Coffee Roasted By Veterans

At Texas Coffee Club you can get your coffee fix and support veterans at the same time. We are very proud that several of our Texas Coffee Club roasters are veterans, and we even have one that is on active duty! These men and women have given themselves to our country and now run small coffee roasting businesses. We’d like to introduce them to you

Their military determination and drive for excellence shows in their business, products, and outlook.  They are great Texans with excellent coffees.

Day Break Coffee Roasters – Lubbock

In Lubbock, Air Force veteran Scott Gloyna is the founder of Daybreak Coffee Roasters.  They are one of the largest coffee roasters in Texas! The owners, Scott and Jeff Fisher (that’s Jeff in the pictures below), make annual trips to South America, Central America, and Africa to see the coffee plantation operations firsthand and sample the products before anything makes its way to you.  They offer 10 coffees plus 15 flavored coffees. 

The Duck – Wichita Falls

In Witchita Falls is Chad Cooper, who is currently serving in the Air Force.  Chad and his wife, Christa, were bitten by the coffee bug and had a desire to get into roasting.  While travelling to their current duty station, they prayed to God and asked for the opportunity to do just that.  Soon after settling in, they were introduced to a couple who happened to be in the business of coffee roasting. It was a God thing.

A deep friendship was forged between the two couples and a lot of coffee roasting know-how was shared. Ultimately Chad and Christa took over the coffee business and The Duck was established.  Chad and Christa have 5 single origin coffees that are all high quality, organic, and fair trade.  As they like to say, “don’t panic, it’s organic.”  

Café Volcan Coffee Roasters – Saginaw

Next is Navy veteran, Jeovany Rodriguez in Saginaw, TX outside the DFW area.  After being medically discharged, he attended Culinary Art School at Cordon Bleu for his love of cooking.  But it was tasting a freshly roasted cup of coffee in El Salvador that really excited him.  So he threw himself into researching coffee and discovered he has a real passion for roasting coffee beans.  

Jeovany starts by getting the highest quality beans and only roasts to order so he can provide the freshest coffee to you and your family.  He offers 14 coffees ranging from decaf to hard core espresso and several flavors.  He even has one that is infused with Kentucky Bourbon. 

Fire Grounds Coffee Company – Dallas

Close by is Paul Clarke & Kyle Lund, co-founders of Fire Grounds Coffee Company in Dallas, TX.  An idea struck Marine veteran and current firefighter Paul Clarke at 2 o’clock in the morning on an ambulance ride. It was his 13th call of the night, there was no sleep in sight, and only mediocre coffee waiting back at the station, when he heard someone say, “Someone should start a coffee company for first responders.” They all agreed, but immediately they were immersed into the situation at hand. The talk of coffee ceased, but the idea was still alive. 

In fact, that idea followed Paul to Iraq where like-minded service members wanted to help make the idea a reality.  One of their favorite pastimes was brainstorming about it, and over a year later, Fire Grounds Coffee Co. became a reality.

Paul’s co-founder, Kyle Lund, is an Army veteran who served two tours in Iraq and is now an Engineer / Driver at Dallas Fire and Rescue.  Their desire is to provide quality coffee and give back to a group of men and women they are proud to represent.  And we are proud to carry their coffees and have them aboard.

Polite Coffee – Normangee

Working our way around the state, we come to Army Ranger Veteran Steve Turner who owns Polite Coffee in Normangee, TX.  His focus is on bringing amazing coffee together with remarkable service.  Polite Coffee will blow you away with their coffee and friendliness – they definitely bring their southern hospitality and Texan pride to specialty coffee. 

Steve’s coffees are all single origins.  He currently has 4 available from Ethiopia and Guatemala ranging from a very light roast medium-dark. Real friendly coffee.

Yellow Footprints – Elgin

Finally, we meet Marine veteran Chris Jimenez, President and Founder of Yellow Footprints Coffee Company.  Yellow Footprints is a registered Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned, Small Business in Elgin, TX.  Believing the oath lasts beyond military service, they utilize sustainable processes to reduce their carbon footprint, thus continuing their protection of the Air, Land, and Sea.  

 

You’ll find a range of roasts from medium-light to a dark espresso, single origin to blends, and a decaf to boot.
