Freshly roasted coffee beans made in Roanoke, meet the man behind Asher’s Coffee Beans

Living Local

Roanoke, Va. (WFXR) — Jacob Galbraith of Roanoke is no stranger to a kitchen as a former chef, so when he combined that knowledge with his love for coffee in October and started home roasting every single day, he says he feels as though he crammed three years of roasting experience into three months.

Needless to say, people in SW Virginia are taking notice of Jacob’s efforts and now Asher’s Coffee Beans can be found at some of your favorite local farmer’s markets.

Galbraith shares what inspired him to get started, his commitment to sustainable packaging, and how he aims to be a proponent of supporting locally.
