Crimson Cup Annual Military Coffee Drive
We consider it an honor and a privilege to give back to the troops who sacrifice so much for our country

Columbus coffee roaster Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea is holding a Military Coffee Drive through July 3 at its two Columbus-area coffee houses. For every 12-ounce bag of coffee purchased at Crimson Cup Coffee Houses in Clintonville and Upper Arlington, Crimson Cup will send a bag to active-duty U.S. Military personnel serving overseas.

“We consider it an honor and a privilege to give back to the troops who sacrifice so much for our country,” said Crimson Cup Founder and President Greg Ubert. “Starting the day with a great cup of Java can make all the difference when facing a grueling day.

“We make it as simple as possible for our customers to join us in giving back,” he added. “All you need to do is buy a bag of coffee at either of our Crimson Cup Coffee Houses – at 4541 North High St. in Clintonville or at 2468 Northwest Blvd. in Upper Arlington.”

He said Crimson Cup’s Military Coffee Drive has resonated among its coffee house customers. “Together, we’ve donated over a hundred pounds of coffee to the troops, even some in very remote locations.” he said.

In addition to the drive, Crimson Cup sends coffee and tea to troops throughout the year to offer a little piece of their hometown community while they are away. “Anyone who wants us to send coffee to a friend or loved one in the Armed Forces can send the soldier, sailor or airman’s name and mailing address to marketing(at)crimsoncup(dot)com,” Ubert said. “We’ll get a bag of coffee out to them.”
