I’m enjoying a satisying cup of 4th Quarter Strong this morning and I have to share more about the ones who roasted it for me – Tattered Beans.
The mission of this veteran-owned company is unparalleled – with every bag of coffee purchased, Tattered Beans donates a portion directly to veterans, not through a third-party organization. That means that when you buy a bag of coffee, you can share a specific veteran you want to honor, and that veteran receives $4 from every bag purchased.
Isn’t that just the coolest thing? Not only do you get to support an awesome veteran-owned company, drink amazing coffee, (because, coffee is life), but your purchase directly benefits a veteran in your life.
If you are a veteran purchasing coffee and would rather give your benefits to another buddy, you can easily select to donate to someone else or to an organization of your choice. As a veteran, you can also add yourself to the site to be included! (follow the steps here)
Now if you don’t personally know a veteran on the site, don’t worry, you can still shop! There is a database of veterans by branch, and you can select as many as you’d like to support. Simply click Shop > Select a Veteran > Choose your coffee > and then that veteran will receive the proceeds!
You can also choose a first responder to support, which is just the coolest, because we love supporting our sisters and brothers in blue.
And, Tattered Beans ships all around the world – including APO addresses!
Now that you know the mission of Tattered Beans, we know you’re sold. But just in case you need more…let’s talk about the coffee.
Tattered Beans has 8 unique roasts.
The “strongest coffee in the arsenal” is the 4th Quarter Strong blend, and it is just as bad ass as it sounds.
Here’s what Tattered Beans has to say about their flagship roast:
The fourth quarter symbol, hand held high in the air, four fingers erect and strong is a sign indicative to athletes, on the field, that it’s the fourth quarter, it’s time to give it all while the clock ticks down to zero. US Veterans, in all landscapes, have taken the last stand in real battles and gave their all to save their post or one of their own to preserve the freedoms for all in their homeland. These warriors have battled for hundreds of years and will continue to for hundreds more. Tattered Beans recognizes, respects, and supports the warriors that have not faltered in the fourth quarter. Tattered Beans raises our hand, four fingers high, with veterans!
And, let me tell you, this blend will amp you up and have you caffeinated and ready to take on the day.
Is your mouth watering yet?
Next is Morning Run, a medium roast. This is the perfect blend to start your day, whether you’re heading for a run or not.
The dark roast, Delta Dark, is eye-opening, heart-racing, strength-inducing blend that is the kick in the pants you need to make it through the day.
If you like things a little more flavorful, Drill Instructor is a nutty roast that is perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. Don’t let the fact that it is flavored leave you thinking it’s easy drinking, because let me tell you, the flavor profile here will have you standing at attention.
For the moments where you just need to get away, Weekend Pass will have you dreaming of warmer days and tropical breezes. The notes of coconut and rum will take you back to the beach, even just for a moment of mental clarity.
Special Ops is the espresso roast, not for the faint of heart. This blend will motivate you to push the limits of your day.
The last flavored roast is a fun one: We Saved Your Ass. This is more of a traditional blend, with notes of vanilla and hazelnut. It’s all in the name…
They even have something for you when it’s too late in the day, but you really want that cup of coffee with your dessert. Foxhole Decaf hits the spot and won’t keep you awake at night.
All these roasts are available in 12oz. ground or whole bean bags, 5lb. ground or whole bean bags, 2.5oz ground vacuum pack, and single serve pods. (Special Ops and We Saved Your Ass are not available in single serve pods)
So there you have it. Eight amazing roasts. One incredible mission.
