Most of the time I’m in and out so quick, I only do small talk. I always dig the cappuccino art…
Oh yeah. There was this one moment that I thought was pretty cool. I was in for breakfast on Saturday with my three daughters Olivia, Sophia and Isabella. Isabella, the littlest at 5yrs old, had a bit of a spill. Well, a lot of a spill actually. The three girls all got hot chocolates and I a coffee. After repeatingly telling Izzy that her hot cocoa was EXTREMELY hot, she takes a monster swig. She’s spits it out and proceeds to go a little ape. She not only spilled her drink, but all of ours in the process. She was so embarrassed. But, Elijah was nice about the ordeal, staying cool and collected. He came right over, cleaned-up the mess all the while making Izzy feel cool and helping put that smile back on her face. Nice…

At Cup o’ Joe our flavor isn’t just in our coffee.

Next time you’re at Cup o’ Joe enjoying our carefully roasted coffee and locally produced food, take a moment to look around and appreciate the mellow atmosphere and our knowledgeable, smiling baristas.

Boyd Jarvis, Area Manager

Boyd Jarvis, area manager of Cup o’ Joe and Mojoe, plays a big role in delivering that friendly, relaxing and one-of-a-kind Cup o’ Joe experience and appreciates Cup o’ Joe’s brewing excellence.

“Cup O’ Joe is different because we roast locally,” Boyd said. “Our coffee is delivered to our stores 1 day after roasting.” But the Cup o’ Joe experience goes beyond the coffee and food in front of you. We are locally-owned and heavily involved in each location’s community.

According to Boyd, local matters because it benefits our community while reducing the impact on our environment and also helps support the local economy.

“We have several great relationships with other local business owners,” Boyd said.

Boyd said his favorite part of his job is interacting with customers and staff and building relationship with them on a daily basis.

“It’s something I’m lucky to have the opportunity to do,” Boyd said.

If you’re a customer interested in the brewing the best pot of Cup o’ Joe coffee at home, Boyd has this to say:

“When buying whole bean coffee, we suggest using the product within two weeks of purchase and storing the coffee in an airtight container. We also recommend buying coffee whole bean and grinding it only when ready for use.”

Boyd’s favorite drink is a double shot of espresso he thinks the Carnegie NY Cheesecake is the perfect dessert item.

Keep your eyes peeled for Boyd at your favorite Cup o’ Joe or MoJoe location and say “Hi”.
