“A friend of ours told us once: When you put people over profit, you always profit. This proves to be true in every aspect.” – Gio, Lift Co-owner

Lift Coffee Roasters is more than just your run of the mill coffee shop. It is a full-service farm to store roaster that brings fresh quality coffee straight to its customers.

Lift took flight with a passion for good coffee and community outreach. Today, the roaster holds over three separate locations all of which offer a unique approach to coffee curating.

Lift was born out of a genuine interest in social impact and precision. Our “seed-to-cup” approach allows us to partner with farmers that share similar values.

Why the name “Lift”?

Our coffee bar is made out of an airplane that crashed in Riverside many years ago, but more importantly; coffee literally gives you a lift!

Our coldbrew!

What is the most rewarding aspect of running Lift?

Creating platforms for local artists!

What do you think sets you apart from your average coffee shop?  

Being sensitive to dietary restrictions, investing in the community and developing healthy partnerships with farmers that share our core values.

We love that you showcase local artists! Is this something Lift wants to continue doing?

Being born and raised in Riverside, it was a no brainer investing in art and innovation. We enjoy creating platforms for local artist!
