Our Philosophy about coffee is simple. Buy dang good coffee and pay the farmer and the producer enough money to live and maybe even enjoy life. That’s it. Our coffee isn’t fair trade, free trade, direct trade, or any other model. Our coffee is Relationship Coffee. We know who we buy coffee from, and we know what makes their coffee unique, and we want to share that with you.

That means that when we roast, we roast to highlight the decisions of the farmers and the producers, to make sure that their personality and hard work comes through in your cup. Our coffees are sweet, lively, bold and clean.

    We are happy to say that all of our coffees are now certified Kosher!

If you want more information on any of our coffees and producing partners just let us know.

Brandon Riggs

Brandon Riggs

Coffee Director

Brandon Riggs joins us from Stockton Graham and Co. With 17 years of industry experience, he is a great fit for Rising Star Coffee Roasters. He has made numerous origin trips with brokers to solidify relationships with farmers and importers. He created and implemented a series of training programs at the roasting facility. These programs include cupping protocol, blend and roast development, and blending science with sensory tools to evaluate and maintain quality. He has a history of melding technology with his hands on skills to produce consistent high quality results. Also during this time, he began to develop a specific quality control system to maintain consistent standards for customers’ coffee selections.

In other words, the dude loves coffee, and loves to share what he knows with others. If you are a coffee geek, watch for educational events with this guy!

Gary "Kim" Jenkins

Founder

Gary Jenkins, Kim to his friends, is a retired rocket scientist who took his immense brain to the world of coffee. For about 20 years, Kim was roasting coffee as a hobby in his garage. Today, he oversees the roasting operations and we still use the roaster he played on all those years.

When Kim is not in the roastery, you might find him restoring a vintage aircraft or working around his farm in Spencer, Ohio.

Robert Stockham

Robert Stockham

General Manager

Robert’s love affair with coffee began over 30 years ago with a shot of espresso from Monorail Espresso-a cart that lived under the monorail line in Seattle. Since then, he has worked in the coffee joints and food venues for his entire life. When he found Rising Star Coffee Roasters, he knew he had found home.

A transplant to Cleveland since 2000, Robert came here from Portland, Oregon. Proud to call Cleveland his home, he has long been an advocate for the city that is on the rise. He is an advocate for sustainability and local foods.

Kevin Hoffman

Kevin Hoffman

Store Manager-Little Italy

Kevin is a great barista. He came to Rising Star Coffee Roasters to learn more about the craft and to practice his latte art. He has done some awesome work and makes beautiful drinks that are almost too pretty to drink. Not a surprise, because in his off hours, he likes to draw and do other art work. His sense of humor and boundless energy make him fun to hang out with. If you see him, ask about his t-shirts, because they are a little bit of awesome.

Ivy FIlbin

Store Manager-Arcade Downtown

Rising Star Coffee Roasters is lucky to have Ivy leading the team downtown. She is more than a highly skilled barista! She loves animals-especially dogs. When she is not cranking out lattes, she is likely riding her bike or promoting one of the causes that are near to her heart.

Emily Mock

Emily Mock

Operations Manager

Emily started with Rising Star as a barista. Her dedication to craft and outstanding customer service propelled her to management status pretty quickly. She loves dogs and travelling. When she is not working, she is likely studying for law school.

Michele Kilroy

Michele Kilroy

Brand Evangelist

Michele  Kilroy has a couple of degrees under her belt and comes to Rising Star from a winding professional route of finance, real estate development, interior design, sustainability and community networking. Throughout it all, she remains one of Cleveland’s biggest cheerleaders as evidenced by a few of her projects: FREEveland and Cleveland Bench . Connecting Cleveland’s citizens to the region’s best coffee will be Michele’s forte. She is an Irish lass through and through, so it’s no surprise that she is an avid tea drinker. When Michele is not slinging our goods and services, you will find her all over town checking out the newest and coolest happenings in the city. And once you’re “in” with Michele, she might  invite you to call her ‘Killer’.
