Squad 1 was our first coffee. Though it has changed over the years, its foundation remains the same. It is an approachable, drinkable coffee with plenty of flavor and a great way to start the day.
We named our best seller after an American hero and someone that lost his life in the 9/11 World Trade Center terrorist attacks. Stephen Siller was an NYC firefighter - in Brooklyn’s Squad 1, he heard the first plane hit the south tower and tried to get into Manhattan. The city had already been closed off, so he drove to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel and ran to the Twin Towers, where he helped rescue many people before losing his life. Because of Stephen and so many other military and first responders that keep this country safe, we get to make coffee for you. We are beyond fortunate.
We proudly support the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation. If you would like more information on the foundation or to donate, check out https://tunnel2towers.org/
