National chain of hipster coffee houses. The opening of a Cool Beans is one of the first indicators that the death of a neighborhood's cultural identity is imminent.
— Description at

Cool Beans is a coffeehouse chain in Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It's listed in the LCN as (BAN) and the player can invest in the company in the LCN website.


The company appears to be based on The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and the Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea, judging by the design of its stores. It is the second biggest coffee chain in San Andreas after The Bean Machine, and like its competitor is a popular hipster hangout spot. The company owns four stores in the city of Los Santos, which sell coffee, tea, cakes, juices and sandwiches.
