Battle Buddy Coffee : Whole Beans
By Operation Coffee
About Operation Coffee
Start the conversation with a quality cup of coffee…
By founding Operation Coffee, Wisconsin veteran Sam Floyd (USMC) has truly found his mission. At first, after returning home in 2005 from a tour in Afghanistan, Floyd struggled to adjust to civilian life. Like many veterans navigating their post-military careers, he fought a battle for his mental health and at one point, contemplated taking his own life. Because of his experiences overseas, Floyd felt alienated from his friends and loved ones. Therefore he knew that in order to find happiness at home, rediscovering and pursuing a passion would be essential. That passion? Coffee.
Since Sam had had many impactful conversations over a cup of joe, he decided coffee itself would be his passion. These conversations became the seed for the blossoming idea that would save Floyd’s life — and potentially the lives of other veterans facing the same post-combat mental health challenges.
This is Sam’s newest blend. Contains 100% Arabica coffee. From each bag of Battle Buddy Blend sold he will donate $2.00 directly to Old Glory Honor Flight in Appleton, Wisconsin. To date, Old Glory has taken 5,740 veterans on 63 flights not just to Washington, D.C. but to other places as well including Vietnam and Pearl Harbor.
Looking for a caffeine-free option? Sam makes decaf coffee as well, Columbian Decaf (Ground).
