ABOUT KUJU

Founded by two Eagle Scout brothers who got tired of instant coffee while camping, Kuju Coffee is a pour over coffee brand on a mission to provide incredible coffee experiences that inspire people to Be Recreated. On that camping trip, brothers Jeff & Justin found themselves surrounded by the most beautiful scenery - sweeping sunrises, golden mesas, and awe-inspiring constellations, but their coffee didn’t match up. So they set out on a journey to find a better way and created the Pocket PourOver®️ – the original single-serve pour over in the US.  Today, Kuju can be found in retailers nationwide such as REI, Whole Foods, Sprouts, Bass Pro Shops, Amazon, and www.kujucoffee.com
