Got Your Six Coffee Co. (GY6CC)

Got Your Six Coffee Co. (GY6CC) is passionate about helping veterans and others who put their lives on the line everyday to serve and protect us. Because of that a portion of all the profits from Got Your Six Coffee go to our non-profit, GY6 Foundation which has a primary mission to ‘serve those who serve’. Veteran homelessness, veteran suicides, and the daily struggles that veterans, LEO’s, EMT’s and Fire Fighters have with respect to PTSD needs to be addressed and we intend to lend a hand with that… 8 of them to be exact. That is exactly why we have an octopus as part of our logo because we are lending a hand, or arm in this case, to members of the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy, Marine Corp, Law Enforment, Emergency Medical Technicians and those in the Fire Fighting community.

My sons school does this awesome thing where they incorporate and teach Dr. Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective Leaders. It has been awesome to see my son grow under these teachings and I wanted to share and inspire others with it. At the beginning of the year he was tasked with coming up with "Wildly Important Goals" so that night my wife and I sat down at the dinner table with him to help him out with his...

In September of 2017, during our response to Hurricane Irma, we learned that many of the First Responders did not go home at night. They work long days which not allow them to go home and they often crash at the station.
This got us thinking…while the First Responders are taking care of the community, who is taking care of their families? Often times their families are left to fend for themselves. This is where we come in! We “have their 6”.
Thanks to amazing sponsors, partners and companies who believe in our mission of service to those who serve, we are well on our way towards completing our Got Your Six Coffee Co Disaster Response/Coffee Truck.

"In order to be involved, you must first show up" ~ Eric Linder, Founder of Team 5 Foundation. Ever since 12 August 2015 when I first learned about Team 5 Foundation through episode 6 of  Expedition Overlands Season 2 series I was hooked. For those of you who do not already know, Team 5 Foundation is a nonprofit organization comprised of a bunch of special forces SOFMED Medics and Doctors who go to developing countries to preform primary care, dental and surgeries...

Its hard enough to find a needle in a hay stack. Let alone two needles at the same time. Clay Croft of Expedition Overland and Dave Harriton of American Expedition Vehicles have both been a huge inspiration to me. I have watched them over the years following their dreams, accomplishing their goals, turning their passions into careers. They both live by the creed that if your turn your passions into careers you will never work another day in your life. You could...

Coffee as an aphrodisiac? You just made my day!! Turn on the romance with your favorite cup of coffee this Valentine’s Day? Yes, you read that right, coffee is one way to ramp up your love life. We all know that coffee is a stimulant, but the news that it is considered an aphrodisiac may be surprising to some.

A friend of mine from Maine Maritime Academy, Eric Hadley, with a degree in Marine Engineering Technology, recently opened Got Your Six Coffee Company.  Surprise was the least of my reactions, but when I started hearing his story, I learned that his coffee company was much more.  The difference with Eric’s story is that the product he sells is focused on delivering a message and making an impact on his community and the heroes he respects.  Eric started Got Your...

Once you buy coffee online and get your package in the mail, one of the first things you probably want to do is give it a try either right then or first thing the next morning. While there are many ways to prepare coffee, a popular method is through a French press. Using a French press is one of the best ways to make your coffee at home, but you need to do it right. First, start by grinding your beans...

The other day my son came to me while I was in my office and said "Daddy, I want help people like you" and when I turned around he had in his hands a Lego creation that he called his coffee makers. I suddenly found myself choked up with emotion because I saw through him that what I was doing is being noticed. Not just noticed by the public but being noticed by my son! Who would have figured that...
