Our story began in early 2018, when the three of us were deployed overseas together. David Martin, Todd Martin and Gabe Ulibarri are all U.S. Air Force Reservists who are stationed in Phoenix, Arizona. While overseas, we would meet up at a makeshift coffee shack or at the Fire Station and make it a ritual to have a cup of coffee and tell stories of REAL AMERICAN HEROES. The smell of coffee in the morning would get our day going and it gave us an idea, an idea of sharing stories of exceptional service from Real American Heroes and serving great tasting freshly roasted coffee. Having an absolute passion for what we do and the people we serve along side on a daily basis. We wanted to share stories of our travels, the people we've met and all the amazing and inspiring stories we've heard from them. Thus making REAL AMERICAN HEROES a reality!
We wanted to create a brand around our passion for coffee and find a way to highlight these Real American Heroes and the service they do daily, the actions they took to save another, or months they spent in a war zone away from their families.
