Great Customer Service

I think Fair Bean is a great place to go by and enjoy a coffee or tea. I especially love their cafe mochas and how they serve them in actual coffee cups (makes me feel at home). Every time I have been to Fair Bean I have been greeted by baristas that are friendly and personal. I believe Fair Bean is a great asset to the local community and that's why I would recommend them to my friends. I think I will go by Fair... view more

as fresh as it gets

I went looking for a coffee shop I'd never been to, and this Sunday I stopped in at the Fair Bean. Now, I've read the other reviews, and what I haven't heard mentioned thus far is just how serious this guy (the owner) is about making great coffee. I mean, the Dude was cooking (baking) some beans when I was there. You ever see one of the folks at Starbucks cooking their own? Not me. The coffee was great! Pretty cool p... view more

Free wifi.

I have to say the concept is good, the location is fabulous and the free wifi is exceptional. Though my husband is the coffee drinker says the coffee is just not strong enough. I too, as another reviewer said, would like to support local businesses. I have been to this coffee shoppe several times. and I can't help feeling a little unwelcome. The decor has a urban-chic polished cement warehouse feel. Maybe the ""... view more

Disappointing

I keep trying to give Fair Bean a chance and I walk away disappointed every time. My first visit, I actually had to instruct the barista on how to make a latte, which was bizarre. All 3 trips,which I've spaced out months apart, there has not been an improvement in their product. I ordered a latte today from a very surly and annoyed barista and it was horrible. No wonder the place is always empty when I drive by. Asid... view more

6-months Update - Fair Bean Coffee

Disclaimer - I'm the owner of Fair Bean Coffee\r \r Here?s a list of what we have that stands out:\r \r 1) On-site roasting done almost daily, guaranteeing freshness of the Coffee we serve and the beans we sell in bulk (seven different kinds; four of them fairly traded). This allows for tight control over the taste of the Coffee, giving us an excellent Espresso for our Cafe Bon Bon, an excellent Guatemalan HueHue... view more

Fair bean falls short of potential

I was really excited to try this shop last week, it?s cute, close to home and not too crowded. I?m sorry to say that I was really disappointed. I?ve never written a complaint to a company before, so I?m not just being dramatic. Here?s what went wrong; I came in, there were 2 people behind the counter, a guy and a girl. The girl was too busy sending text messages to say hi and the guy just sort of stared blankly, as t... view more

Great coffee and goodies at any time

Not only a fair trade place but also THE coffee place in South Austin, with excellent service and delicious Latin American salty goodies like ""pancitos de queso"" to try along with a ""cafe pintado"" or any of the teas. By the way, the Healthy Shake is tremendous! (it's a whole meal in itself). In addition to the wi-fi service, the couches add a very cozy atmosphere to the place perfect to take my customers in there... view more

Total package of product, service, proprietor, atmosphere and business purpose makes for a very sat

My wife and I were in need of a cup of coffee while X-mas shopping. We were dragging and dropped into Fair Bean Coffee for the first time. We asked for a recommendation from the owner and this led to an interesting conversation about the brief history of the shop and its fair trade approach. The coffee and food were excellent, the feel of the place was very comfortable and relaxed and the back-story added to the ove... view more
