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!
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!
I’m a long-time lover of coffee, books, and all things Italian. I have a B.A. in Writing & Literature and dabble in work as a publishing intern at Graywolf Press, doing events for Magers & Quinn Booksellers, and freelance writing, editing, and being an all-around creative. While I’m not jamming out to hip hop or watching cat videos, I’m trying to read outside as much as possible, raising my two kittens, exploring NE Minneapolis and making art with my husband Andy, and never missing out on an opportunity to enjoy sweatpants.
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 Kate! I graduated from Hope College last year with my BA in French and Communication. Standing 6’9”, I am proud to be J. Arthur’s first elf-employee (just kidding). When I’m not working at J. Arthur’s, I can be found lurking the aisles of REI or watching “The Big Bang Theory” in Bloomington, MN (aka my hometown). I enjoy hiking, biking, and listening to the sound of Rebecca’s joyful laughter.
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)
