We honor and remember the heroes today who made the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our nation.

 Cornet Bros. Coffee is donating 100% of the profits from today’s sales to the Gary Sinise Foundation to show our support and help veterans, first responders, and their families. 

Why the Gary Sinise Foundation?  It started with our commitment to being an environmental and socially responsible company. Environmentally, we feel we must maintain a balance between the ecosystem and the economy with our coffee.  Socially, the basis of Cornet Bros. Coffee’s corporate culture is to support veterans.  Cornet Bros. Coffee is a veteran-owned business, and we try to use other veteran-owned vendors when possible.  We are also starting after today, giving a percentage of each sale to a charity that supports veterans.  My brother and I have been vetting non-profit charities, and our first question always is, “How much of each dollar goes directly to the veterans?”   We don’t care if it is a high-profile veteran non-profit charity, we care that the money is going to the veterans and not a new Audi R8 company car.  So back to the question of why we selected the Gary Sinise Foundation.    We have found that the Gary Sinise Foundation commitment of, “fiscal responsibility and efficiency in all we do” and “last year, 91.12 % of every dollar raised was applied directly to supporting our defenders and their families” satisfied our requirements and we are proud to have them on our donor list.

What is a Mocha & Java blend?

Mocha & Java coffee is sometimes confused with chocolate flavored coffee due to a similar name.  It is not a flavored chocolate brew.  Mocha is a port city on the Red Sea coast of Yemen, and the majority of Europe’s coffee came from the Port of Mocha between the 15th and 18th century.   Java is an island of Indonesia with coffee being the major export in the 18th century. 

Sailors that frequently traveled between the Port of Mocha in Yemen and the Indonesian island of Java were the first to blend the two.   African beans have a unique taste and higher in acidity.  Indonesian beans have low acidity and strong bodies due to the volcanic soil.  The two beans brilliantly complement each other in the correct ratio and roasts.

We are accepting preorders now and offering 10% off with the coupon code MJ10%-OFF that expires on 5/18/19.   The product will start shipping on 5/20/19.

Is bean selection important?

YES!  No equipment will compensate for low-quality and stale coffee beans. Like wine, the taste of the coffee reflects the geographic location where the coffee was grown with each location having different soil, elevation, and weather.  The farmer also has a huge impact to the taste with their farming methods like their soil enrichment process and processing of the beans.  This is why Cornet Bros. is very selective of the farmers and the beans we use in our brews.
