Established all the way back in 1885, Rex Coffee began when founder Herman Hulman sought to create higher quality coffee for his business. Once a green coffee bean supplier and roasting equipment were secured, Rex Coffee began selling coffee in the eastern United States from Chicago all the way down to Louisville and St. Louis.

"Herbert Thannhaeuser was born in 1898 in Berlin. He completed an apprenticeship as a painter of porcelain and then worked as a display artist at Ullstein. He next worked as a graphic designer at various Berlin studios and in 1925 started to work as an artistic advisor at the firm Max Krause and several other printing houses.
