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. Alyssa began working for Governor's Cup in the beginning of her junior year of high school. It wasn't long before she fell in love with the space, customers and the energy of it all. Shortly there after she became the manager, that is when things began to really shift for her. Alyssa knew in her gut that one day it would be hers. After a failed attempt to purchase at 19 she had decided to stop working at Gov Cup and tried to forget about the place. She couldn't shake it. Time went by and another purchase attempt failed yet again. Two years later she got a phone call from someone who would end up being her investing partner. The business was for sale yet again. Less than 3 weeks later on December 1st, 2010 the dream finally became a surreal reality. Fast forward a few years and Alyssa and her husband Evan own and operate The Governor’s Cup. More often than not with their now 2 daughters either strapped to them in a baby carrier or helping with little tasks like wiping tables and sweeping. We absolutely love what we do and have invested our hearts in downtown Salem. We hope that you love our little cafe, bar and music venue just as much as we do!
