About three years ago, I discovered Mean Bean Coffee. I was not a big coffee drinker, until I tried the chocolate caramel kiss. Oh my goodness. I was sold. I have since moved from the area but I now order on line! I love Mean Bean you will too!

I bought some Maple Bacon ground decaf and it is awesome. Very friendly. Love the samples. The lady working was friendly and helpful since this was our first time here. Definitely a return visit. Thank you.

Over 200,000 varieties. All Roasted. Smells Divine. Tried some coffee, very good. Purchased, Sumartran, Ethiopan, and Panama Coffee. All, Extremely Bold and Beautiful smell.

From my experience, Mean Bean makes the best cappuccino in Galena. Both times I was in, the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They also have a good selection of tea and coffee accessories, but in such a small location it leads to a slightly cluttered atmosphere. Great products, but I’d have liked to see a little more room to enjoy them. Regardless, I will definitely be returning!

Whether your a coffee lover or not, as soon as you walk in to the shop it is a very strong smell of coffee. You don’t even need a cup, just inhale the caffeine! YUMMY!! I got the Mocha Java and I am loving it!! You definitely need to make it to the end of the street on your trip to Galena. I wish I would have sooner!!

My husband has tried to get me to drink coffee for 30 years and hasn’t happened til we walked into Mean Bean and I found “Slippery Nuts”. It’s amazing and the service is fabulous too!!!!

What a unique coffee shop! The intense aroma of freshly roasted coffee, is so inviting, when you open the door. It was like walking into heaven! Next time, we are in Galena, I will definitely have to do a custom blend.
