My first experience with Green Beans Coffee was on my first trip to Iraq. Before dawn, I found their cafe and went in. I was amazed- the coffee was wonderful, the environment was pleasing, and the Troops were lined up to get in. Bear in mind that these same Troops could get free coffee from the dining facility, but they wanted something of top quality at a reasonable price that made them forget for a moment that they were in a bad place doing a dangerous and sometimes thankless job.
