This is Alexis, a 1st grade student from our community. Her class was working on a project to build a town and Alexis chose to build Island Bean Company! We are so honored that she included us in the project.
Thank You Alexis!!!!!!!!!!!

Dorie and Paul,
I have to let you both know how much I enjoy your excellent coffee! I really appreciate the convenience, the fast and friendly service, and the really reasonable prices that you offer. And if all that weren’t enough, you consistently make THE BEST cup of coffee around! I’m a pretty simple guy and I like a simple cup of coffee and I can’t tell you how many times, as I’m driving in to work, I say to myself, “Man, this is a GREAT cup of coffee!”
My sincere thanks to you and your terrific staff for brightening my morning, and for making the finest cup of coffee in Pittsburgh.
Best wishes for continued success,

Island Bean Company is a daily stop in my routine now. They carry the most flavors to add to your coffee, many more than other coffee shops, even sugar free ones. Island Bean has great favorites like Coconut Cream, Mocha Mint, and Almond Joy to give your coffee an extra kick. The people who wait on you are the friendliest and nicest servers anywhere – I feel like they are friends I talk to everyday. Obviously, the best part about “that coffee place on McKnight Road” is that you never leave your car which is great in the winter or rain or even when you have your kids in the car. If you haven’t stopped by, you need to try it!

Ahhh, remember the good old days when customers were treated with TLC and pride went into every product? Well the good old days are here at the Island Bean. Whether you enjoy regular coffee or something more exotic you are sure to be pleased at Island Bean. Many times you are greeted by one of the owners, Paul or Dorie, or one of the several baristas they employ. Each of them makes you feel like you are the most important person in their world at that moment. From knowing what I like, to remembering details I have shared about my family and life, they seem to truly care about me! The coffee at Island Bean is an experience in itself, brewed to perfection with robust coffee flavor and aroma and served at the perfect temperature, by far the finest I have ever had. Once you try the Island Bean, you will not want coffee from anywhere else!

Dorie and Paul,
I’ve been meaning to write for weeks about how much your employee, Sarah, enhances your business. Although my husband and I are often only there on Saturday, she remembers the type of drinks that we always get. In fact, one Sat. when I was in a particular hurry, the drink was ready as soon as I had walked down to the building!
