About Ember+FORGE

Ember+Forge was founded with the purpose of creating a space to build community, connect, and share ideas over high-quality coffee locally-roasted by Happy Mug Coffee in Edinboro, PA. Customers are encouraged not to just come in for coffee, but to also create dialog with their neighbors and friends. Ember+Forge aims to grow as the hub of the downtown community.

The building's history as a chandlery, a place where candles were made and sold, forms the "ember" in the shop’s name, while the city's history in manufacturing forms the "forge.” There is a deeper meaning to Ember+Forge - the City of Erie is currently an ember – a fire that has been left to fade, but can be easily turned back into a roaring fire. To do so, we must all forge ahead towards a new and flourishing Erie. Ember+Forge plays a key role in this movement.
