About Us

The Guys

Five Watt Coffee was founded by Lee Carter and Caleb Garn in 2014. With similar coffee philosophies, it was only time before they got together to start Five Watt Coffee. Caleb works closely with our General Managers, and Lee oversees the beverage program alongside the Lead Baristas.

The Baristas

We love to get to know everyone that stops by the shop. Don't be surprised if we know your name, remember your regular drink order, or dish out high-fives across the bar. Coffee is about connecting people. 

A Unicorn Named Fred

Over at our Kingfield location, we have a Rent By The Hour Unicorn Stable (it's open tomorrow). Fred The Unicorn is the manager of the stable, and is very friendly. He even loves coffee, too! We're letting him answer your coffee questions on our Facebook page. You ask the questions, he'll give the answers.

Boris Beltrami

The E. Hennepin location lives inside the Miller Textile building, former home of the Miller Bag Company. The building is rich with history, including the story of one very interesting man named Boris! Boris was an eccentric, adventurous, and innovative inventor that was well ahead of his time. Stop by our E. Hennepin location to learn more about him: we've compiled a comic book that shares his story and some of our favorite inventions!
