About Us

Meet the Owners

The Smoky Mountains hold a special place in our hearts.  Lauren is a Blount County native and has served the Townsend community as an educator for over a decade.  Mike hails from West Virginia where he spent many years rafting, hiking, and building his music career. 

Each of our families gave us the ultimate example of servant leadership, and it is our desire to continue that legacy.  Our hearts are drawn to serving those in our community and our coffee is a byproduct of that desire. 

We want to show the love of Christ by radically loving everyone who steps inside The Artistic Bean.  So come on in, grab a cup, and relax for a bit.  Because when you're here...you're home.

About our Coffee

Here at The Artistic Bean we prioritize quality above all else. We don't take any short cuts to serve you the best coffee you've ever had. 

We start literally from the ground up by roasting our coffee in small batches to ensure consistency and unparalleled flavor.  

 Our Coffee House is located in the same facility as our roaster, which ensures the freshest coffee for you to enjoy.  The Baristas are passionate about their job and with our all natural ingredients you can be assured you're in good hands. 

 So come on in to the Coffee House and experience good coffee!  Enjoy the convenience of ordering freshly roasted coffee online, and trust us to deliver quality service with a smile on our faces.
