Onyx Coffee Lab

It was some years ago that Jon and Andrea began to dream of serving a sweet, black cup of coffee to their customers in Arkansas. This coffee, the mythical bridge between the blended chocolate drink and a strong black cup, needed to combine the delicate flavors only present when coffee is grown and processed with love and care, roasted to enhance but not mask the flavor, and brewed to highlight those flavors, with the kind of customer service that meets people where they are- a solid, kind approach built on a desire to please them not only in the exchange at the counter, but with the drink they sip over meetings, laptops, and books.

Out of this dream is how Onyx Coffee Lab was born in October of 2012. Back then, Jon and Andrea were struggling to get access to the kind of green coffee samples they were interested in. When no one knows who you are, no one wants to take a chance on you. They came out blazing with siphons, Kyoto cold brew towers, and weekly cuppings and classes, anything we could do to get customers asking why. Today, Onyx Coffee Lab consists of a roasting facility, three stores with another on the way, 59 baristas, two roasters, a delivery guy, a warehouse grandpa, and a toddler; with storefronts in Bentonville, Fayetteville, and Springdale – and soon a Downtown Rogers location.
