About the Show:

Jon and Andrea have created tremendous momentum with their business, now with four locations throughout Northwest Arkansas. Their business practices rest on a foundation of great coffee. From sourcing to roasting to serving their coffee Onyx Coffee Lab has made a name for itself not just here in Northwest Arkansas but around this great country.

Yes, their coffee is a little more expensive, but you get what you pay for, and the fact that they know or have a strong relationship with the growers of their coffee makes all of the difference in the world.

Hear how Jon and Andrea are pivoting their business model during the pandemic not only to keep their product moving out the door but, more importantly, to keep their whole team intact.

Where there is a will, there is a way!

Also, did we mention that Andrea is a "Bad Ass!" as a Barista. She is now U.S. Barista Champion, and here is a great article that tells how this award was won back in February and also what fuels her to operate at the highest levels possible in the"Coffee Game!"
