Hey! I’m Morgyn! After being a full time student and full time worker, I’ve decided to slow the pace a bit and just work full time. The plan is to someday return and finish my degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. For now though, I am loving working here at J. Arthurs. My favorite drink is our Marble Marvel, though in the winter months the Chaider is a close competitor.  I enjoy reading and writing and hanging out with friends. 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.

Hey, Shasta here! I’m a tea loving world traveling sort of gal. I live an hour away in good ‘ole Wisconsin, (I know what a commute!) and love working at J. Arthur’s where my co-workers are my best buds. I’m a not-so-recent college grad and spent the last year (2013) living and working in West Africa. Ask me if I speak French! I also operate a small Etsy shop full of illustrations, handmade clutches and calligraphy designs. I have a heart for Jesus and all the proceeds from the shop go towards missions and ministry. I also admit that I am a fan girl and think Matt Smith is the best Doctor…ever.

Hey, I’m Alex! I live in the c
ity and retreat to the wilderness, or a local coffee shop if I can’t make it to the North Shore. I’m most content while sipping light roast, paddling a canoe or watching birds fly by. But seriously, birding is cool and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Moving on, the key to my
heart is ice cream. That’s probably all you need to know.

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 with my fellow J.Arthurs’ barista, Shana. 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. JACaroline'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.

Well Hello! I’m Charles and I am a fun loving guy just trying to make my way through this crazy world. I am currently studying Instrumental Music Education at Bethel University. I enjoy many things but I am probably the most passionate about playing music, singing, doing some kind of exercise, or backpacking out in the wilderness until I have no bars left on my cell phone. I have no idea what the future holds for me but I’d love to try to mix together all of my passions and teach kids! I hope to see you around and don’t be afraid to say hello!
