King of Clubs started in the summer of 2017 in Williamsburg, founded by Lance, a William and Mary alumnus and Marine Corps Veteran; and Cesar, a William and Mary MBA student and Peace Corps Volunteer, under the name Mandela Coffee, with a social mission to give back to water projects in Africa. It started out by one simple premise- providing freshly roasted coffee with a humanitarian cause.
One year later, Cesar returned to California, and Lance continued with the business. Lance changed the name of the company to King of Clubs, switched focus to selling locally, and expanded the product line to include cold brew coffee, nitro coffee, bottling, and single serve coffee. King of Clubs is the first producer of cold brew and nitro coffee in Williamsburg. In the summer of 2018, the company added accounts, gathered a following at local farmers markets, and laid the groundwork to opening its first retail location.
Kombucha and Jun, beverages Lance first made in his kitchen, were added to the lineup in early 2019. King of Clubs received its brewery license in May 2019, and plans to begin producing sour bourbon barrel aged beers made with kombucha and jun, with a 4-5 percent alcohol content in July/August.
