Our vision at Edison Coffee Co. is to cultivate an atmosphere that connects people to one another, that values quality over quantity, and that inspires others to join in.
We are a team of baristas, roasters, and creatives who love coffee, ideas, and people. Whether at the roastery or cafe, you'll find us working hard and having fun. Come see us!
Meet the dynamic duo responsible for our being here. J and Melanie met over coffee and fell in love with the idea of pursuing that craft together. Combine Mel’s desire to cultivate a meaningful experience with J’s gift of forging new ideas and you get one hell of a team, plus a heart/vision that people gravitate towards and want to keep growing with. Both skilled in the area of creation, most of the dopeness you’ll notice in the cafés was drawn or designed by the work of their hands with love. If there’s a way to do it better, these two’ll find it.
Company Manager Extraordinaire and greatest dog mom to little Juniper. Brooke loves expensive whiskey and will hop on a plane to anywhere if it means a good time. Her appetite to give more, go further, and challenge her ‘best’ is unrivaled here, and only few know of her hard work spent after hours and behind closed doors. Things you could catch her doing unashamedly: jumping in the pool fully clothed, googling pictures of baby foxes, and/or dying her hair (again). She is the sister that everyone wants.
Meet Chandler. She's our cold brew queen. She's got a penchant for cacti and soft smiles,and if she's not at work, you can find her playing hide and seek with her husband and her dog, Rascal. She's a wordsmith if there ever was one and she's got the fiercest and tenderest heart you've ever seen. She's a community builder and she makes our shops feel like home. She sees the vision behind things and makes them come to life, and all those who know her are better for it. If you're looking for a steadfast friend, caring coffee-slinger, or donut sommelier, Chandler is your girl.
The oldest soul on our team. Brandon’s not afraid of a cashmere sweater and turning in early for the evening. He’s tidy and particular and there’s no one we trust more to bring out the very best in our coffee. He’s humble and approachable in his knowledge of coffee, and his attention to detail has allowed for some fun experimentation that’s never compromised quality. When Brandon isn’t at the roastery, you might find him writing music with the boys, hogging the Xbox, or making nachos out of whatever’s left in his refrigerator.
Soledad is our Spanish princess, in charge of concocting new beverages and cranking out dozens of pastries in the kitchen. If it were up to her, she wouldn’t use recipes – only her perfect taste buds – to bake something that feels like dreaming. She’s one that you should hate but can’t because she’s wonderful. After one interaction, Sole will be able to say what type of car a person drives and how often they donate blood and what their purpose is in living. She captures the hearts of our customers, and they leave better than they came. It’s the dimples, probably.
Clint will be a girl-dad by Christmas, and he’s the hippest one you’ll ever see. If thrift stores worldwide could have a mascot, it would be Clint in all of his cuffed-plaid, Birkenstock glory. He likes curry and his cat and has a thing for his artist wife. Long hair, short hair, beard or not, Clint is always down to explore newness, welcoming the inevitable change and progression of a small business dream. He has this unspoken way about him that makes a wildfire seem calm – it’s charming and invites people into what we’re doing here.
Otherwise known as Jerwin. An unlikely suspect, this one. Jay is tall and meek and endearing until he speaks and you realize that his humor and talent and intelligence go way beyond your scope of understanding. He is our veteran barista here at Edison, and we esteem him as the man of the house these days. He works wonders behind a video camera, and a lot of our media ventures can be traced back to his brilliantly creative ideas. People that have a hard time finding their niche find their niche in normal conversation with Jay. He’s a good one to have around.
EEN. Yes, we know – Daniel Radcliffe – it’s uncanny. 80% of our customers come in and know Ian (or at least know of him). If they don’t, well then, he’s found his next challenge. And he doesn’t take the sincerity in knowing someone lightly. Relationally, his skills sweep across Denton and Dallas and really anywhere else he’s been. People are kind of his gig. When he’s not behind bar slingin’ spro, he’s behind a Canon 6D bringing the shop to life and capturing still moments that are so often taken for granted.
Billy – inventor of the neck scarf, indie music queen, and our favorite baking babe. She wears many hats and juggles them all so delicately so as not to upset one or the other. Bailey can hang with the dudes and go out with the girls, and everyone that comes in has a seat at her table. She’s thorough and precise but doesn’t take herself too seriously, which is an unachievable balance for most. She is the whole world’s #galpal and will be glad to pour you one of the meanest tulips a cappuccino’s ever seen.
Aves is a beautiful, walking dichotomy that strangely and exactly represents the Edison brand. Detail-oriented and carefree. Professional and driven and weird as all get out. She has the voice of an actual angel and is extremely gifted at coordinating events that bring people together. If you’re with Avery, you’re probably on video and it’s probably embarrassing. She is a loyal, fun-loving friend and one of really good character. Her boyfriend and bae-rista says that “all you dudes better forget about her.”
Denton’s OG (Original Gangster). Josh will also be a girl-dad by Christmas, and we’re not crying, you are! He’s a pastor-in-training and has gotten the hang of this coffee thing real quick. He’s honest and trustworthy and what you see is what you get with him. If Josh isn’t in Texas, you’ll find him hiding out in Colorado or New Mexico – most likely in a hammock next to a stellar sunset or on a bike making the mountains his muse.
Jack, Jake, Kyle. He enjoys being called all of these things. Jack was repping Edison long before he was one of Edison’s finest. A dedicated guy and the quickest one you’ll be greeted by as you walk in and out of a room. He’s eager to make memories, uphold traditions and contribute his share. If you ever need an MVP to laugh at your jokes or to recall an obscure quote from The Office without searching on the Internet for it, Jack’s your man. He won’t let you down.
A-Ron, America’s heartthrob. He’s about five years older than he is and wears integrity and compassion and servanthood like they just came from his closet. Behind hiscoiffed hair, flannel, and khakis is an incredible musician who’s disturbingly familiar with 90’s butt rock. He currently holds the award for ‘Best Laugh’ because it pierces the sky and whoever had the privilege of making it happen suddenly feels like God’s gift to comedy. Aron Hawkins – more like Aron Rawk-ins.
Skimmy is one of seven siblings, so she has fit effortlessly into this crazy, stupid fambly. On the outside, she seems to be a regular, pretty blonde from Nashville, TN – but then you find out she’s training for a real-life marathon and makes her own nut milk at home and has already written/released an album. Feel free to dish the sarcasm, but just know that she’ll deliver back tenfold something you absolutely weren’t ready for. Come in sometime, and Kim will make you all the pretty cortados!
