The only thing better than a great cup of gourmet coffee, is a great cup of gourmet coffee that also honors the fallen. Bonefrog Coffee Company was created as a tribute to the “Brotherhood” of US Navy SEALs, the Naval Special Warfare community and to all Americans who have bravely served, or who are currently serving, in our United States Armed Forces. It’s a Veteran-owned and operated premium boutique coffee company founded by retired US Navy SEAL Tim Cruickshank, who is also the company CEO.
A portion of the proceeds from the coffee goes to financially support foundations that were created to serve the Naval Special Warfare community and their families. These include the Navy SEAL Foundation, SEAL Veterans Foundation and the Navy SEALs Fund.” .
What’s in a name and logo? In this case a lot. The Bonefrog is a sacred and iconic image in the SEAL Teams that honors those SEALs who made the ultimate sacrifice in the defense of our country and our freedom.
Bonefrog Coffee Company imports farm direct from Central and South America and Indonesia. By cutting out the middleman, it allows them to pay their farmers more. And in so doing, improving agriculture, strengthening relationships and building communities. Their beans are grown specifically for their blends. They have access to some of the most ethically grown and highest quality Arabica beans in the world.
Arabica coffee, also known as coffee arabica or mountain coffee is a type of coffee plant that’s native to Yemen and Ethiopia. It now constitutes 60% of coffee production worldwide. Arabica coffee beans are considered among the best in the world. The beans selected by Bonefrog Coffee Company buyers are the best of the best.
