Who we are...R.A.H
Thank you for taking the time to read this and learn a little more about our Coffee company and what our mission is. Our company by the name of RAH Coffee Co., stands for “Real American Heroes”, it was crafted by three United States Air Force veterans who serve together at Luke AFB in Arizona. The three owners David Martin, Todd Martin, and Gabe Ulibarri who is also a professional firefighter all met in the Air Force in the early 2000’s and have remained longtime friends. In 2018, During the most recent Deployment overseas they made it a priority to meet for coffee whenever they could, they would have long discussions over coffee, and tell stories of Americas Heroes. This gave the U.S. service members an idea, an idea of sharing stories of exceptional service from Americas Heroes, as well as stories of their own. Having a passion for what they did, they wanted to share the stories of their travels, the people they met and all the amazing and inspiring stories they heard from them. From a detailed first-person account of firefighter who saw two planes crash into the twin towers then collapse on 9/11 to the U.S. ARMY Vietnam Combat Veteran who fought communism in South Vietnam during the Vietnam War, it has been an amazing and Humbling experience to say the least.
The three are proud to say they have served together in deployed locations in the middle east, manned weapon systems as combat convoy gunners while defending off IED’s, small arms fire, and Vehicle Borne IED’s. They have saved the lives of lost hikers in the forest as Search & Rescue members, driven in the President’s motorcade, responded to worldwide humanitarian disasters, fought raging house fires, responded to downed military aircraft, and volunteered at homeless shelters on Christmas in Korea and in Japan. If you could imagine, they heard some amazing stories from the people they interacted with and would share these stories with others over a coffee. Coffee was their story time and time to reflect on important things, that’s when RAH Coffee Co. was born. 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 did to save another, or months they spent in a war zone away from their families.
Making this passion a realization started in December 2018 and has since been an honorable journey in itself. From helping homeless veterans on Christmas Eve to running in recognition and memory of Pat Tillman, during the 2019 Pats Run, our brand is becoming recognizable and well respected. Our Mission is easy yet respectable to "recognize the everyday HERO", and it has just begun. We are proud to announce that we have teamed up with the largest coffee roaster in Arizona to create 4 specialty blends for the everyday HERO. Therefore, our goal is to share our military experiences, discipline, and drive to create a respectable brand that provides our customers with not only four great tasting Coffee blends, Apparel, and the honor of being part of an amazing culture but a brand that Recognizes the Everyday HERO.
