In 1606, the Virginia Company of London set sail for the New World. a grueling year later, the Susan Constant, the Godspeed, and the Discovery made landfall in modern-day Virginia Beach. Three Ships Coffee is an homage to that local history and the mighty, adventurous spirit of the first settlers of Jamestown.
