This idea came to mind while in the United States the principle already existed. Dominic, therefore, shared the idea with his brother-in-arms Christian, mentioning that they could give back directly to the military community while sharing its reality with the public. Christian took over the administrative side and Dominic started producing logos and texts to kick off the Café Steel Pot company.
The military community is very important for both sides of the Steel Pot Coffee. We also note on the Café Steel Pot Facebook page that the military community and veterans are put forward, whether in image or text.
