    Kick Butt Coffee was conceived by Thomas R. Gohring in the wee morning hours of April, 25th, 2007.

The seed was planted. The fact that there are no coffee shops in the Airport Boulevard corridor, in combination with having a friend, Mary Grabhorn, who worked part time at another local coffee shop contributed to the idea taking root. Adding a special menu of beer, wine and coffee drinks with liquor, is the part of our slogan, "get your butt kicked" (see bottom of page). The idea of comedy came from him traveling in New York City and how the comedy clubs tend to be small venues with many comics in contrast to having a headliner, feature and opener. And, of course, how can you have a Kick Butt Coffee shop in Austin, Texas without some Kick Butt Music events!
