Joseph Zoleta is the President of Black 6 Project, a Veterans organized humanitarian mission non profit that harnesses the skills of Veterans for humanitarian efforts like medical missions in Puerto Rico and the Philippines. Through a humanitarian mission in the Philippines and by testing out a Backpacks For Life backpack, Joseph was able to bring back 40 pounds of Philippine grown coffee beans and Black 6 Coffee was born. The unique flavors from the Philippines grown coffees Landslide Kibungan, 8 Ball Kibungan, and Amadeo Excelsa made these roasts quite popular and they are currently sold out on the Black 6 Coffee site.
