About

Commonwealth Joe Coffee Roasters (CWJ) is a premium specialty coffee roaster and retailer that pioneered Nitro Cold Brew coffee in offices in the D.C. Metro area.

With over 13 years of roasting experience, our mission is to breathe new life into an ancient craft and make amazing coffee approachable. That’s why we brought our coffee into offices, own and operate The Java Shack in Courthouse, opened Commonwealth Joe Coffee Roasters in Pentagon City, and launched a fleet of Nitro Cold Brew trikes across Arlington.

CWJ carried the torch of owning and operating Arlington’s oldest coffee shop when it gained The Java Shack - an establishment that would go on to win DC’s Best Coffee Shop in 2016.
