What is Ben's Beans?
Ben's Beans is a small collective of coffee lovers- led by young entrepreneur Ben Hilton- serving home roasted coffee and specialty European based drinks out of a 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon endearingly named, "the Bean."
It all started in early 2014 when I began to explore the possibilities of coffee brewing using my newly gifted Aeropress. Through passionate research, I quickly discovered that there was a much larger art to coffee than I had ever known; and it all traced back to how to how the coffee was roasted. In an effort to explore this newly discovered world I began to explore coffee roasting using handfuls of green coffee and a popcorn popper. One day, I looked out at my almost complete VW van, wondering if I could somehow pair it with my coffee in order to take my passion to the road....
And at that moment, Bens Beans was born.
