As a child I use to drink my mom’s coffee. She always kept Folgers Crystals, which is freeze dried instant coffee made to smell and taste like freshly brewed coffee. Today, I go for something a little different. When it comes to coffee, I seek out fair trade, organic and freshly roasted beans. Rise Up Coffee Roasters in Annapolis Maryland certainly delivers that and more!
The menu consists of iced and hot beverages, muffins and a variety of pastries and quiche. They even serve a protein coffee smoothie. Sounds yummy!
Rise Up Coffee’s philosophy: “The farmer who grew this coffee should receive the glory. We are among the fortunate who get to roast their beautiful coffees and share them with you. By staying committed to the time-honored craft of artisanal coffee roasting, we strive to make them proud”.
I find this appealing because it speaks to the love they have for their craft. A guiding principle like this can only produce one thing. A beautiful cup waiting to be enjoyed:)
Today, I ordered a half sweet dark chocolate mocha latte made with oat milk. It was beyond delicious. Not only that, the barista was very professional and took care in crafting my beverage.
