About Our Cold Brew Coffee Name

Our Name

In 1918, during World War I, the U.S. Marines launched an assault on the Belleau Wood forest in France by crossing a wheat field into oncoming German machine gun fire.

After three weeks of brutal tree-to-tree fighting, including multiple charges on German machine gun nests with fixed bayonets and hand-to-hand combat, and after trading possession of the forest with the Germans six times, the Marines cleared Belleau Wood of the German Army entirely on June 26.

It was here that the Marines nickname "Devil Dog" was born. As the story goes, German officers, in their battle reports, referred to the Marines as "Teufelshunde" (German for "Devil Dogs") as a result of the ferocity with which the Marines fought, and the name stuck.

Our Passion

Behind The Brew

Devil Dog Cold Brew is a gift from my heart to yours. In 2006, coffee became the drink which created opportunities for genuine, heartfelt, and significant conversations to occur that led to a deep healing of my soul. Coffee became my wellspring of life.

New and healthy friendships were born from inviting other people to join me at the proverbial well for a cup of coffee. Because of the relationships established from gathering together, sharing coffee, and getting to know each other better, I want to share the joy I have found with each of you as well as breaking the stigma of CBD and its positive physical and emotional effects when infused with our cold brew coffee. It is my hope and intention that each sip of Devil Dog Cold Brew will bring you closer to reaching out and fostering new and healthy friendships.
