Coffee Drip

Reimagining quality specialty coffee and tea, conveniently served at a drive-thru.

About Us

It all started with two military veterans who were frankly tired of their local coffee shops overcharging them for horrible coffee.

As career military professionals, the two decided to put their skills to work, identifying how to drastically cut the cost of coffee while still providing a great cup of Joe. Almost one year later, The Coffee Box became a reality.


As a veteran-owned company, we aim to partner with other local & veteran-owned businesses. 

The Goal

  • Reimagine the process of producing high quality coffee

  • Locally source ingredients made fresh daily

  • Ensuring the highest quality and the lowest cost for our customers

  • Conveniently served with the dual drive-thru concept
