J&S emphasizes an artisan approach to your coffee experience, using scientific methodology in roasting beans and preparing drinks to ensure a consistent, fresh, high quality product for customers. J&S also makes a point in raising awareness of, and appreciation for, specialty coffee while providing convenient access for West Lawrence residents. In addition to buying from local businesses when possible, J&S Coffee is committed to helping coffee-farming communities by including in their selection several certified Fair Trade coffees and accepting donations to Coffee Kids in lieu of tips. Fair Trade coffees insure that coffee farmers are paid a living wage, and Coffee Kids is an international non-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life for coffee-farming families through economic, educational, nutritional and health improvements. J&S invites anyone to stop by and try a free sample of our brewed coffee and take home a sample of fresh roasted beans to enjoy at home.
