New Downtown Shop Brewing Up Fresh Coffee


Mar 26, 2024

Located at the corner of Fifth Street and Campbell Avenue in Old Southwest is Asher’s Coffee Beans, a coffee shop owned by Jacob Asher Galbraith, a native of Northern Virginia who is pursuing a career in the food and beverage industry. Galbraith holds a degree in culinary nutrition from Johnson & Wales University and has previously worked as a chef at Wilderness Adventure in New Castle and headed dining services at Springtree Health & Rehabilitation Center in Roanoke. In 2021, he launched his own coffee business.

After starting with a pop-up event at a hardware store in Salem, Galbraith expanded to farmer’s markets and began wholesaling his coffee. He recently opened the store and roasts his beans at the LEAP kitchen using an Aillio Bullet drum roaster. The coffee shop offers about 17 different blends and single origin coffees sourced from around the world. The current best-selling roast is a low-acid blend from Peru, and the shop is located at 425 Campbell Ave S.W. in Roanoke.

With a passion for quality coffee and a background in the culinary arts, Jacob Asher Galbraith brings a unique perspective to the coffee industry. His dedication to roasting and sourcing the finest beans from different regions has set Asher’s Coffee Beans apart from other coffee shops in the area. Customers can enjoy a variety of blends and single origin coffees, all roasted in-house and served with care. Asher’s Coffee Beans is a welcome addition to the Roanoke coffee scene, offering a taste of passion and expertise in every cup.
