With super friendly staff, a mission to source sustainable specialty coffee, and a great shop atmosphere in all three of their locations, Bold Bean is a fan favorite. “The best part about Bold Bean is the people here,” chef and manager Eric Mangini says. “The employees are amazing. Also, everything the company stands for and the entire coffee process — from planting the beans on the farm to harvesting and everything from there — it’s just incredible.” Bold Bean has an enticing menu with plenty of options, but Mangini recommends the pour over coffee, as “it is the best way to experience Bold Bean.” 6:30 a.m. – 7 p.m. Bold Bean Jacksonville Beach: 2400 3rd St. S, Unit 200, Jacksonville Beach, FL.
