Your cup of coffee is only as good as the beans we roast and we want to make sure you receive the very best! Not only does Jittery Joe’s Coffee select the top 1% of beans from at least 18 different countries, but we also roast in small batches to allow for greater quality and care. Microroasting allows us to be intimately involved in every roasting batch to ensure you’re getting the best cup of coffee possible.
Our roasting philosophy, in a nutshell, is to create a balanced, specialized roast for each different varietal and blend. Our roasts highlight the distinctive natural characteristics of the coffees. We invite you to try all of our whole bean offerings with this brief guide to the different countries and regions from which we import Jittery Joe’s Coffee.
House MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
WOW! A super-fresh retro diner blend that makes a cup everyone will love. You cannot go wrong bringing this to the family reunion. Central and South American coffees are roasted alone and then married in the perfect union of morning coffee.
Medium body, medium roast, with a sweet nice bite to get the day started off right.
Travelin’ Joe MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
Pack your suitcase. Travelin’ Joe has coffee from Indonesia, Africa and South America. We roast them separately to bring out the maximum flavor of each bean and region and then mix them with love and respect.
Travelin’ Joe is a dark roast that has a nice acidity with an earthy nut finish. Its complexity may be too much for the weak at heart.
Espresso MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
Sweet and mild, with a buttery, medium body, our Espresso Blend is easy to drink alone (or with a friend). Our Espresso Blend has a small pleasant bite that lingers, teasing your memory into wakefulness. This blend creates a crema crown that hangs around reminding you that espresso IS sweetness in a cup and king of the coffee world.
Sundown MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
A unique blend that is kept secret like the guarded recipes of Coca-Cola and KFC. This round, clean, citrus, full city roast is quick on top but has flavor that, like the sun setting over the ocean, lingers just briefly before saying goodbye.
Morning Ride MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
This is one of our most popular coffees. We use only the highest quality beans from Latin America to create a truly unique and robust cup of coffee. Precariously balanced, this full-city roast is full bodied, yet it dances on the tongue. Earthy aromas give way to sweet, uncompromised greatness. Enjoy as a drip coffee, or in a coffee press. A fine coffee to drink straight, or appease any palate with a little cream. The USDA organic certification guarantees that we comply with all organic processing standards and use only organically produced coffee.
Bear Blend MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
The intense flavor of Tanzanian Peaberry is well complemented by the smooth body and sweetness of Nicaragua Matagalpa. Dark roasted, this coffee is ideal after a meal or simply as a mid-day pick-me-up.
Terrapin Wake-n-Bake MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
The Terrapin Blend is a very full-flavored coffee. Dark roasted and earthy Zimbabwe beans are complemented by the bright acidity of Costa Rican Tarrazu and mellowness of Nicaraguan Matagalpa. The same combination of beans that Terrapin uses when brewing their Imperial Stout, this blend is for those who prefer a strong, assertive cup of coffee.
French Roast MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
Our darkest roast. This coffee stands up very well to lots of milk.
Decaf Two Stories MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
Two Stories is a dark roast, full of acidity and body from the combination of two different de-caffeinated Latin American coffees. The story behind the name is a sweet one. When Charlie's daughter was growing up, he would read her bedtime stories until she fell asleep. Charlie typically made it through two stories before she drifted off. Hence, "Two Stories" seemed a natural fit for a coffee that was meant to be enjoyed while winding down for the day.
Alternative Fuel MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
In partnership with BikeAthens, we're proud to offer "Alternative Fuel." BikeAthens has helped many in our community embrace a healthier form of transportation. And since a portion of the proceeds from Alternative Fuel go directly to BikeAthens, every can sold will contribute to furthering their mission.

Whoop-Ass In A Can MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
WoW! A super-fresh blend that will make you want to invite some friends over and open up a can. Central and South American coffees are roasted alone and then married in the perfect union of morning coffee. Medium body, Medium Roast, with a sweet nice bite to get the day started off right.
Anniversary Blend MEDIUM / FULL CITY / DARK
The Jittery Joe's Anniversary Blend is a rich and smooth, slightly smokey, blend with fruity notes. The coffee celebrates 15 years of micro-roasting in Athens, Ga. with two varietals that have been with us since the beginning, a blend of Ethiopian Harrar and Colombian Supremo full city.
