From an Office Lobby to Fueling the Conservative Revolution
Thrasher Coffee started like many other good ideas: as a hobby.
A couple of guys at the office were tired of delivery truck coffee. Personal experience showed anything found in the local supermarkets and coffee shops was sub par. And who wants to drive to sit in a drive-thru line at S---BUCKS to spend a lot of those bucks on an over-roasted month-old cuppa?
Freshly roasted, freshly ground coffee tasted far superior to everything they tried. So they began experimenting with roasters, a variety of green beans, burr grinders, and French presses. It was soooo good. The smell would waft down the hallways til the boss couldn't be satisfied with anything but "Eric's coffee."
So, we refined our choice of beans and our roasting techniques, and in 2014, established the Thrasher Coffee Company to share our small batch craft coffee with the world. Seth took the company to a whole new level, and many of you know him from local events and being our roastmaster for the past few years.
"I don't even need cream and sugar," was an oft-repeated phrase and we loved hearing it. Others even said they had no idea coffee could have the same kind of "tasting notes" you'll find in wine and beer tastings!
While everyone who tried Thrasher loved it, it wasn't until we made a decision in 2018, shortly after Sarah Huckabee Sanders' "Red Hen" incident. We realized the far-reaching enthusiasm of President-supporting patriotic Americans was so strong, they were crying out for companies to walk with them and wave the Trump Train flag right alongside.
So we answered the cry. Now, not only are our coffees amazing, they burst with MAGA-pride.
Here at Thrasher, we don’t have warehouses full of months-old, shrink-wrapped beans shriveling up waiting to ship to a big box warehouse and get put on a shelf hoping you'll order.
When you order from Thrasher Coffee, you're going to enjoy such a freshly roasted cup it will make you glad all over again that you woke up another day in Trump Nation.
Why call it Thrasher?
The Brown Thrasher is the state bird of Georgia, which also happens to be where Thrasher Coffee is located – in the hills and dales of Paulding County, about 45 minutes west of the bustle of Atlanta.
We’re proud to model ourselves after this bird – an aggressive defender of its nest, but also one of the most accomplished songsters which may sing more than 1,100 different song types.
You'll find our coffee explodes with nearly as many flavors, all while supporting the efforts of our President to keep our country (and our borders) secure.
Why would you "alienate" people by inserting politics?
Glad you asked. Truthfully, we never intended for Thrasher to be a political company, or to be anything more than simply Patriotic. But we've seen that the support for Liberal values and mindsets and philosophies and candidates has become excessive in the marketplace today.
If S---BUCKS can openly support and monetarily assist Hillary's campaign; if Big Tech can censor Conservative media; if the Red Hen can kick Sarah Sanders from her dinner table: why can't Thrasher Coffee say we support our POTUS?
Also, it didn't hurt our business one bit....in fact, Thrasher Coffee was part of a company conglomerate that achieved Inc. 5000 in 2019 due to the change.
So thanks for sticking with us. We're on a mission to keep America great -- one cup of coffee at a time.
Why is there air in my bag?
We don’t add nitrogen to our bags, so as they are being shipped to you, the beans will be releasing carbon dioxide in what is called the “degassing” process. This is what freshly roasted beans do and our bags are designed to keep outside air out, so the only place for the C02 to go is … nowhere. This means that as soon as you get your coffee bags out of the box, you’ll need to release the C02. You can do this by simply opening the bag, or by using our recommended method of gently pressing the bag and forcing the C02 out through the bag’s air valve. You’ll experience a huge blast of delish fresh coffee aroma. Enjoy!
How should I prepare Thrasher Coffee?
Generally, the Pour-Over method is held in the highest regard, though it is a bit more involved. French Press is another excellent option, and will provide much more flavor over a drip coffeemaker. Thrasher Coffee will taste great in any coffee making device; part of the joy of coffee is crafting your favorite method. Experiment and find what hits the spot for you! We also provide K-compatible cups, but please be aware that the freshness of K-compatible cups decreases.
Are your decaf beans chemically decaffeinated?
The only decaf beans we use go through the Swiss water process to naturally decaffeinate the beans.
Are Thrasher's coffees organic or fair trade?
In our opinion, all of the larger certification programs have flaws and limitations in what they represent about the product and what value they actually bring to the consumer -- or the farmers. We believe a better approach for true and durable sustainability is to build the consumer market around exceptionally high quality coffees, sourced from the actual producers who are putting the most work into the long-term benefits of their crops and communities, irrespective of expensive third-party certifications (such as “Organic,” “Fair Trade,” etc.). We work with one of the best sources in the country who work directly with the farmers in Central and South America, Indonesia, and Africa to provide the highest quality beans to us and the most profit to the farmers. Win-win.
