We are an icon in the premium small-batch coffee roasting industry and it shows in our numbers, our products, and our customers. Our coffee makes us profitable, but our community makes us valuable.

Our brand is rooted in our favorite American qualities: Duty, Family, Rights, and Values. We’re engaged with our community and our 45k+ customers know it, not to mention our 40% retention rate.

We’ve sold over $4.5 million worth of products and shipped over 100,000 orders since inception. Our distinctive roasts are packed within 48 hours and shipped with lightning speed at the peak of freshness. Blackout Coffee is a premium coffee experience.

the pitch

At Blackout Coffee, we roast premium specialty coffees entirely in-house and infuse them with traditional American values to create our own slice of the small-batch coffee industry, which will reach $152.69 billion by 2030*. For the past 4+ years, our premium coffee blends have earned over 45,000 customers, more than 100,000 orders, a 40% returning customer rate (10% higher than the industry average**), and over 4,000 active coffee club subscriptions. We actively support the military, veterans, police, firefighters, first-responders, and all Americans who see their work as their duty - not just a job. We have partnered with Jared Yanis, The Dan Bongino Show (the #4 podcast in the US***), and have grown our revenue from $130K in 2019 to $2.4M in 2022.

Coffee with traditional American values has been successful for us

Blackout Coffee was founded in Florida four years ago because we were tired of giving our money to coffee companies that didn’t share our values. We also felt like the coffee that was available didn’t come close to the quality and freshness that we were craving. We could see that there was a huge opportunity in the market that aligned with our own personal wishlist.

Since we started, our annual revenue has exploded from $130K to $2.4M. We have experienced tremendous growth serving over 45,000 customers and surpassing 100,000 fulfilled orders. Since we started our coffee subscription model in 2021, we have earned the repeatable business and loyalty of more than 4,000 hard-working Americans (and growing).

We are proud of the impact we’ve had and the connections we’ve made by supporting active military, veterans, police, firefighters, and first-responders. We see huge opportunities for us to grow our involvement in this area.

By insisting on exceptional quality, strong American values, and a passionate community, we foresee continued growth in our future - simply because we know who we are and we know how to execute a reputable business.

One of our top metrics of traction is our customer retention rate. We are proud that it stands at 40% which is 10% higher than the industry average (source). With our continued investments in community engagement, subscriptions, and elevated branding, we plan on pushing our customer retention rate even higher.

The Problem

Premium coffee can’t sit on a grocery store shelf.

Grocery stores sell coffee, but it’s not always fresh. By the time a stocker puts a bag of coffee on the shelf it’s been (at best) approximately 15 days since the roast date. This time frame gets even longer for your average grocery store that doesn’t have an intentional coffee-freshness strategy. Buying coffee beans within 3-4 weeks of roast is going to give you decent coffee, but you are completely missing the ‘peak freshness’ that true coffee aficionados know and love. Simply put, it’s near impossible to get a premium coffee experience at a grocery store. 

Coffee is at its absolute peak of freshness about 3 days after roasting. After that, you’ll still be able to pick up on the flavor notes, acidity, and balance but it will begin to slowly degrade day by day. By three weeks, at most, coffee is no longer fresh.

How We're Different

Our process is our strength 

Here’s what you need to know about the Blackout Coffee process: it’s all done in-house.

We source premium specialty grade green coffee beans which are graded at 80 points or above on a 100-point scale. Specialty coffees are grown at the perfect altitude, at the correct time of year, in the best soil, and then are harvested at just the right time. We work with local co-ops and farmers that grow this high-quality coffee and we adopt a strict adherence to small batch roasting our coffee. This process is why we are consistent in providing you with a coffee that has exceptional taste!

Blackout Coffee is roasted, packed and shipped with lightning speed usually within 24-48 hours. This means you get the beans just days after they’re roasted. The combination of our premium coffee beans, highly controlled roasting process, and immediate shipping gives our customers an elite coffee experience. 

Blackout Coffee is the perfect product for anyone who appreciates premium coffee and meaningful opportunities to support others. We started this business because we were tired of giving our money to companies who didn’t share our values. There are many people in this country who feel this way as well. The conservative coffee movement just recently skyrocketed, and our positioning and focus is a unique approach that has already proven to be successful.

The Market

Coffee subscription models are booming


We have grown to over 4,000 subscribers since we launched the service in 2021 and we see no signs of slowing down. Our revenue and customer loyalty have increased significantly with this program in place. 

Coffee subscription models are one of the fastest-growing industries in the world (source). The access to coffee software and easy integrations with e-Commerce platforms have permitted coffee roasters to offer subscription coffee services & direct-to-customer sales at scale. This is the opportunity factor in the specialty coffee industry.


According to a recent study published by The Brainy Insights, the global specialty coffee market is expected to grow from USD $53.67 billion in 2021 to USD $152.69 billion by 2030, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.32% (source).

Blackout is more than just coffee

Our brand is bigger than just coffee. We are a purpose-driven company that acknowledges the people and traditions that make our country great. Our customers are engaged in supporting meaningful connections via coffee that they don’t normally have access to in a convenient manner. We honor duty and hard work one sip at a time.

We make it part of our mission to give back to our military by sending donated coffee care packages to deployed troops. This is why we created Operation Blackout, which gives our honorable customers an opportunity to give back to our deployed troops by donating coffee care packages at a discounted price to a designated or random unit.

Our commitment to supporting our community doesn’t end there, we have also partnered with GovX to provide savings to all first responders who serve.

Our community is even bigger than military and first responders.  We are the official coffee for Cars & Coffee Palm Beach and have developed a large following at this event with repeatable business and passionate loyal customers.

Irregular Use of Proceeds

When we first started this investment campaign on StartEngine, we knew that we had loyal fans and investment potential. However, the idea of over 2,000 people investing their hard-earned money to support Blackout Coffee seemed like a far-away land.

Well, we're here now. More than 2,000 people have become owners of Blackout Coffee and we couldn't be happier. This is a special group of people that we will be proud of forever.

Thank you to everyone who has put their trust in our company. If we're still earning your trust, please take a look at the big growth numbers that we'll be sharing later this week. It's pretty amazing, so stay tuned!

God Bless,

John Santos

CEO Blackout Coffee Co.




We are proud to announce that our new gear is in stock! One thing you might not know about our business is that we sell A LOT of shirts, hats and more. Because of this, we make sure it's all good quality, comfortable, and durable. 

There's a good possibility that a dad or two out there would appreciate this particular batch of new gear for Father's Day. A nice new shirt and a highly-caffeinated, super fresh bag of Brewtal Awakening might do the trick for this upcoming holiday.

We are just as proud of our consistent and quality American values as we are about our coffee. 

Thank you again to everyone who has supported this campaign. Can you believe we've raised over $1.8 million?? 

John Santos

CEO Blackout Coffee Co.



We're getting closer to a HUGE milestone in our StartEngine campaign. 2,000 INVESTORS!

Thank you to everyone who has gotten us this far. Our campaign is closing in on $1.8 million dollars raised. That's incredible!

For everyone else who are still watching and deciding: we're looking for folks who want to invest in something that'll make them proud. Blackout Coffee will be more than just an investment. It'll be a family. That's our goal.

We know that there are enough people watching us out there who, even with just a small investment, could help us reach a very important milestone. 

If you are one of these people, please let us know!

Thank you,

John Santos

CEO Blackout Coffee Co.


Special Message

This weekend we raise a cup to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to make America the greatest nation on earth and to give us the freedom we enjoy and (often) take for granted.

Anyone who is familiar with Blackout Coffee knows that this is not just something we just say on holidays. It's on our minds everyday and we strive to help make a tangible difference. If a cup of our premium, super-fresh coffee can help a deployed troop get through their day a little easier - that's what we're going to do.

While you're looking for companies to invest in, keep a lookout for companies who invest in the people around them. Sometimes this world is more than just money and products. Especially on important holidays such as this one.

God Bless,

John Santos

CEO Blackout Coffee Co.


Please Read This Update!

We thank you for following (and supporting) our StartEngine campaign! We're pumped just knowing that the people of America are responding to our company. Making premium coffee with traditional American values is fun and meaningful.

However, the other reason we're here is to make a tangible difference in the lives of active deployed troops in the US Armed Forces. We created Operation Blackout as our way of supporting them and help fuel their momentum. 

If you would like the added joy this Memorial Weekend of sending some top-notch amazing coffee to either a designated unit or a unit who has requested a Blackout Coffee care package, please visit our website www.blackoutcoffee.com and click on 'Support Troops'.

Also, if you know someone (or many) in a deployed unit, please tell them about this program so they can sign themselves up and get on the list. That can be found on the 'Support Troops' page as well.

Thank you for supporting us as a company and the hard-working troops standing up for our country.

God bless,

John Santos

CEO Blackout Coffee Co.

When we look back at all of the updates since we started this campaign on StartEngine, it's amazing to see the consistent growth of our follower and investor numbers. We're trying to build a meaningful crew of owners who believe in premium coffee and quality American values. 

The bonds that hold our community together are strong. If you would like to be a part of something like this, you can still invest right now. We would love to have you with us.

CEO Blackout Coffee Co.


Send Coffee to Troops!

One of our favorite things to do is Operation Blackout. It's our way of making a difference in the day-to-day grind of Americans deployed in the military.

Whether you're an investor or not, it probably safe to say that most of you out there want to see our troops being supported.

This Memorial Day, we would like to suggest an easy way to help fuel momentum for America's Warriors. Simply go to our website www.blackoutcoffee.com and click on 'Support Troops'. There you will find all the info you need to send full bags of coffee to either a designated unit OR to units who have requested our coffee.

If sending fresh, premium coffee to hard-working troops on duty feels like the good thing to do, we will be glad to be a part of it. Just fill in the order, tell us where to send it and we'll do the rest.

It will certainly make a difference in how you feel during the upcoming holiday weekend. Thank you for considering this act of support.


Big Update!

Here's some great news for all of the amazing folks who invested at a tier that included perks of some kind: they're on the way!

Ever since the launch of our StartEngine campaign, our company has been experiencing a lot of growth (there are more details about that in our previous updates). We've been working as hard as we can just to keep up with orders and more. All of this time however, we've always had our investors in our minds and couldn't wait to finally be able to fulfill the perks they deserve.

Well, we are proud to announce that we have already started sending some of them out. It's time to start checking emails etc. and looking for your perks to arrive!

Our whole crew is very grateful for all of your enthusiasm during this process and we're very excited to get these perks to you!

John Santos

CEO Blackout Coffee Co.


1,800 Investors!

We continue to be amazed at the support we've received from our customers and the StartEngine community! At over $1.66 million raised from over 1,800 investors - our brand is growing strong.

If you've been watching us from the sidelines and are waiting for the right moment to become an owner of this mighty coffee company - today is a good day to jump on board! We've already doubled our revenue in 2023 vs. this time in 2022 and experienced 3x growth in April vs. April last year.

Join us! We would love to have you with us!

John Santos

CEO Blackout Coffee Co.


Our New Facility!

If you’ve been keeping an eye on our StartEngine investment campaign, you may have noticed that we have been experiencing incredible growth over the years. Those numbers continue to increase in 2023. In just the month of April 2023, we did 3 times the amount of sales than we did in April of last year!

What does all of this growth mean? Well, on our end it means that we’ve been running out of space! We do everything in-house which means we need room for roasting, packing, shipping, etc. Our team and our products have been getting pushed closer and closer to the walls of the building we’ve been in for awhile. 

With the success of our StartEngine campaign, increased sales, and growing customer base, we’ve been looking around for a space that could house us for the foreseeable future. 

And now the big update! We just signed the lease to our NEW FACILITY that is 7 TIMES LARGER than what we’ve been working in lately. It’s massive!

We couldn’t have done it without our customers and StartEngine investors (many of whom are customers). 

If you’re someone who is looking for great opportunities to invest in quality businesses on the rise, we ask that you take a look at our story and financials on our StartEngine campaign page.

Thank you,

John Santos

CEO Blackout Coffee Co.


3X Sales in April!

The numbers for April are in. We have officially done more than 3 times the amount of sales in April of this year than we did last year! We certainly felt it in the amount of time we spent roasting and shipping. The reason we continue to work so hard is that we know our customers also work hard and that we share a common set of values and passions. What we have most in common with our customers is that we all need really great coffee to keep us moving forward!

We continue to be amazed and grateful for the hard-working people out there who are supporting our premium coffee company. The size of our customer base continues to grow by leaps and bounds. 

Think about it, we’re making 3 times the amount of product that we did just last year! If you’re someone who is looking for great opportunities to invest in quality businesses on the rise, we ask that you take a look at our story and financials on our StartEngine campaign page. The amount of growth that we have experienced even since we first drafted our page has been incredible!

We would love to have you become an owner of our company! Seriously. 

If you are one of the nearly 1,800 people who have already invested - thank you! Our company is stronger now than ever.

Thank you,

John Santos

Hello. Love the coffee! I bought shares twice just a few days apart. However, I'm seeing it as two different companies? I have it in my portfolio as Blackout Coffee and Howloo, Inc. I seem to remember seeing something about it showing as Howloo. Will that eventually show all under Blackout Coffee?

The valuation is $17M but sales have not yet reached $3M. Your sales went up but Net Profits went from 10% down to 7%/$186K (I hope I did my math right). I imagine it went down due to the new facility? I’m curious of two things because I’m still very interested. 1-can you share what the yearly expectations/goals are for yearly revenues for the next two years and expected net percentage? 2-when do you project being out of debt? Thank you.

Good Afternoon, What benefits do we have as investors in your company? Will there be any return on our investments, such as payouts, dividends or a possible public listing. All these questions are important to me before i invest. I already love the coffee and the concept, but investing i need to know what my long term return on investment may consist of. Thank you, Mike

Your info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!


Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
