So what’s Thunderbird all about?
Thunderbird is a locally owned café in Austin, Tx. We are located on Manor Road in East Austin, and have been since 2006. We specialize in high-quality direct-trade coffee and delicious house-made breakfast and lunch items.
Is your coffee “fair trade”?
Thunderbird goes much further than fair trade. We work closely with our roaster, Wild Gift Coffee, who uses a more transparent “direct trade” model, which cuts out the middle man, and leaves no questions about how much the farmers and pickers are getting paid for their work. This is an important question, and crucial to Thunderbird’s values.
