If you think America isn’t still a land of limitless opportunity, I’ve got a coffee shop you should visit.

It’s got a great name (from the founder’s grandfather, who was Noble Dukes [Ed.: That is quite a name!]), a great story, and a great location.

But perhaps most important of all, Ashland’s Noble Coffee Roasting has great coffee.

In five short years, husband and wife team Jared and Carolyn Rennie have built a coveted west coast brand and one of Ashland’s most appealing coffee shops, all the while giving a lot back to the community. Located just east of the main drag in the cool Fourth Street area, Noble’s world headquarters is the place to be on any given morning. And it’s hard to believe it has only been around for five years.

Noble is a great example of what is possible with vision, passion – and a never ending supply of caffeine.

So what’s your big dream?

Because it’s going to be five years from now in about five minutes…
