About Us


Jay Arr

Jay Arr is passionate about everything coffee. What began as a simple interest in the history, production, and brewing of coffee led him to a job as a barista at a national coffee chain. That’s not where Jay’s story with coffee ends, however.  Roasting and brewing day in and out, he continued to gather knowledge about all things coffee.

Today, Jay aims to share his knowledge and get others excited about coffee—from cappuccinos to pour-overs to Turkish.  From reviews of popular coffee drinks, to informational posts on the ecology of the coffee plant, to step-by-step guides on troubleshooting bad flavor, this page (and its blog) is here to help you foster your knowledge about—and your love for—coffee.  At JayArr Coffee, a particular focus of ours is single origin coffee. We want to help you find an origin that matches your preferences in acidity, body, and flavor notes!

Whether you’re a bonafide coffee aficionado with your own home espresso system or simply a person with a Starbucks latte habit, we hope we can enrich your appreciation for coffee of all types!
