We also just moved down to Andrews, but from Seattle, WA. Which as most of you know is home of Starbucks and tons of coffee joints. I would have to say that Cpl. Ray's coffee beats Starbucks! The service friendly and the coffee warm. So I give it the thumbs! I support the troops and local coffee!

I have been drinking coffee at Cpl Ray's since day one and I think it is by far the greatest coffee I have ever tasted not to mention it's an ideal addition to the local economy and a great way to show everyones support for the military. Taking cheap shots at the owners over a botched real estate deal only shows ones integrity.
cpl rays is great

I have been a real fan of starbucks coffee since who knows when! and now that we have cpl ray's coffee in andrews, tx it is the best in the world! I have also spoken with lonna bevel and belive she is only doing this coffee shop for the community and remembrance of her step-son that was killed in iraq! he was fighting for our country and for you! so taking how she runs her business at southwest is far and between how things are ran at cpl ray's....the staff is great! so i just think you whoever, needs to keep your mouth shut about lonna bevel....like you would really even know her!

Cpl. Ray's Coffee Shop, the hottest place
in town,
Trust me,I've been there, you should come
on down.
They have tasty pastries, great coffee, and
fruit smoothies too,
And the customer service is all about
pleasing you.
Don't doubt my word, it's no lie,
They even make the greatest chai.
So if you are looking for the perfect cup of coffee to jump start your day,
Stop in at your local Cpl. Ray's.

I think that bringing a coffee shop in to a small town like Andrews was a brilliant idea and I will support it to the end, as for you "new to town' I think that maybe you r the one with the problem. If you weren't so self involved and didn't believe that the world should revolve around just you and your snotty attitude you might be able to see past your own selfishness and be grateful to be a part of such a giving community. I fully support Lonna and Jerry Bevels and give them a big thumbs up for all they have done for this town I truly believe that they are making and will continue to make a big impression in Andrews, Tx.

I feel so blessed to be working at the Best Coffee shop and Honoring a man I only wish I could have known. Our Moving here to Andrews Texas was very scary however Meeting the Bevels and becoming part of their "Giving back to their community" has truly been my pleasure! If you have not been to the coffee shop on main street you need to come by. It is Awesome coffee with a smile everytime!

Well... Cpl. Ray died serving this country and fighting for the rights that some people in this world sadly take for granted. My husband like Cpl. Ray and other men and women fight for the freedom of Americans. Unfortunately there are those people who always find something rude to say. I say "get a life" find something more meaningful to do than to down talk a business in honor of AN AMERICAN HERO. If you dislike it fine you have that freedom to express your opinions, just don't have to be so rude and inconsiderate. I say to everyone in Andrews and surrounding towns, GO SUPPORT CPL. RAY'S & Honor this HERO & SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!!! I hope one day when I come home to visit I can come and have a cup of coffee and hear stories of this Beloved American Hero!! Semper Fi

Way to profit off the patriotism of your fellow townspeople!

What better way than to name your new business after your dead son?

Too bad I don't have a dead son to make money off of...*gets idea*
