The Governor's Cup Coffee Roasters has been serving the Salem area since 1991. The cafe has seen several short-lived owners over the years. I, Alyssa, began working for Governor's Cup in the beginning of my junior year of high school. It wasn't long before I fell in love with the space, customers and the energy of it all. Shortly there after I became manager and that is when things began to really shift for me. I knew in my gut that one day it would be mine. After a failed attempt to purchase at 19 I decided to stop working there and tried to forget about the place. But I just couldn't shake it. Time went by and after another failed attempt at purchasing I gave up on it once again. Then 2 years later, I got a phone call from someone who would end up being my investing partner. The business was for sale yet again. He knew my passion for Gov Cup, my work ethic and thought I was worth investing in. Less than 3 weeks later on December 1st, 2010 my dream finally became a surreal reality. Fast forward a few years and and I now own and operate it with my husband Evan. We absolutely love what we do and have invested our hearts in downtown Salem. We hope that you love our little cafe just as much as we do!
