The Founders, Shannon & Sebastian

Hello! We are Shannon and Sebastian! Two Veterans that started “The Happy Bean Project” together while serving in the United States Marine Corps. Shannon worked as a barista at 16 years old and fell in love with the impact coffee can make. “I loved how happy the customers were every time they drove through. I know how hard life can be sometimes and it’s amazing that something as small as a cup of coffee can make someone’s day better.” We started off selling coffee bags online and donating some of the funds to NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness. Quickly The Happy Bean Project took off and Sebastian and I alongside a team of volunteers started serving the coffee at homeless shelters and the streets to people suffering with mental illness (and anyone living on the street). We make coffee for people struggling with mental health issues and the homeless. Through coffee we are able to show these people in need that we care about them. Giving them hope and a person to talk to while sipping coffee.
