At Joe Bean’s, our first priority is you, our customer! We are committed to brewing the best coffee in Lynchburg and Appomattox with the ease and convenience of drive-thru, friendly service. We search for the best choices in coffee and bring them to you, refusing to settle for nothing less than the finest quality beans. We strive to provide you with quality goods, select blends, and a unique variety of beverage choices that make it easy for you to find what you want.

In 1999, Linda Brown went to Montana on a fly fishing trip. While she was there, Linda visited a drive-thru coffee shop for a quick cup of her beloved java. Not only was the coffee amazing, but the experience was easy and convenient. Linda realized that not only did Lynchburg, Virginia need a coffee shop that sold high quality coffee and fine espresso, but the city could also benefit from the convenience of a drive-thru. With her goal in mind and in hand, Linda returned to Lynchburg on a mission.
As a businesswoman, Linda had quite the resume. With years of experience in restaurant management in combination with her love of coffee, Linda began researching both her product and her methods. At first glance, many people assume that opening a coffee drive-thru is a simple procedure. However, Linda quickly realized that to choose the finest blends and build a shop that was efficient, she needed some help. She found her right-hand man when she met Bob Cox, a coffee expert who had been in the business for over 30 years. Bob learned first-hand about coffee from the cupping table at Boyd’s, and was able to bring to Joe Bean’s his wealth of knowledge about the finer attributes of coffee, such as taste, body, fragrance, and color. Not only did Bob act as a consultant, but he and Linda let their relationship transcend a business partnership. The two coffee lovers fell in love with each other and were later married.
