We love coffee – the way it energizes us, makes us feel connected and fuels our minds. Tired of an average cup of joe, we began the search for something more. We started cold brewing in our Manhattan apartments with a mission to make the best coffee imaginable.

After sampling beans and roasts from all over the world, we created a cold brew coffee that our friends and families loved. Then and now, we use organic coffee grown at high-altitude in Peru's Chanchamayo Valley, giving our cold brew its naturally sweet, bold and chocolate-y taste. But we didn't stop there. The quest continued.

We started conditioning our cold brew with nitrogen. The nitrogen infusion perfectly complemented our cold brew by giving it a beautiful cascade, creamy head and refreshingly smooth finish. It was awesome. 

And, that's how RISE was born. Our first and current nitro cold brew coffee – now known as “Original Black” – was a game changer. We had to share it with the world, so we started carrying kegs on our back and walking around New York City, sampling RISE with as many people as possible. 

As soon as we started serving RISE on tap, people from all over started asking us for more.  To keep up with demand, we moved our production facilities from our kitchens to a garage and on to to the brewery where we brew today.

We continue to brew RISE with the freshest organic ingredients we can source and always strive to create the best tasting beverages on the market.
