Who We Are:
Coffee is a never-ending conversation and stretches from any angle. The taste, the aroma, body, the notes and accents, the origin, the roasting or brewing process, and onward. Coffee isn't just a substance to us. It brings comfort on a rainy day. It's a blanket of warmth on a cold, autumn evening. It's a refreshing boost in the hot summer days and it's a community for people of all races, gender identities, values, and belonging.
You belong here at Hanna Bee Coffee. You're totally worth a million bucks and we make sure you know that.
About Us & Our Coffee:
At Hanna Bee Coffee, serving you the highest quality coffee possible is our utmost priority. Founded by radio host Hanna Bee out of Nashville, TN, Hanna Bee Coffee beans are from local farms and roasted in small batches for the ultimate flavor, quality, taste, and freshness. Your thoughts, feelings, and preferences mean everything to us as we encourage everyone to be their true, authentic, and #extra selves. You won't leave our bar without a smile and a custom, handcrafted beverage with an abundance of sparkles feeling like the price of gold.

Our Lola Beans:
Lola Bean Profile:
Roast: Medium - Dark
Notes: citrus, dark chocolate, and floral
Sourced exclusively from the island of Indonesia, our Lola Beans are ultra-premium products resulting in 50% Sumatra Gayo & 50% Sulawesi Toraja Indonesian origins. Indonesia is the world's fourth most coffee-producing nation as our beans derive directly from 5th generation Indonesian family farms. Next, they are immediately roasted in LA and then right to you!
"No messing around with middlemen so your beans are as fresh as can be!" - Hanna
Green Bean Roasting Process:
Sorting means we look for the best shape, weight/density, and shape of the green coffee beans using a state-of-the-art automated bean sorter.
They’re first organized into silos according to these physical traits:
Damaged and non-coffee bean items are also removed during this process.
Next, coffee farmers hand sort through one more time to ensure only the highest quality beans are left.
The roaster is tailored to the Lola beans flavor profile to ensure the highest quality and taste
Part of this process is sensory-based: listening for the right crackling of the beans and recognizing the smell of the deliciously roasted beans.
Our beans are now tossed in a low emission Loring Smart branded roaster which is the industry’s leader in eco-friendly roasters. It has the ability to roast consistently even on smaller and different-sized batches! (Lola beans ARE small-batch roasted for love care freshness and flavor!)
Lola beans are organic, our supplier is USDA certified and is currently in the process of being marked for organic product advertising.
'Ooh La-Lola', right? Share the love and #BeExtra!
