J. Arthur’s Coffee opened in 2008 as a training and meeting space for ACR employees. We also wanted to be a place where people with disabilities who live in ACR’s homes could come and enjoy a cup of coffee in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

In 2011, we opened our doors to the public and began pursuing an artisan, handcrafted approach to coffee with an emphasis on direct sourcing of high quality local ingredients and sustainability.  We are excited to share an exceptional coffee experience with the local community, as well as the opportunity to be part of a warm and welcoming place for people with disabilities.


It all boils down to good coffee, and at J. Arthur’s, it’s very good–good enough to make me consider changing my morning driving route.
