Travel the World from the Comfort of Your Couch with Salty Sailor Coffee

The global pandemic that characterized most of 2020 brought our world to a standstill and halted most international travel. For Neil Kittleson and his family, that meant staying at home much more. They saw the struggles of the world around them, and wanted to find a way to help.

As a former Supply Corps officer in the U.S. Navy, Neil understands the importance of a good cup of coffee and how it can bring people together even in the toughest of times. The Salty Sailor Coffee Company was born from a desire to “Drink Coffee and Do Good.”  To that end, five percent of every purchase is donated to the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society to help Sailors, Marines, and their families in time of need.  The company plans to involve more charities as the company grows.  In addition to the charitable donation with each purchase, Salty Sailor Coffee Company offers a 10% discount every day to all active and former military, law enforcements, and first responders.  The believe those that work hard for us deserve to drink great coffee. 


Salty Sailor Coffee Company brings a unique spin to coffee, and encourages adventure in every sip. While most may not be able to travel in person right now, Salty Sailor Coffee customers can let their senses travel for them with coffee sourced from all over the world. Experience the flavors of a small village in Mexico or the rainforests of Papua New Guinea from the comfort of your own home. 


Once you are finished exploring, Salty Sailor Coffee offers customers a ten percent discount on all subscription orders. Return time and time again to your favorite spot, and never run out. As a nod to their sailing roots, Salty Sailor Coffee also offers a ten percent discount to all veterans, active military, and first responders.
