We opened the Artistic Bean in Fort Smith for one purpose, to provide folks with the very best in the “Coffee Experience”. This includes not just the very best organic coffee but great food and a warm inviting atmosphere. We also promise that no matter how much we grow we will always use the best coffee beans, roasted in small batches to assure the quality is at its very best. There is a difference in good coffee and “Great” coffee. We invite you to try us out and “Taste the Difference”

  • 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.

  • 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.“
