Trager Brothers Coffee at Oakhurst Cafe

local, organic, and all in the family

Wake up and smell the espresso. And scones.

Wake up and smell the espresso. And scones.


In addition to the carefully crafted, locally sourced meals we serve at the Oakhurst Cafe, we’re proud to make the star of our coffee bar Trager Brothers Coffee, a family-run business based in nearby Nelson County.

The Trager brothers are John, Kem, and lifelong friend Doug, all of whom fell in love with great coffee while living in Seattle. More than 20 years ago, the three young hopefuls spent their life savings on an espresso cart and packed their bags for humble Charlottesville, Virginia. They set up shop on the University of Virginia Corner and quickly became favorites among the students and locals alike. Since 2007, the brothers have operated their micro-roastery from the beautiful countryside of Nellysford.
