Coffee connoisseurs sing the praises of Rising Star baristas, who are as knowledgeable as their keenly sourced coffee is potent. An anchor of the freshly minted Hingetown zone, the renovated Ohio City firehouse was one of the first places on the scene to satisfy a caffeine jones. Each cup is meticulously brewed to order using beans straight from the onsite roaster. The results are nothing short of the perfect pour over imbued with nuanced, undiluted flavor. We're not surprised that after not quite two years in business, the successful shop already has expanded to Little Italy.
