Meet the Family


Mobjack Bay Coffee Roasters was born in Virginia in 2007 and is lovingly cultivated by owners, Celeste and Jo Gucanac.  


Celeste and Jo pride themselves on providing an exceptional quality product for their customers to enjoy. They purchase from small plantations with specific certifications and create unique roasting profiles to bring out the best flavors in the beans they purchase. They believe you shouldn't drink coffee just to drink should drink coffee to love it.

“We strive to connect the things we are passionate about in life to our daily activities. It is important to us to bring our love of the water and American History into our work. Our customers can experience our coffee and cafe as a complete realization of our passions.”

Celeste and Jo and their three children give their time, energy and a portion of their profits to preserve and restore the Historic Cole Digges House in Yorktown Colonial National Historical Park, where Mobjack Bay Coffee is located. 


Mobjack Bay Coffee Roasters remains focused on living a life that embraces a love for very good coffee, the water, American history and supporting their community. They plan and orchestrate local clean up projects and support local organizations in their outreach programs as well.


Learning more about coffee still remains a passion for Celeste and Jo. It is fascinating to consider the number of hands that touch coffee before anyone brews a pot; and it is evident that coffee is the cornerstone of life for people, families, and communities. Celeste and Jo understand the importance of what that morning cup of coffee means to everyone from the plantation to the cup in your hand.

 Mobjack Bay Coffee Roasters is always looking for like-minded businesses and people to join in the efforts.

Contact Celeste if you are interested in getting involved or have helpful suggestions to keep efforts moving along.
