Cup Of Joe For A Joe

  • Basic Info:
Founded: In Larkspur CA, 1996

GREEN BEANS COFFEE COMPANY is headquartered in Larkspur, California. Our company, in business since 1996, owns and operates more than 70 cafes at military bases in North America and in seven countries throughout the Middle East, Southwest Asia and Africa.
Many of our cafes are mobile units positioned at forward operating bases in Iraq and Afghanistan where extreme danger is ever present and amenities are few. 
We strive to provide a refuge of peace and tranquility where our troops can relax . . .

  • Mission:

In our travels to the forward operating bases throughout the Mid East, we personally hear from Soldiers that feel isolated from, and forgotten by, people back home.
Our goal is to mobilize a movement, through Cup Of Joe For A Joe, to enable any American, anywhere in the world, to reach out, let a Soldier know they care, and say “thanks”.


CUP OF JOE FOR A JOE gives everyone an opportunity to express their support for our men and women in uniform through the simple act of buying a cup of premium organic coffee and having it delivered along with their own personalized message of thanks to a Soldier serving overseas.
With your help, we can raise awareness for this wonderful program, but more importantly, brighten the day for a Soldier serving far from home.
Cup of Joe is web-based, takes only a few minutes to complete and costs less than the spare change in one’s pocket.

The American Spirit Mustang




Scott and Lynette Lewis built The American Spirit Mustang as a tribute to the American Soldier and the current ongoing conflicts have created a vast need for our service members that are injured or disabled. Scott and Lynette LewisThe American Spirit Mustang is going to be fund raising to support the Fisher House Organization whom are dedicated to helping disabled Veterans and their families.

If you feel as strongly about supporting our veterans as we do please donate to the Fisher House Foundation through the American Spirit Mustang, our young men and women were willing to make the ultimate sacrifice on our behalf the least we can do is support them and their families in their time of need. 
Thank You, 
Scott and Lynette Lewis

  • Company Overview:
       When SPC Troy Yocum came home from Iraq, he had just one thing on his mind: hike 7000 miles across America while drumming to raise $5 million for Military families. After the 2 week marathon in Kentucky Troy will hike north to Indianapolis and Chicago. Here is where we hope to gain a lot of momentum with the media. After a few baseball games Troy will head south west to St. Louis. Troy's path will connect with the American Discovery Trail (ADT) once he passes the Gateway Arch and will follow... <read more on his site>

  • Mission:
       Is to further spread the word that our American Heroes are fighting just as hard at home as they do overseas. We hope to provide a peace of mind and lay the foundation for military families in need to succeed. Troy will literally put one foot in front of the other, crossing the great states of America to reach people and help spread the importance of helping our military families. Our goal is to raise the needed $5 million for these families!
    Troy will carry with him a custom Louisville Slugger Bat that he hopes to get signed by Mayors, Governors, and people of importance in-order to get a National Day for Deployed Soldiers.
