I love coffee, good causes, and Tom Hanks. So, it’s fantastic to have the triple threat of things I love all in one blog post.
If you haven’t heard about it yet, I’m excited to share some info about Hanx Coffee. Nope. It’s not spelled wrong. It’s Hanx and not Hanks, but it IS Hanks.
Beloved actor and humanitarian Tom Hanks launched his own line of coffee called Hanx at the end of 2022. The delicious blend of Arabica beans is guaranteed to give you a smooth and energizing taste, plus it will also help support veterans in need. That’s because all proceeds from Hanx sales go to charity organizations that assist former military members.
Tom Hanks has long advocated for those who have served in the armed forces. He regularly works with charities and speaks out about veteran issues. So it makes sense that he’d want to use his influence to do good through something as simple as coffee. The new brand will surely please both fans of the actor and coffee drinkers. And that’s not only because it’s delicious but because everyone can feel great knowing that a Hanx purchase is going towards a good cause.
However, just because it’s a charitable endeavor doesn’t mean that Hanx can’t become your new go-to for java, too. The line-up isn’t expansive. But of the three roasts, Tom’s Morning Magic Blend is flying off the virtual shelves.
What Types of Coffee Does Hanx Offer?
Unfortunately (for me), Hanx isn’t offering a line of Nespresso pods. However, it does stock the following:
- Keurig capsules
- Coffee sticks
If you’re unfamiliar with coffee sticks, check out our coffee sticks blog post, as the concept is taking off like crazy. Empty a coffee stick into boiling water, and you’ve got a cup that’s just about as good as drip, Keurig, or other methods. It’s instant coffee for the 21st century and certainly doesn’t taste like it.
With names like First Class Joe, you’ll want to crank up the Andrews Sisters and head to a USO Dance after you take a little virtual shopping trip on gethanx.com. But it’s Tom’s Morning Magic Blend that’ll really transport you to the 40s. It’s a light roast with nostalgic malt and cocoa. And, as I mentioned, it’s the top seller on the website, so grab it when you can.
- First Class Joe – in medium or dark roast
- Tom’s Morning Magic Blend
- Sgt. Peppermint
First Class Joe
Hanx’s First Class Joe is available in a medium or dark roast. It’s labeled as strong and smooth and comes in all three varieties – ground, Keurig, and coffee sticks.
Tom’s Morning Magic Blend
Like First Class Joe, you can get Tom’s Morning Magic Blend in all three coffee-making options. But again, it’s not always in stock.
If you’re a fan of flavored coffee, you’ll appreciate Sgt. Peppermint, a light roast with a hint of mint. Unfortunately, Sgt. Peppermint is available for Keurig only. I’ll keep an eye out for any product line expansions, though.
