In 2011, Troy and Michelle Kooper began a learning odyssey from their humble home in Austin, Texas. They began exploring a do-it-yourself lifestyle and relying on skill acquisition as much as possible. They learned to grow food, and make their own toothpaste, deodorant, and laundry soap from a few simple ingredients. Michelle taught herself to cook, eventually reaching the gourmet level. Then a fascination with flavor and aroma exploration set in.
They began learning to make the drinks they loved, whiskey and coffee. Whiskey was the first challenge; they learned how to mash, ferment and distill rye whiskey in their kitchen in Austin. They've since moved to the Texas countryside and started the Kooper Family Whiskey Company, where they produce some of the best boutique Bourbon and Rye whiskeys in Texas.
Moving on to Coffee, Troy and Michelle expanded their sensory and flavor blending capabilities; they dug into coffee roasting and exploring coffee's intricate flavors and aromas. Sourcing, roasting, cupping, and blending coffee fell right in with their patient do-it-yourself sensory practices.
Together with their two children, Troy and Michelle are chasing their coffee-making dreams, founding Kooper Family Coffee with a simple Mission: Craft small-batch gourmet coffee that makes Texans happy.
Kooper Family's success is measured in the gratification of every Texan that seeks an elevated taste experience and finds it in our small-batch, craft coffee.
100% family-owned and operated.
