Coffee subscription club Lokoly launches in Iowa

Coffee fans looking for the best small batch craft coffee across the country will have a new convenient option to choose from thanks to a new coffee of the month club.

Lokoly Coffee Club is a bi-monthly subscription club offering hard-to-find small-batch coffee made in limited quantities, tucked away in local communities, and delivered in a box curated by the mastermind roaster behind the product. Lokoly Coffee Club is being launched by Iowa State graduates Nicholas Hanstad and Joe Thatcher.

Lokoly Coffee Club will offer members the chance to uncover the best kept coffee secrets and the stories behind them. The club will work with artisan coffee makers to curate a customized box that takes members on a unique experience through their products.

“There’s all this really good coffee that’s hard to find and I want to share it with people all over the country,” said Hanstad. “That’s why we founded Lokoly Coffee Club. We want to tell the stories of these roasters and ultimately share their product.”

Memberships for Lokoly Coffee Club start at $44 every two months. Those who sign up by June 10 will receive Lokoly’s first box.

The first Lokoly Coffee Club box will feature Ross Street Roasting out of Tama, Iowa.

“Now more than ever it’s important for small businesses like ours to be able to offer our products direct-to-consumer online,” said Brian Gumm with Ross Street Roasting in an announcement. “We’re delighted to team up with Lokoly Coffee Club to showcase our products and our story to a wider audience at a particularly crucial time.” 

For its first box, Lokoly is collaborating with with John Bosley of Bozz Prints. Bosley created the design that went on Ross Street Roasting Bag for our exclusively roasted coffee and is also designing a print that will be only available to Lokoly Coffee Club members.
