Customer Spotlight: The Sentient Bean

Written by Cafe Campesino on Mar 1, 2005 in Customer Spotlight, NEWSLETTER |

Heading to Savannah? If so, visiting our truly dedicated friends at The Sentient Bean is a must. Not planning on a visit to Savannah….well, here’s the best reason we can think of to make the trip! Described by the New York Times as “a delightful coffee shop and cafe, and a haven for indie film, live music and literary readings”, The Sentient Bean is worth the drive…from just about anywhere on the East Coast! For starters, they feature music, movies, community forums, and poetry almost daily as well as community art exhibits on a monthly or bimonthly basis – check out their current feature and on-line photo exhibit and oral history called Savannah Women Speak at

For owners Kelli Pearson and Kristen Russell, the name, The Sentient Bean, is more than just a play on words; it is an expression of their ethic. They serve all organic and fair trade coffee and use organic ingredients in their baked goods and light lunches. They also live their commitment to fair trade by sending employees who have worked for them for two years to visit a coffee growing country with the folks at Cooperative Coffees. So far they have sponsored three employee visits to producer coops: two to Chiapas, Mexico and one to Nicaragua. The Sentient Bean is open from 7:30am – 10:00pm, seven days a week and is located at 13 East Park Avenue in Savannah, Georgia. Visit their website at to learn more!
