RISE COFFEE, OUR STORY
Whether it's waking up early, lazy Sunday mornings or a serious case of Monday brain, we believe in the power of high quality, responsibly sourced specialty coffee to be enjoyed in those moments you need it. With a RiSE coffee box subscription, you'll get two new specialty coffee blends from different UK roasters delivered to your door every month. Independent, sustainable with special treats, recipes and more – basically all the good stuff.
MEET BEN & ALICE
Hey! We are Ben and Alice. Far from experts, connoisseurs or single-origin snobs, we're just a couple of coffee lovers who love trying new things. One of our favourite things to do is discover and taste new varieties of coffee. Especially from up-and-coming roasters with a good story to tell. So we've created RiSE to take you on our coffee adventure. We've partnered with some of the most exciting roasters across the UK to showcase and deliver the best coffee you can find. All of the coffee we feature is high quality, 100% Arabica specialty coffee and responsibly sourced. We look for roasters with strong ethics (such as B-Corp, recyclable or compostable packaging, giving back and mission led initiatives).
HOW IT ALL BEGAN…
Where does any great idea begin in 2020? Lockdown, of course. Missing our morning flat whites on the way to work, we went on the hunt for good coffee to drink at home.
Finding our supermarket shelves less than inspiring, we took to Google to find a coffee subscription. There were plenty out there, but none that offered the variety and mix we were looking for. We wanted one monthly subscription that could open up a world of coffee for us to try. We also wanted to find the gems in amongst a sea of endless options! And there started our mission – to bring delicious and exciting varieties of coffee to the homes of coffee lovers like us. We are proud to say we have grown into an exciting coffee club and we even created our own RiSE coffee, Ibanda which sold out!
