Crimson Cup military coffee drive

Time to support the troops! Our annual Military Coffee Drive takes place June 27 – July 3.

For every 12-ounce bag of coffee purchased at our Crimson Cup Coffee Houses in Clintonville and Upper Arlington, we’ll send a bag of fresh-roasted beans 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.”

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 and we’ll get a bag of coffee to them.

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