It’s a Friday afternoon in May. Rise Up Coffee Roasters founder Tim Cureton pulls up to their newest location in Cambridge, MD, with his son and father. It was Grandparents Day at his son’s school, and as usual, Tim has a busy schedule, but he always makes time for his Alma Mater. Family is everything to Tim. Like most, he has many families: he has his family who are relatives, he has his “work/specialty coffee” family, and he has his Salisbury University family.
