Jason's Review

I don't remember "Java Monster" from the Sesame Street, but I'm assuming he was the Cookie Monster's affluent half black, half Russian cousin who was always looking to "score a piece". If he was looking to score "Mean Bean", I couldn't say I would blame him. This stuff tastes really good, like a melted coffee milkshake with an extra shot of "tastes good sauce". Very creamy and smooth, there's almost no coffee "bite" to this drink. Just knock-back good refreshing coffee goodness.

I felt pretty good after consuming this product. Just like the rest of the Monster line of products, this drink does not disappoint. Hansen Energy just knows what they're doing, and I look forward to trying the other 2 flavors of Java Monster.

Without question, this costs too much. Like the Million Dollar Man used to say, and probably still does, "Every man has a price". Well, "Every man also has a price limit", and mine is $2, for the most part, even for a 16 oz. drink. This energy drink is so lavishly overpriced, that even Jon Edwards would think twice about buying one of these to drink, and 4 cases to power his gargantuan house. If you can find them on sale, if not, wait until they become WIC approved, so those of us who are "less fortunate" can afford them.

Guests's Review

I was concerned when I heard that Java had made a coffee drink. I mean, didn't Starbucks trademark coffee and the names of all coffee related products around the time that AOL bought the internet? "Someone could get in trouble here", I thought. Soccer moms the world over might be confused to hear that there are competing coffee beverages. This could result in a bake sale to raise money to bring back "Sex in the City" and ban all non-Starbucks coffee/tea/Italian soda products. At the risk of causing a riot, I reached right past the bottled frappuccino, and grasped hold of a Java Monster Mean Bean. I proceeded to the register, and ponyed up nearly $3. Things weren't looking so good, maybe instead of "half the caffeine", Monster should have considered making it "half the price".

Well, once I got to the public flogging I was attending that day, I popped the top on my iced cold coffee beverage, and it was...AWESOME! It tasted like...WOW! Java Monster...the secret to life. Well, I think the "..." says it all.

Even with "half the caffeine", Java Monster provides a reasonable "feel good" kind of energy boost. I felt like I could accomplish things, like picking at sores on my legs repeatedly until they opened and began to fester.

Without question, the price is too high. One of the priciest products we've reviewed, at nearly $3, this is the Aston Martin of the canned/bottled beverages available in a gas station cooler. I've found that the majority of the populous is more comfortable parting with $175,000 for the ultimate British sports and luxury car than I'm willing to part with $3 for the ultimate in canned coffee energy beverages.

Java Monster Coffee Mean Bean can or bottle design and textual information
Fashionable coffeeish print on the can, with a very "natural" feel. "Java Monster. No foam, extra hot, half-caf, no-whip, non-fat, soy latte. Enough of the Coffee House BS already! It's time to get out of the line and step up to what's next. Java Monster...premium coffee and cream, brewed up with killer flavor, supercharged with Monster energy blend. Coffee done the Monster way, wide open, with a take no prisoners attitude and the experience and the know-how to back it up. Java Monster...half the caffeine of regular coffee, Twice the Buzz!" Hold on, did they just say "half the caffeine"? What a selling point, sounds as convincing as, "Vespa...half as cool as a Geo Storm", or "Anna Kournikova...half the tennis player of Maria Sharapova". And what's with the "..."? Is there a place I can get the text that you took out? You don't have to paraphrase yourselves.

*Correction: Originally, we reported that Java Monster Energy Drinks contained 16 fluid oz. per can, the contents have been updated to the correct amount, 15 oz.

Jeanine@2012-12-05 16:49:43
I tried other Monster drinks and did not like them. However, my son persuaded me to try Java Monster and I loved it. I do not like the price but for what I pay in starbucks --I'll pay. I was pleasantly surprised by how much energy I had--frankly blows my mind. So, I am sold. Like everyone else, I wish the price was cheaper and the distribution better.
jared@2011-07-08 16:23:48
Java Monster Mean Bean has a great flavor to it, but I wish I could find them at a lower price. That is why I started making my own energy drinks. They consist of different kinds of fruit juices and caffeine.
sophie@2011-03-22 11:01:14
just to let people know, you can find java monster at your local dollar general store for $2. i also didn't realize how much sugar they had in them. i love the taste of them. too many of them are bad for you.
k. wyatt@2011-03-04 12:44:01
I am hooked on the mean bean. It is so smooth and refreshing, but I refuse to pay $2.69 for it, so when I can buy is for $1.99 at my local grocery, I really stock up. There are 10 cans in my frig and I am drinking one at the moment.
Ahmad@2011-01-13 12:17:42
The best of the best Coffee in the world..
ga_peach_84@2010-12-13 15:09:31
Java Monster was a great drink...it gave the energy that I needed...but, I had it in the fridge overnight (yummo)..3 hours later I was dizzy and still am dizzy...uhhhmmm I don't think I will buy Java Monster ever again:(..I'll have to just stick with starbucks!
chef@2010-11-15 16:09:31
i hunt down mean bean at general dollar stores. they go for $2 a pop there and to raise business, they offer $5 coupons if u buy $20 bucks or more. as we all experience, that's easy to spend buying our crack in a can.
Hannah @2010-10-21 17:59:40
I hate energy drinks, and this drink was one of the worst i have tasted. It is artificial, and terrible for you! Don't waste your money on something that is disgusting. Edited by Jason: I like that we've moved from just "bad for you", to "terrible for you".
Harry@2010-08-02 14:57:16
I hate coffee, hate energy drinks, hate all that stuff.... but I took one sip of this beautiful Java Monster drink and continued to down it like I hadn't had anything to drink in days. Absolutely the best taste and refreshing feeling money can buy. A little pricey but well worth the cost of such an awesome drink. Drinking one right now. It never gets old.
Victor@2010-06-17 11:20:20
Java Monster Mean Bean drink is epic! Drinking one right now! Don't know which one I should try next... Any suggestions?
Kevin B@2010-05-28 12:13:41
Why is it coffee energy drinks are 15fl.oz. instead of 16fl.oz? Edited by Jason: This debate arose when Java Monster first came out. I think the argument was that the milk in a Java Monster cost substantially more than ingredients in a regular energy drink. To keep the profit margins reasonable, without watering down the beverage, I think they simply cut an ounce of drink. I'm not 100% on this, but I was following Hansen stock at the time, and profit margins related to the upcoming Java Monster line were a topic of debate.
Kevin B@2010-05-25 12:57:56
Mean Bean is so far my favorite java monster. It isn't as creamy as other javas and it tastes like there is more coffee in it. I drank it warm and that didn't make it thick at all and tasted, in my opinion, better. The energy was about what you'd expect from a monster drink. I rate this drink 8-8-6
Coffee Connoisseur@2010-05-17 13:05:55
I was raised on some of the finest coffee the world has to offer. My father was a coffee aficionado who had the latest and greatest commercial machines hooked up to the water supply on our kitchen counter! I too, have acquired the taste for anything coffee flavored...candies, ice cream, drinks, and the list goes on. Several months ago when visiting a friend who was drinking a rather large beastly looking can, I was offered a JAVA MONSTER MEAN BEAN. To my horror and surprise, I was instantly hooked. Similar to that nicotine reaction triggered in your brain from cigarettes for a smoker. Now, several times a month (more than I care to admit), I find myself on the hunt from gas station to drugstore to market, for the prize of as many Mean Beans as I can find. I have to drink one every morning and sometimes in the early afternoon for a pick-up! I never find coupons for these delicious Monkeys on my shoulder, and the price can break the bank when you drink them as regularly as I do. I also find myself hiding them in the wine cooler (rather than the fridge) so as to keep them all for myself instead of my frequent house guests. Beware...highly delicious, highly addictive, and highly likely to lead you to the poor house. C'mon Monster...give a girl a break! Send out some coupons, lower the price and make them more readily available to your ardent fans! Enjoy!

Java Monster Mean Been is very refreshing on hot days. even in the cold when all you want is a hot drink. maybe a different flavor of the coffee would be good.
Debbie@2010-01-14 14:41:47
I love monster drinks, but I wondered if you have thought about selling a coffee drink black? A lot of people love black coffee and I am one..I can't have all of the sugar. And I hate making coffee. I would love to have black coffee in my refrigerator. Thanks Debbie
eleanor@2009-11-25 14:20:09
I put it in the freezer till it was forming crystals almost a slushy , excellent, very refreshing!
kat@2009-11-13 14:00:46
Java Monster Mean Bean does go down smooth but i agree my limit to is 2$ the price is way to high,i have to admit i love them but only buy them once a week because it is so costly
Kakistos@2009-10-12 16:46:29
I thought Java Monster Mean Bean tasted good. The cost of a single can is high, but you can lower that by purchasing the 4 packs which my local grocery store has for somewhere between $7.50-8.50.
vicki@2009-09-03 13:36:52
I really like the taste of Java Monster Mean Bean. Please continue to make it. I would be nice if it was a little cheaper. It is the best on the market right now. Thanks.
JOY@2009-08-26 09:24:54
This mean bean energy coffee is the BEST of its kind!
ROBIN HAUN@2009-07-28 10:38:08
Love the mean bean...would love to see the price drop...paid $2.79 this morning for one can..OUCH!!
Jack Fulton@2009-07-01 11:30:40
I really, really love Java Monster Mean Bean. it is awesome and very flavorful, I was trying to find teh calories in one of the drinks, it is about 200 calories for the 500ml item. I thought it odd that the information is not on the product. At any rate it is by far the set best.
Heather@2009-04-06 12:57:41
By far the Mean Bean is the best. You can get a variety 12 pack of Java Monster at Sam's for under $20.00
