Being young and in love, I thought I had found the perfect match. We were a blend, if you will, one that benefited us both though we were two different people. Unbeknownst to me at the time, the perfect match I had found wasn’t her. Turns out she would be the one that actually introduced me to the love of my life, because she introduced me to coffee.

perfecting the blend

FunKY Bean started as a way to impress my fiance, but soon became a search for the perfect brew. I had worked long hours creating food here in Bowling Green for over 15 years, but the challenge of blending a signature cup of joe became my passion. 

Being fond of the Bluegrass State I set off to find a roaster right here in Kentucky who could not only pick the proper beans, but had enough experience to create a masterpiece each and every time. Along the way I was fortunate enough to source many other Kentucky Proud products that we are excited to offer you here at the Bean. From our coffee to the Kombucha we have gone the extra quarter mile to introduce locally sourced selections whenever possible.

Accompanied with the many recipes I had learned over the years from my many mentors, I started to conceive a new restaurant. I wanted to put to use the things I had learned in the kitchen and combine it with the many forms coffee may be. 

I was searching for the perfect match, and lucky enough, I found it. I hope you love it as much as I do, welcome to the FunKY Bean!
