New Downtown Shop Brewing Up Fresh Coffee

Roanoke’s coffee scene has been enriched by the arrival of Asher’s Coffee Beans, a unique coffee shop located at 425 Campbell Ave S.W. Owned by Jacob Asher Galbraith, a native of Northern Virginia who is pursuing a career in the food and beverage industry, the shop offers a wide variety of blends and single origin coffees sourced from around the world.

Galbraith holds a degree in culinary nutrition from Johnson & Wales University and has previously worked as a chef at Wilderness Adventure in New Castle and headed dining services at Springtree Health & Rehabilitation Center in Roanoke. In 2021, he launched his own coffee business, starting with a pop-up event at a hardware store in Salem before expanding to farmer’s markets and wholesaling his coffee. He recently opened the store and roasts his beans at the LEAP kitchen using an Aillio Bullet drum roaster.

With a passion for quality coffee and a background in the culinary arts, Galbraith brings a unique perspective to the coffee industry. 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. The current best-selling roast is a low-acid blend from Peru, but customers can enjoy 17 different blends and single origin coffees all roasted in-house and served with care.

Asher’s Coffee Beans is more than just another coffee shop; it’s an experience that celebrates quality, passion, and expertise. Whether you prefer classic blends or are looking for something more adventurous, there’s something for everyone at this unique addition to Roanoke’s bustling coffee scene.
