382168_10152313585915217_915958573_nHey everybody! I’m Morgyn! I am a full-time worker and part time student. While working here I am also pursuing a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign language. My goal is to use that certificate to begin a life teaching overseas, the first stop being Iceland! For now though, I am loving working here at J. Arthurs. My favorite drink is our Miel, though in the winter months the Chaider is a close competitor.  I enjoy reading and writing and hanging out with friends. I love dogs and all things superhero related, and I especially love sitting down and getting to know people over a cup of coffee or tea.

Hi I’m Rachel! I love the outdoors, running, playing sports, and watching the sunset! Being in the kitchen is one of my favorites things, especially when my mom is teaching me how to make something! I love, love, love spending time with family! (my nieces and nephews are the cutest!) And one day I am going to run a marathon. I have a degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy and teach private piano in the Minneapolis area.

Joni Van Bockel. JA

Hello! I’m Joni! I’m a California Girl in love with the Midwest. I am finishing my last year at Northwestern with an Art major and Graphic Design Minor. I love all things art related but specifically fiber arts. I hope to someday be an art professor at a University and to own my own sheep! I love dark roast, miels, and dark rose tea. I’m slightly obsessed with Joni Mitchell and hairless cats.

First things first, I am a closet soprano, that is to say that when I am in my closet at home I attempt to sing soprano. In all seriousness, one of my favorite things to do is make people laugh. I live in Minneapolis with the most beautiful girl in the world, my wife, Leah. If you don’t know her, you should! I am passionate about showing people they have tons of value, and coffee, so being a barista is the perfect environment for me. I dream of traveling the world, writing books, and starting coffee shops. That’s a little bit about me. Stop in, get some coffee, feel valued, and let me make you laugh. I would love to meet you.

Caroline. Caroline's Face

Hi guys I’m Caroline. I recently graduated from the school of hard knocks–AKA the University of Northwestern–formerly Northwestern College. My degree is in Intercultural Studies and my passion lies in teaching English to speakers of other languages and someday I will climb Mount Kilimanjaro.I love Jesus more than anything (yes, even coffee), but on a dreary Monday its a giant Americano or a fresh pourover that is my salvation.I’m a woman who enjoys making even the most dedicated grump laugh, so I’m here at J.Arthur’s committed to producing great coffee and beautiful smiles! I really enjoy riding my bike-the MN winter is the only thing stopping me from year-round commuting–and I love reading books that challenge. I’m also into yoga and green vegetables.

Hi, fellow coffee lovers!  (and to those who don’t love coffee, hi, I guess…)  I’m Jessica, a part-time student, part-time barista, and full time lover of all things European.  I just moved back to good old Minnesota from Oxford, England in order to finish my final semester at the University of Northwestern.  Although I plan to pursue a career in event management after graduation, I hope to stay involved at J. Arthur’s, where the delicious teas and coffees, friendly faces, and warm community reminds me much of my experiences abroad.  Also, I adore llamas.

Hi everyone! I’m Hannah and I recently graduated from University of Northwestern-St. Paul with a degree in Health Sciences. I will be going to the University of Minnesota in the fall for 2 years of Occupational Therapy school, so I am very excited about that next adventure! I love being outside, reading, playing sports, watching my Minnesota professional teams, crocheting, sweatpants and hoodies, laughing with my family, watching TV, and Netflix. I have loved getting to learn more about coffee, tea, and all things J. Arthur’s!
