    Where it all begins. Responsible for 51% of my caloric intake from toddler to full grown man, who was "making it" on my own.
  2. Cocoa
    Edc4d015 98a5 466a 8b01 0e986e8e2107
    Cocoa and coffee have the power to build and destroy empires. If gold were a bean, it wouldn't come close. Yes, I know it is hip to call it cacao.
  3. Coffee
    Cfde7348 c6ca 4d56 a010 0718192904c2
    A great pick this late in the draft. Many had it going #1, but from someone who can't tolerate caffeine very well, I hope you're all happy with this selection. See cocoa.
  4. Vanilla
    1ee34819 ab06 4595 b45e 0596b9f785a5
    Way underrated and often associated with being bland thanks to the ice cream market. Also way over priced and often replaced with artificial impersonators. The vanilla bean will make a comeback. Mark my words.
  5. Haricot
    A438f99d 1dfb 4479 8b80 d6c5375f56db
    The varietal to all our favorite savory bean dishes. Baked beans, green beans, cassoulet, red beans and rice, the navy bean, the great northern bean, black turtle beans, all haricots. Haricot in a pot is not to be topped.
  6. Soy
    Bd6b0bb3 6907 436c 98cf 8f346816ba13
    From edamame to tofu, what can't this bean do? Seriously, a modern "empire" bean in its own right.
  7. Chicago
    Feec3d7a df19 445a 943e e35b9f5d6873
    The ultimate urban american selfie bean. Having never been, I mostly know it through the distorted faces of my dear friends and family.
  8. Pinto

    Refried or in a burrito. A very humble bean.

    When I first tried hippie hummus, I thought it tasted like garlic poop. But when I then tasted greek hummus, it was like god having silky smooth diarrhea in my mouth. Humdiggity!
  10. Jelly
    632ba7b8 5557 429b a40c c0e911279f93
    The official bean of @mollyyeh
  11. Fava
    E4dc1481 a035 4c44 8567 93f5ec93fa26
    Perhaps the most widely used and international bean with ancient origins. Show some respect.
  12. Sean
    Cdb6879f acbf 41d0 912e f8c79bb7c715
    The only bean to act in both Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings.
  13. Black-eyed peas
    2d88e35d 9ca5 409e b6e5 e0202d38c0b4
    A very popular and misunderstood music group. At least I don't understand them. Sidenote, Podnah's in Portland has killer black-eyed peas.
  14. Boston Baked
    Cbf0ea1a e981 4ecd 9cda 2de622e68de9
    I may be dating myself, but I used to buy these for ten cents. I loved the taste of burnt sugar. I was and still to this day am a total idiot.
  15. Lentil
    3ce4169c 70af 40db 8e22 7a8f5a38bf25
    Nature's sugar free candy buttons.
  16. Mr.
    E215350a 7129 4dd1 92d5 d0d3ac0f1732
    Sometimes comedy makes me feel uncomfortable or even vulnerable. Mr. Bean just makes me angry and mean, a mean bean.
  17. Lima
    8f10c4ca eb48 4a38 ad8a 1fc4997b529a
    A popular bean, but why?
