Far East District headquarters welcomes Jenny’s Coffee Shop

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Far East District (FED), celebrated the grand opening of Jenny’s Coffee located within the district headquarters, Camp Humphreys, South Korea, Jan. 9. Jenny’s Coffee is an Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) concession that will service the district headquarters daily.

There’s a new place to get your morning cup of joe as the Far East District officially welcomed Jenny’s Coffee with a ribbon cutting ceremony on the second floor of the district headquarters building at Camp Humphreys, Korea on Jan. 9.

Jenny’s Coffee will serve coffee, tea, smoothies, fresh fruit juice, sandwiches, bagels and muffins and is open to all FED employees and visitors. It’s an Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) concession that will service the district headquarters daily. The shop opening is part of the continued effort to make the district headquarters building more work friendly.

“The district’s ULDP class created a nice social area here with tables, chairs and couches so this coffee shop fits right in with that environment where you can feel comfortable talking and exchanging ideas,” said Greg Smith, logistics management office chief.

Ann Yi, general manger of the Camp Humphreys exchange said she looks forward to serving FED employees and visitors and welcomes any feedback to improve customer service.

“Give us your feedback,” said Yi. “We will change our services based on what we hear. We look forward to serving you!”

Dozens of FED employees lined up for a taste test and the early returns were positive.

“Jenny's coffee is great,” said Eden Shin, FED contract specialist. “It’s my first time tasting it and I was curious since I never heard of Jenny's Coffee. We're lucky that we have a coffee shop in-house. I will definitely purchase more coffee from there.”

 

FED project manager Chris Carson, who works near the coffee shop, approved of the new dining and beverage option, saying it will enable better communication and foster a better working environment.

“This is a great asset,” said Chris Carson, a project manager at the district. “So much can happen when you’re sitting at a table. We can talk about projects and solutions. It’s a great environment here.”

Jenny’s coffee will open Monday to Friday from 7 p.m. to 4 p.m.
