We believe the world needs a little more kindness and a little less chaos. It’s our promise to you that you’ll find that at Kind Bean every time you join us.” Jen and Clay, the owners of The Kind Bean
Have you been to The Kind Bean in Chandler yet? (They have more than one bean…) This family owned business is on the NE Corner of McQueen and Pecos Roads.
Dave and Colleen Specht, of the family owned ImprovMania in Downtown Chandler, brought me and my husband to their favorite coffee place on this past, very toasty, June 1st day. We had very icey coffee and Vegan pastries that literally melted in our mouths, but melted in that good way, from sheer delishishness, not from the desert heat. (Delishishness doesn’t appear to be a word, but I like it, so it it is, as of now, a word. Might even be my favorite word replacing the previous favorite word of kerfuffle.)
Excuse my wordy departure just above…back to kind beans and kind people and food that is kind to animals and the planet. This is a little piece of idealism and heaven right here in our hood. There are Vegan and Non-Vegan treats so if you have a Vegan friend, yet you are not, here’s a place to make both of you happy!
When you’re driving through this intersection in any direction, glance over to the NE corner and decide to stop in. Tell Jen, Clay, or their daughter that Here On The Cul-de-Sac sent you in for a kind word combined with a good jolt to your day through caffeine, yumminess and the feeling of being welcome. That feeling of being welcomed isn’t everywhere, so I like to notice it when it exists.
It’s time for a little tectonic shift in how we embrace strangers into our midst. This precious place is doing more than their share – they are spreading goodness with every cup.
Please take a minute to check them out and let your encounter there frame the rest of your day with energy, openness, and a little sugar high that could make every interaction at least entertaining, if not life-changing.
Here is the story of how their business came to be. It’s a good story.
Side note: I’ve been gone from interacting with the world via blogging for almost 5 months due to many kerfuffle’s that leveled me and my family both physically and emotionally. By taking this step today to write about people doing their best to change the world, it says to me that I’m on the mend…Phew!
Thank you for reading. ♥
