New Downtown Shop Brewing Up Fresh Coffee

Jacob Asher Galbraith, a native of Northern Virginia and a graduate of Johnson & Wales University with a degree in culinary nutrition, has recently opened Asher’s Coffee Beans in Roanoke. Galbraith, who has previously worked as a chef at Wilderness Adventure in New Castle and headed dining services at Springtree Health & Rehabilitation Center in Roanoke, launched his own coffee business in 2021 with a pop-up event at a hardware store in Salem before expanding to farmer’s markets and wholesaling his coffee.

The coffee shop, located at 425 Campbell Ave S.W. in Roanoke, roasts its beans at the LEAP kitchen using an Aillio Bullet drum roaster and offers about 17 different blends and single origin coffees sourced from around the world. The current best-selling roast is a low-acid blend from Peru, but customers can also choose from other popular options such as an Ethiopian Yirgacheffe or an Indonesian Sumatra Mandheling.

Galbraith brings a unique perspective to the coffee industry with his passion for quality coffee and background in the culinary arts. His dedication to roasting and sourcing the finest beans from different regions has set Asher’s Coffee Beans apart from other coffee shops in the area. Whether you prefer blends or single origin coffees, Galbraith ensures that each cup is roasted in-house and served with care.

Asher’s Coffee Beans is a welcome addition to the Roanoke coffee scene, offering customers a taste of passion and expertise in every cup. With its high-quality beans, knowledgeable staff, and friendly atmosphere, it’s no wonder that this new coffee shop is quickly becoming one of the most popular spots for coffee lovers in town.
