Logan Klein

Assistant Manager and Roaster

Logan is a native Texan who lives on the fringe; balancing somewhere between kilos of caffeine and Dali-pop daydreams. His thumbs are green, creativity levels are high and he is willing to travel at the drop of a hat. Adaptation and culinary creations are only some of the great things that come naturally to Logan.

Jessica Gardner

Office Manager/Social Media Rockstar/Customer Relations Specialist

Jes manages the office, social media accounts, customer accounts and is the liaison to our grocery store relationships. She lives a vegan lifestyle, with the dream to open her own vegan bakery where she might even serve coffee, if Joe ever lets her leave Third Coast. When she's not answering the phone at the shop, you can find her jogging town lake or hanging out with her two cats and one dog at home.

Andres Torres

Production Manager

Andres comes to us from eight years working retail. He does his best to keep the production area in line while also learning as much as possible about owning a small business. He hopes to one day start a small roasting company of his own. When he's not at work he's usually playing his drums, going to see live shows, or hanging out with friends and his dog. 

 

Jeremy Garcia

Assistant Production Manager

Jeremy followed the yellow brick road until it lead him to Third Coast Coffee. As much as Jeremy loves coffee, he never thought he'd work in the coffee roasting business. At Third Coast he's gained experience and knowledge of coffee he wouldn't have gotten anywhere else. Now he assists in production management and oversees our ¬°FRIOS MIO! cold brew coffee creation. 

 

Michael Munoz

Production Specialist/Assistant

Michael continues his caffeinated pilgramage from years of barista service to the land of production. He loves sunny weather, unwashed coffees, sour ales and a wide array of music. Some say he's more junkie than student, but he keeps on pushing in his everloving coffee quest. One day he hopes to know all of the secrets of the coffee biz.
