We all love a good cup of Joe. What if I told you that each and every one of these coffee companies help support our men and women who serve or have served in the military? With every purchase of their products, either part, or all of their proceeds go to help military members or charities.

If you are looking for ways to support those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms, check out these coffee companies. Some of them are right here in Boston, and some are across the nation. But, all of them deliver and some of them even deliver to our active duty military members who are deployed overseas!

Share the good news and buy a bag for yourself and someone you love this year. And most importantly, THANK YOU to our troops!

Why I Love Coffee And The Troops

There are three things you need to know about me:

  • I love our troops. I never knew how much I loved the troops until I went over to Afghanistan to perform for our men and women in uniform in November of 2010. After that trip I was inspired to write songs and record an album in support of their mission and lifestyle. I released that project called “Heroes & Hometowns” and was shocked to see how many wonderful performance opportunities came from it! I had my Grand Ole Opry debut, I performed songs live on Fox & Friends and even sang at the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea!
  • I will do everything I can to support the troops. I have partnered with and performed for multiple military charities. And whenever I find a company that is veteran-owned or military-supported, I want to do what I can to support them.
  • I love a good cup of coffee.  Doesn’t everyone? I mean, it’s ok if you don’t. There are other ways to support the troops. But if you LOVE coffee and LOVE our troops, then consider buying coffee directly from these following coffee brands.
