Rise Up Coffee has been an independent small-batch coffee roaster and retailer since March 2005. Rise Up originated from an explosive combination of ambition and circumstance. Owner Tim Cureton had what would prove to be a life changing coffee experience while traveling home from the Peace Corps service. His love affair with great coffee had begun.
What started as a coffee trailer in a parking lot has evolved into three iconic locations, staffed by over thirty amazing people! Among them is Co-Owner and General Manager, Noah Kegley who joined the company in 2010.
In 2012, with an intention to engage and captivate, Rise Up opened a coffee roastery in Easton, MD. In a former gas station built in the 1920′s, the artfully renovated space was designed to show off the world of coffee, from crop to cup. The diversity of coffee cultures and complexity of taste are on display daily.
In my opinion Rise Up Coffee is hands down one of the coolest companies to work for in Maryland. Although I now live in the Philadelphia region, I still get an overwhelming rush of home town pride as I anticipate our first retail offering hitting the shelves later this year.
