“Baking is a passion of mine. I love baking. Not only do I love baking but I love giving it to people because I love seeing them smile,” Humphries tells

The Cocoa Bean serves a variety of cupcakes that are made fresh daily. Their most popular kind is ‘Better than Whatever’ – a milk chocolate cake with sweetened condensed milk, caramel and vanilla buttercream frosting topped with Heath toffee chips.

Other popular cupcake flavors include Strawberry Cheesecake, Red Velvet, Grasshopper and Death by Chocolate.

In addition to cupcakes, The Cocoa Bean also offers gourmet cookies. | Nate Eaton,

“We bake eight different flavors every day so it’s constantly changing and you can find different kinds all the time,” Humphries says. “We do serve ‘Better than Whatever’ every day because it’s our bestselling item.”

If you prefer cupcakes with ice cream, why not try the two mixed together? That’s exactly what The Cocoa Bean does with their ‘cupcake cream’ – chunks of cupcake swirled into Reed’s Dairy ice cream.
