Heyo, this is the fearless manager, Seth Young! These days I am working as barista and making some rad scribbles as a freelance illustrator. I like coffee and the like, but I love people more, so come aboard for raving adventures in a world of blackened caffeine seas, foaming steamed milk waterfalls, and tranquil pools of silently steaming tea. J. Arthur’s awaits!
Hey y’all! I’m Morgyn, your J. Arthurs veteran. I’ve been serving coffee here for over 3 years now. I’ve been here so long because I love the staff and all the lovely regulars that I get to see almost every day. When I’m not pulling espresso shots or steaming milk, I spend my time working as an Elementary Literacy Tutor. I’m also a freelance writer on fiverr. Writing and making coffee are my two biggest passions. I also really love dogs.
Hi! I’m Kristen.I am a double major in Psychology and Sport Psychology at Concordia University St. Paul, where I also play Division II Soccer. I am an avid coffee drinker and my hobbies include reading, playing viola, watching Netflix, and of course drinking coffee.
I’m Sarah, and I have a Writing/Lit degree. Books & coffee is my favorite combination. I have an Italian ancestor, which is awesome, because I’m going to live in Florence someday. In another life, I’d be a hip hop dancer and broadway actress. My two cats are out to get me. I sell books at Magers & Quinn in Uptown. I have a crush on Minneapolis and all our indie publishing houses. I write stuff. My current favorite Netflix binge is watching House with my husband. Also, I never want to miss out on opportunities to wear sweatpants or bringing home 20 books from the library.
Hi there! I’m Connie. I love horses, good books, friendship, holidays, and the color hunter green. My hobbies are rich and varied, ranging from all things involving unicorns, sunshine, early mornings, and spelling bees. I am so glad to work at J. Arthur’s with all these lovely, honest, and wonderful people.
Hi! I’m Mike, I enjoy long walks through REI, smooth jazz. and the smell of fresh cut wood. If I’m not making the most bomb cup of coffee you’ve ever had, you can find me somewhere in the mountains, probably knitting or something like that. I’m a great arm wrestler and world class hair flipper. Some of my hero’s include: Tommy Caldwell, My pops, and John Muir. If you enjoy talking about different origins of coffee beans for hours on end, or if you like wearing socks, I’m sure we’d be great friends!
P.S. you look great in that shirt
Hi, I’m Caity! Not be confused with Kate. I love spending my time singing or playing with yarn in the sunshine. After getting my degree in Intercultural Studies, I have found my life goal. That goal is to be in a ministry in Russia that allows me to become a babushka and help all the orphans and homeless cats! (ignore the Russian puppy in my photo)
Hey! Morgan here. I’m a senior double major in Biology and Biochemistry at the University of Northwestern St. Paul. The biochemist in me will make sure your coffee is always prepared precisely (and thus, deliciously). I’m currently finishing up my last semester at UNW and am interviewing for PhD programs in Immunology beginning Fall 2016. After that I hope to become a college professor. Finally, here are a few of my favorite things: snow, old books, philosophy, new books, playing violin in the UNW orchestra, coffee, science jokes, and my super cool family.
I (Julia Wallace, or Jules if you prefer) am
a Colorado nearly-native. I came to Minnesota for school in 2013. I’ll have a double major in Nursing and Biblical Studies when I finish school after a long 8 year trek to a bachelors. I like all the little things in life and all the big things too. My perfect day would involve getting up at 6 with a cup of black tea, going on a hike, having good conversation with friends, and SALSA dancing. And I’ll be honest, probably a nap. I LOVE working at J. Arthur’s because I get to greet friends all day with a smile and a cup of liquid happiness. See you here!
