rising star coffee
I am currently sitting in Rising Star Coffee sipping a mocha wondering if I’ve possibly found the cutest coffee shop in Cleveland? Perhaps in the world? I had a couple hours to kill after work and decided to treat myself to a good cup of coffee (…not a good glass of wine which is weird for me, I know). Anyways, I mentioned a couple weeks ago how eager I was to try this place and so far, it has not disappointed.
What I didn’t love:
- I wish there were a couple more tables. I am currently sitting on a little bench because the full table and bar stools they have are taken. I could totally see myself plopping down here for a couple hours on a weekend if they had additional seating. (Update: I have secured a table. Life is good.)
What I love:
- The music. It’s calming and soothing kind of like spa music. Paired with a great cup of coffee, I am instantly free of any stress I came in with.
- The atmosphere is so interesting. They definitely take a scientific approach to making coffee…it kind of looks like a lab in here. I would love to learn more about what all these contraptions are for…
- The mocha! It’s the bomb and it had a little design in the foam which is always fun. The barista (who was awesome BTW) also told me they use local milk to make all of their mochas which I think is pretty cool and is apparent in the fresh taste.
Well, Rising Star Coffee, it’s official. I love you. And I will be back soon.

Just so you know, we are moving the roasters out of the cafe very soon. Then we will add tables and chairs to the Hingetown shop. This summer you can stop by our “coffee lab” that will be in the new roastery.
Glad you enjoyed it!

So awesome – I can’t wait to see the new set up and visit the coffee lab. Everything you guys are doing is just so cool. Thanks for stopping by!
