The History of The Artistic Bean

How did The Artistic Bean, a coffee shop in Townsend, TN, the gateway to the Smoky Mountains, come to Fort Smith, AR?

CANCER! Yes, that is correct cancer. Two women’s journey’s with cancer brought The Artistic Bean to Fort Smith. First, Jamie Collins Doss, the owner of Bethesda Skincare and the wife of The Artistic Bean founder, Jeremy Doss. Second, Bev Ramsey, owner of Pink Ribbon Boutique and co-owner of The Artistic Bean, Fort Smith. Bev, as a two-time breast cancer survivor, had been asked to be on a committee at a local medical facility to help with a new program they were implementing to help cancer patients and survivors. In the process of implementing this program, Bev found out about a soap that was being given to patients going through radiation treatment. She was told how great it worked on the skin and having gone through radiation herself wanted to know more about the soap. After doing some research, she found out it was Bethesda Skin Care and they had a policy called the Melanie policy where they donate a bar of soap to a person going through cancer treatment. Melanie was Jamie’s sister that had passed away from cancer.

Bev wanted to offer the soap at The Pink Ribbon Boutique to help the ladies who came there as well. She contacted Bethesda, left a message, and on a Friday afternoon received a call from Jamie Doss. After a 30-minute conversation, a long distant friendship had begun.

Bev found out Jamie’s husband, Jeremy, an artist, had a coffee shop in Townsend and she began following it on Facebook. It was organic, which was healthy, great reviews, so she ordered some for herself and Pink Ribbon. The coffee was unlike any they had ever tasted. She noticed that they were opening a shop in Knoxville and then Maryville, TN. She emailed Jamie and said they needed one in Fort Smith. Needless to say, both ladies agreed!

Stan and Bev went to Townsend, TN, Memorial Day Weekend 2016 to meet Jamie and Jeremy in person and to check out the coffee shop. Stan, having been in industrial sales and around equipment almost all of his life, loved the small batch roasting concept. The barista made Stan a white mocha frappe’, made out of their homemade mocha sauces and the rest is history. Stan said we have to have one of these coffee shops in Fort Smith. November 7, 2016, The Artistic Bean in Fort Smith opened.

Cancer brought two women together. Much good has come of that relationship and one of those is
