Well-Bean Office Coffee Service


Well-Bean Coffee is a social enterprise dedicated to bringing great coffee and Break room Service to businesses in the Triangle area.

“Brewed to Bless” would well summarize the foundation and purpose of Well-Bean, the Speciality Organic Coffee company.

Our founder, Melissa Brown has always been passionate about wellness – physical, spiritual and mental wellness. In 2001 she began volunteering with a ministry in Nicaragua which seeks to provide physical and spiritual wellness to those it serves. Melissa, a passionate entrepreneur at heart immediately saw how she could combine her love for promoting overall wellness by opening a coffee business. 

Well-Bean was founded in Nicaragua by Melissa Brown, a daughter of missionaries serving in the area. Her parents had dedicated their lives to serve the Nicaraguan people and establish strong Christian communities in Nicaragua.

Melissa visited her parents often, and the dream of seeing the locals spiritually nourished AND financially empowered grew in her over the years. For the locals to be delivered from the chains of poverty became her task. Melissa, who loved coffee and was dedicated to wellness, married her hobbies to empower the masses and Well-Bean was born in 2013.

Melissa is a sociopreneur or rather a social entrepreneur.  Sociopreneur is defined in the Urban Dictionary  as “an enterprising individual that starts a venture not merely for profits but for inclusion of the communities that so far have been left out of the mainstream.”

Well-Bean’s coffee variety is sourced from different countries in the world and from farms in Nicaragua, which when combined create unique blend of tastes. Its profits are injected back to the enterprise and to support the New Song Mission Nicaragua, which Melissa has been a part of since 2001. New Song Mission was born from the shatters of Hurricane Mitch that hit the Nicaraguan coastal region in 1998. The money is used in Moringa production (leaves, bark, flowers, fruit, seeds, and root of this plant are used to make medicinal products) and  the running of a medical and dental clinic for the inhabitants of Nicaragua.

Proceeds support health initiatives for New Song Mission, which is what inspired the name "Well Bean".

Well-Bean prides itself in offering quality organic speciality coffee, which  means it has been tried, tested and passed all requirements according to USDA organic regulations. The coffee is roasted in small batches to order. This guarantees the quality and the coffee maintaining a unique taste. Delivery is done 2 days after roasting. It is the freshest coffee in town and can be delivered to your doorstep. The company also offers coffee service for business offices.
