Our Story

 

From the very beginning, Thump has been guided by a fundamental desire to create both a better cup of coffee and a better experience for the people who drink it.

The desire to marry together these seemingly disparate and unrelated philosophies came from the recognition that it was desperately needed in our industry. We saw that the coffee industry lacked providers who were passionate about both sides: not just the cup, but the cup and the human being hoping to be moved by it.

Over time, we’ve developed a strong reputation for the quality of our craft.

We want everything we make, everything we provide to our people, to be worth more than what they pay for it. Not simply because of our care for craft, but because of our care for them. Don’t miss what we are saying - we believe in our work, and we believe in perfecting our product. If we’re not striving to be the best - we don’t want to play the game. But why do we play the game? We play it for our people. Our craft is not the most important thing in our world: our people are.

We know coffee is just a beverage. Even so, we believe to our core that it is capable of amazing things.

We’ve seen firsthand how one cup can change the life of the one who drinks it.
