The Story of Us...

Green Beans Coffee Company got its start by offering some of the comforts of home to the men and women of the U.S. Military, deployed at bases overseas and in areas of conflict. The Omaha location is the first independently-owned café to open in the U.S.

Born in Springfield, Illinois and raised in Grand Island, Nebraska, John Sievers entered the Air Force in June of 1988.  He was introduced to Green Beans Coffee while deployed to Afghanistan in 2007.  After 26 years of active duty service, John retired in July 2014.  His love for country, his passion for leading small teams of people, and his love of coffee inspired the opening Green Beans Coffee Omaha on 12 October, 2014.  His wife, Angela, is the co-owner.  She grew up on the east coast of Canada and is an elementary school teacher.  John’s two older daughters, Kirstyn and Kelsey, are both great helpers around the cafe.  John and Angela have a daughter, Johanna, who is the “manager” of L’il Beans.

Growing up in Los Gatos, California, we were drawn to the warm atmosphere of the small, local coffee shops. Spending time at these cafés together with friends and family, our love of, and passion for, the coffee culture flourished.

As our life journeys led us to live and work outside the US, we found ourselves unable to find the same high quality coffee or café experience that had become so important in our daily lives. Other ex-pats we met also longed for that same 15 minutes of home; a place to gather, spend time together and enjoy a hand-crafted coffee beverage. We were galvanized to take it upon ourselves to fill the void, and created Green Beans Coffee. We couldn’t have foreseen the global impact our small company would grow to have over the next two decades.

Our mission is is to not only be a brand, and create the best stainless steel flasks on the market, but to represent a purpose. To give back. To say thank you. We strive to bring awareness to the troops, veterans, and first responders, who need our support. They have served for our freedom, and we want to give back with a simple gesture. Whenever a flask is purchased, we will give one to the military. We will cover every expense from the production, to the shipping, and get the flasks in the militaries hands. We are a small company based out of Phoenix, Arizona, trying to make a large difference.

Our Beginnings...

About the Company:
Green Beans Coffee Company got its start by offering some of the comforts of home to the men and women of the U.S. Military, deployed at bases overseas and in areas of conflict. Firmly rooted, non-negotiable, and the foundation of our operating philosophy is a heritage of supporting those who put their lives at stake for our country.

At Green Beans Coffee, we believe that community is cultivated over a cup of extraordinary coffee or tea, as it has been for generations all over the world. We honor our brave men/women in uniform by donating a percentage of our sales to organizations that support the families and children of the fallen.

In response to customer requests, Green Beans Coffee is now expanding its footprint in U.S. markets and around the world by offering its super premium coffee products, freshly baked goods, and healthy meal options in airports, metropolitan cities, and suburban communities. Our cafés offer a casual and comfortable place where our customers can enjoy premium espresso-based coffee beverages and fresh-baked treats, while relaxing and listening to music.

Founded:
Green Beans Coffee Company was founded in 1996 by Jason and Jon Araghi, two Americans living in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, who saw an opportunity to introduce gourmet coffee in the country, and to fill the void in an underserved market.

Jason would frequently return to the Kingdom after holidays with a suitcase half full of coffee beans, since there were no gourmet coffee outlets in the market. He soon learned that most expats were doing the same thing. Through a network of contacts in the US, Jason and his brother, Jon, started to import, package, and sell coffee beans at local bazaars and supermarkets under the Green Beans brand.

Working with Jon, who had a zest for the coffee business, Jason set to work on a plan to open a new café in a high-end furniture showroom called Art Nouveau. Jason developed strategies for building the business, while Jon consulted on the vision and design of a Seattle-style coffeehouse that would work in the Saudi marketplace.

Upon opening the café in 1997, U.S. military personnel from a nearby base became regular customers. In fact, so many high-ranking officers frequented Art Nouveau Café that Jason began conversations with the military to open a store on the base at Eskan Village so that troops didn’t have to drive 45 minutes for a good cup of coffee. The base leaders agreed, and within six months, Jason and Jon opened the first Green Beans Café at Eskan Village, in Al-Kharj Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Military leaders requested that Jason and Jon come up with a way to get their super premium coffee beverages to troops in high-risk areas.  Over the next couple of years, three more cafés would open at Prince Sultan Air Base, where the “little coffee shop in a container” was born. Just a few months after 9/11, Green Beans is the first U.S. food company to deploy with troops, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, with new locations in Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, and eventually across Afghanistan, Iraq, and adjacent friendly nations.

Here in the US, Green Beans cafés offer the same super premium coffees and quality teas that Troops have grown to appreciate overseas, and of course, the “15 minutes of tranquility” that the brand has always offered to those deployed abroad.
