Thump Coffee – Denver CO

Thump Coffee was born in Bend, Oregon. The founder and owner is a man named Bobby Grover, but you won’t find that on the company’s website.

Instead, you’ll find information about an establishment that approaches the coffee business as being as much about the drinkers as the drinks themselves.

It’s Kind Of Like the CHEERS, “Where Every Body Knows Your Name”

This is the sort of place that wants you on a first name basis with the management. The general manager of the Denver area shops is introduced as Andy.

The kitchen and bakery manager is David. Their about pages highlight things about their personal lives. David, for instance, plays bass in a band called “Boot Gun”.

A Trendy Cafe With 2 Locations Serving Denver

The two Denver locations exemplify the Thump ethos in their stripped down, loft style designs. The Capitol Hill location features reclaimed wood flooring, exposed ceiling beams and conduits, yet still manages to look elegant and trendy.

The Broadway location maintains the spare loft stylings, but is flooded with natural lighting through the large windows wrapping around the establishment. A bar around the perimeter takes advantage of the city view.

Seating in both locations, whether via long benches, bars, or simply close quarters encourages interaction among the patrons. Thump has a laid back, inclusive style and attitude.

The Coffee Is Sourced From Around the World

Drinks on offer are wide ranging. The coffee options are unique, like the washed Ethiopian Kolla Bocha. Thump sources their coffee from around the world, searching for interesting blends and creating partnerships with local growers.

Get Coffee Delivered To Your Home

They sell bags of their blends as well, if you want to take them home to brew. You can also order them online if you aren’t able to make the trip. Thump even has a wholesale program that provides nationwide, scheduled deliveries to other shops. They even offer training for fledgeling baristas.

They Offer More Tea Options Than Coffee

They also have a large selection of teas. In fact, when looking at their menu the tea selection far exceeds that of the coffee, many of these listed as Fair Trade and Certified Organic. For Vegan customers there are soy and oat milk alternatives.

The Food Options Are Hearty and Appeal To Vegetarians Too

Beyond the drinks, Thump has a small brunch menu. The food is hearty, yet simple, with sandwiches making up the bulk of the selections.

It changes, but at one point in 2019 the sandwich menu was Pesto Turkey, Veggie, and Curried Tuna. There are always salad selections as well, and seasonal granola with fruit and yogurt. Vegetarians are not overlooked here.

Thump Coffee Supports Their Community Whole-Heartedly

Yet the food and drink remains only part of the story for Thump. They are partnered with brand ambassadors to help spread their message of encouragement and support for living a full life. Ambassadors like 92 year old Frank Moore, avid fly fisher, or Josh Amberger, professional triathlete, exemplify what Thump is about.

Thump curates a positive and inclusive experience in their establishments, but they are equally committed to providing world class drinks. Judging from their continuing success, and rave reviews, they are succeeding at creating a special environment for coffee and the people that drink it.
