Hydro Flask Partners with The Human Bean Drive-Thru Espresso Franchise


Hydro Flask, the award-winning leader in high-performance, insulated stainless steel flasks, will soon be carried by The Human Bean Drive-Thru Espresso Franchise. The Human Bean logo will be featured on the Green Zen and Black Butte Coffee & Tea Flask with the Hydro Flip Lid as well as the Copper Brown 64 oz Growler.

Available immediately at most locations and online, the flasks will retail for $22 for the 18 oz and $45.00 for the 64 oz. 

Hydro Flask entered the coffee and tea market in 2012 with the Coffee & Tea Flask and convenient Hydro Flip Lid. The flask has received high praise for keeping coffee and tea hot for up to 12 hours and iced coffee, iced tea and smoothies cold for up to 24 hours, even in extreme conditions. Like all Hydro Flask products, these durable flasks incorporate double wall vacuum insulation, BPA-free materials, 18/8 food grade stainless steel, and a lifetime warranty. 

“It’s exciting to partner with another like-minded company from Oregon,” said Charlie Ortega, Vice President of Sales for Food and Beverage at Hydro Flask. “Like Hydro Flask, The Human Bean has grown so much over the last few years, and we can’t wait to see the customer response to having The Human Bean-branded flasks available.” 

“We believe Hydro Flask is a superior product with unmatched quality and design,” said Scott Sayre, Director of Franchise and Vendor Development for The Human Bean. “It’s the perfect vessel for our customers to enjoy their favorite coffee beverage on the road, at home or at their workplace.”  

About The Human Bean

The Human Bean opened its first store in Ashland, Oregon, in 1998. Early success and positive customer reception encouraged the company to open additional locations throughout Southern Oregon during the next five years. The Human Bean now has 51 locations in eight states with several more coming soon. They also own and operate 13 corporate stores with plans for modest corporate store growth in the Pacific Northwest through franchising.

In addition, longstanding relationships in coffee communities have helped facilitate several projects at coffee origin communities. From The Human Bean’s first project in 1999 with Finca El Paternal in Guatemala, the company has been able to positively affect farming communities, while strengthening sourcing relationships with some of the best coffee farmers in the world. Through coffee purchases, customers of The Human Bean have helped support community projects all over the world, including providing school supplies for an orphanage in Sumatra, planting shade trees in El Salvador, and placing water wells in East Africa.
