Our Team- a passion that goes far beyond coffee...

John Dixon- owner

With a passion that originally began watching his mother grill burgers and steaks in his backyard, John always knew he wanted to go into the Food Service industry. He cooked for two years at a local steakhouse where he perfected the grilling of a steak. He soon began working as a barista with us in 2016. In 2017 he discovered coffee roasting, and how in a sense, it was similar to grilling a steak. Both an art and a science, he fell in love with roasting, and soon developed a new passion for the coffee industry. He seeks to serve the community through the Cairn by building relationships, engaging with customers, supporting the RAC and serving the freshest coffee in town.


Raymond is one of our baristas. Hard working, loyal and a word I am making up right now - goofentagious. The kid is so goofy that its contagious. Raymond enjoys ordering food off of Grubhub, browsing the inter webs, and probably Steven King. If you see him at Little Caesars, it’s because he has an evil twin brother with a plan to dominate Winchester.

Paul Rowlett - Barista

If you recognize Paul, it is because he volunteered with us for three years before becoming an employee of the Cairn. Paul is a car aficionado. In his spare time he enjoys working on his old Jeep truck. If you’re not enthralled in a conversation about cars, or video games, or a video from Youtube, are you really talking to Paul?

SHelda MILLER - baking extraordinaire

What we do at the Cairn would not be possible without the devoted lady that give her time and effort to make sure that we always have cheesecakes, pies, cakes, dessert bars, and cookies available to our guests. Shelda is one of the greatest chefs we have ever experienced. Her extraordinary talent proves handy when we get a call to cater events such as weddings, birthday parties, or graduation parties. A military-wife and mother, when her arms were not full with babes, she spent her free time baking.
