We are nestled in the middle of scenic downtown Fort Smith. A place to get away from the busy-ness of the day, catch up with friends, bounce off business ideas, discuss the latest book you’ve read, study for that college exam, and just otherwise enjoy all the things a coffee house should be. While you’re here ask us about our hand pull espresso machine, hand-crafted in Italy, our proprietary mocha sauces, and our available diabetic friendly lattes and frappes. We also love to show off our roasting process and the reason the “Difference is in the Taste”.

Awesome! is the only way to describe this place. The staff friendly, easy going, and can hold a great conversation with you of your talkitive that day. 2 coffees and its like that awful day never happened. Music is always playing and the art on the walls changes from time to time. It’s never boring but always a calming place. Having coffee here is like a mini vacation within your day.
Amazing espresso drinks and it’s organic!!! Great staff and chef. I’m so glad I found this place for my short stay.
This is our absolute favorite place in Fort Smith for breakfast, lunch and goodies!! We don’t live here so it’s quite a treat when we come here. In addition to awesome coffee and yummy food, this is a true local community place. From the beautiful art, music and promotion of local organizations, the Artistic Bean is exactly what coffee shops were intended to be.

I order fresh roasted beans often.The roast is a blonde roast.I run these beans through a burr grinder and brew with an Aeropress and French press. If you are a pure traditionalist, this is where you need to buy your beans.

“It’s the best coffee in Fort Smith, and it’s not even close. This type of atmosphere is what you would expect from a great coffee shop in a big city. You absolutely can not compare this place to anything else in the area.“
