Our Story

THUNDERKING ☕️ EST 2015

Simply delicious.

That's our motto for good reason. We started Thunderking to make delicious coffee for everyone. You don't need to be a maven because we do all the nerdy work for you. Which brings us to why we started making coffee:

Coffee can be complicated

We never loved how coffee was always portrayed as something that only baristas or coffee elites could understand. It made us feel alienated, turning something that should be simple into a daunting task with a big learning curve.

But we like it simple

In April 2015 we set out on a mission to learn how great coffee is made just the way we like it. It all started with cold brew in Dean's kitchen where we perfected the recipe and shared it with our friends. Everyone's feedback was a "wow, this is like actually tasty," so in May 2015 we bottled our first Black Gold cold brew, and as they say the rest is history.

Simply delicious

We continue to learn everything about sourcing, roasting, and brewing a delicious organic coffee, so you can just grab a bottle or a bag of beans and enjoy. You don't need to be a coffee maven because we do all the nerdy work for you.

This cold brew coffee is strong. You can dilute it, but we don't. And something tells me if you're seeking out small well-crafted cold-brew, you want it strong.  Our nitrogen extracted "Black Gold" is dark and powerful, but still maintains the smoothness that you should expect out of a high quality cold-brewed coffee.

We ship in a special insulated box which allows you to order any quantity from 2 to 10 for one flat shipping rate (you should probably order 10).

 

All cold brew ships on Mondays and Tuesdays via USPS 2 Day Priority Mail in FDA approved insulated carriers to get to you in the freshest and fastest way possible.

With Dark Side of Noon we wanted to give you all the things to love about a dark roast, without any of the burnt ashy stuff. We use Guatemala for notes of butterscotch and dark chocolate then paired it with Ethiopia for the top flavors of peach and white flowers. For good measure, we threw in a dash of Sumatra to fill out the bottom end. Dark Side of Noon is our take on a classic, our nod to those that came before. 

*Don't worry, if you've ordered our flagship blend before, this is what you were ordering. Same party, new outfit.

ThunderKing Purple Reign Merlot Aged Coffee Beans

Regular price $ 19.00 Sale price $ 11.00

Merlot used to be king, but in the last few years, has gotten a bad rap. One unbalanced man’s exclamation in one movie sends people running for the hills. That seems unfair to us. We love merlot, it’s delicious. So we did what we do best and infuse it into a coffee bean. 


We took a natural processed Ethiopian and let it rest with merlot wine to create a surprisingly drinkable coffee. It’s a fruit bomb with notes of blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, and well, all the berries. We often refer to it tasting purple. Now we know purple isn’t a flavor, but when you drink this coffee, you will understand what we mean. 


All hail the king.
