We believe strongly in our community. UP North Roast is built and headquartered here in Escanaba. If you ever have any questions, feel free to stop by. We would love to provide a cup of our coffee to you and chat.


Most hobbies UP North usually include fishing, hiking, kayaking, and even making maple syrup–ours was roasting coffee.

In 2013 we started roasting our recipes with an old popcorn popper in our hometown in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. After sharing it with our friends and family, we saw the demand for quality small-batch coffee rise like the Great Lakes after the snow melts. 

As a small family-owned business in Escanaba, Michigan, we focus on giving our customers the best freshly roasted coffee beans on the market. Since our start in 2013, we have always roasted only what we need, meaning our beans go from roaster to your cup in a matter of days. Our husband and wife team are the only roasters at UP North Roast. This guarantees a consistent quality roast in every bag–never burnt, always flavorful. And our high barrier, ziplock-sealed bags preserve the freshness of our coffee for long-lasting enjoyment.

What started as a hobby has now become a full-time gig thanks to our loyal customers who trust us to start their day off right. 

Although we have become a household favorite in Michigan, one thing hasn’t changed; we’re just a couple of Yoopers who enjoy roasting quality coffee. So wherever you are we hope our coffee always greets you like a warm welcome from UP North. 


The name UP North Roast is a play on words of the“U.P.” which is short for the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. We still pronounce our name as “up north” because being “up north” could look a little different for someone living outside of Michigan. But usually has the same connotation of getting outside, unwinding, and connecting with nature. There’s no better way to express the Upper Peninsula than that–and we want our customers to feel that every time they have our coffee.

Amazing coffee. I am completely hooked on their organic medium roast. I stopped in on a whim and got a cup of coffee and I was thoroughly impressed. I’m a big coffee drinker and this is hands-down my favorite coffee! I’ll be back to stock up!

There are many big-name coffee brands out there: Hills Bros., Maxwell House, Folgers. UP North Roast takes them into the ring and with a one-two combo, single-round KOs them all. I do a morning Twitch chatting show, and this brand coffee gives me the boost I need to get through a 5-8 hour stream. Whether it's the Brazilian, the Colombian, Cherry UP, or (my favorite,) the Peppermint Stick, there's never a wrong option (except, maybe, the Pumpkin Spice. But, that's a matter of opinion. LOL!)
