About Us

In the late 2000s, we started talking with anyone who would listen about the inextricable link between coffee and cycling. On long rides, during coffee shop stops, we talked and talked about cycling and coffee. Coffee and cycling. All. The. Time.

One groggy Saturday morning while lining up for the 6:30am race, we we're sucking a caffeinated gel and we thought, "Wouldn't a doppio be SO MUCH BETTER?" As we trained and raced in Prospect Park, Central Park, and Floyd Bennett Field, we kept thinking about how to deliver great coffee to all cycling fanatics: commuters, racers, randonneurs, MTB, CX, fixies, track, it didn't matter. We were all bike geeks and we are all coffee geeks too.

In summer 2012, we took the plunge and started preparations for the launch of Grimpeur Bros. Specialty Coffee. Our coming out party was at CrossVegas / Interbike where we launched with two espressos and two single origins.

Fast forward to today where Grimpeur Bros. Specialty Coffee:
  • Roasts-to-order in New York AND Texas, shipping coffee weekly and monthly across the U.S.
  • Runs an espresso and single origin lineup of 8-15 different coffees and espressos at any one time,
  • Hosts coffee shop pop-ups regionally and nationally at cycling events such as Cross Worlds, Interbike, Cross Nats, the Breck Epic, Cross Vegas, and various TXCX races.
  • Supports and sponsors numerous pro, elite, and club teams and individual racers including Mo Bruno Roy & Matt Roy/MM Racing, Katie Araujo, Lisa Leonard, Jeremy Durrin of Neon Velo Cycling Team, Jenna Page Greaser, Allen Krughoff, Kat Daley, LWC Field Marshals, Firefly Adventure Team, Radical Media Women's Racing, This Team Saves Lives, Vagabond Cycling, Team Yacht Club, The AmyD Foundation, and Leave It On The Road.
