I grew up in the real estate industry, and my father was one of Oregon’s most well-respected real estate appraisers. Dinner table conversations as a child often involved discussions of cost per square foot, valuation and comparable sales. Fast forward a few decades and it appears that those conversations, although seemingly inconsequential at the time, helped lead me to this field and planted the seeds that grew into my passion for real estate.

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.
