called "Crosswalk" which was totally shot in or in front of the Hard Bean. Watch the short movie below, it's pretty funny.

the difference

I love how your cafe is so unique, I've never been in another cafe that was like it.  It reminds me of something I'd expect to find in a place like Greenwich Village, a real coffee house, kind of where it all started.

new website

Hello Everyone,

 After a good bit of work, we have just launched the new Hard Bean Business Opportunity website.  We're pretty excited, and hoping to grow our Hard Bean family.  Be sure to take a look.  Here's a link

Congratulations & We'll miss you

We just learned that our good friends at the Grandview Mo. store have sold the store, and are moving west. We wish all of them our best, and we'll miss them. Sadly, the new owners do not want to continue as a Hard Bean.

Hello, Hard Bean Blog!

This is my first post on the Hard Bean Coffee blog but not my first association with this great group of business owners who cooperate with one another for better pricing, better help along the way, and the ability to build together a name that is recognized for its quality, its atmosphere and its excellent service.

My daughter is the primary owner and manager of our own Hard Bean Cafe in Grandview, MO. We opened the doors on March 11, 2006. We are proud to have created a community within the town's community. We have given the residents, business owners, employees of nearby businesses, students and teachers a place to call home.

I'll be posting again, you can be certain.

We are very sad to learn of the death of Terry Moyer, former owner of the West Reading Cafe. He will be missed by all of his good customers and friends. We send our best wishes to his daughters and family.

Here is a picture of better days to remember.
