New Downtown Coffee Shop Brews Fresh Coffee

Jacob Asher Galbraith is a native of Northern Virginia who is pursuing a career in the food and beverage industry. He holds a degree in culinary nutrition from Johnson & Wales University and has worked as a chef at Wilderness Adventure in New Castle before launching his coffee business, Asher’s Coffee Beans, in 2021.

The shop is located at 425 Campbell Ave S.W. in Roanoke and offers 17 different blends and single origin coffees sourced from around the world. The top seller is currently a low-acid roast from Peru.
