“Good coffee with great ambience!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

I have been looking for quirky and cute independent coffee shops (read: no Starbucks and the likes) and stumbled upon Keen Bean. I enjoyed the coffee and had fun going through all the indie records.

“East oxford best and most charming cafe.”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

This place has it all. You can go there for the great music and choice of indie records, you can go there for the charming and lively atmosphere and decor or for the delicious gourmet Columbian coffee perfectly brewed for a reasonable price, but I go for Drew who runs this place with flair and talent and has created in this great music shop the most appealing student cafe to relax with friends or work on your essay. A wonderful find.

“Surprisingly brilliant!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

I spotted this tiny little place out of the corner of my eye as I was walking down Cowley road at about 5:30 this afternoon, and was immediately intrigued - not least because it was still open at that time. After a quick trip to the cash machine and back, I went in and was quickly impressed by the range of single origin coffees they had available. I had a Columbian coffee on pour-over, which was really well made, as evidenced by its fantastic taste! And spent a fair while chatting to the barista, who clearly knew his stuff. Will definitely pop back next time I'm in Oxford!

“Brilliant coffee”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Possibly the best coffee in Oxford, plus great atmosphere. Plus reliable wi-fi (important for the growing work-from-coffee-shop demographic), and they have now added in some fans to sort out the overheating problem (the one objection I had previously). Often have live music as well.

“I'm Keen!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Very tasty coffee at a reasonable price, lovely treats too. Great, friendly service, and in such a fabulous space - how exciting to sup your americano where great music has been performed the day before!
