There are life lessons that come with some coffees such as; stay grounded and leave a pleasant aftertaste. Be the center of a party and don’t cause people to fall asleep. Be there afterwards to help sober them up. Be someone people look forward to being around and don’t make a mess. Be good just the way you are and try not to need much to make you whole or palatable. Don’t be high maintenance and cost your friends too much, while at the same time letting them know you are part of the finer things in life; make your friendship worthy and appreciated. Black Rifle coffee offers more; be brave and gentle... and maybe take no prisoners.
Ah, coffee. Thank you, Lord.
Has there ever been such a non-alcoholic beverage so widely appreciated? Eh, maybe tea, but I’m not going there today. In keeping with my affinity and search (see previous posting) for the best ground coffee around, today is all about coffee, not tea.
Discovering the new coffee in town came sort of by accident. Hubby was hunting for this year’s perfect family gift exchange gift online and stumbled across the veteran-owned, Black Rifle Coffee Company. Yes, I think the name is cool, but I wondered if it was just slick marketing with ‘meh’ coffee. It was two weeks before Christmas, but he placed the order with Black Rifle Coffee Company for their Complete Mission Fuel Kit, and we waited.
I was charmed. Delighted. Wishing I could hug a soldier at that moment while at the same time wanting to be a military badass myself. Never having served in the armed forces, I do have a deep respect for those who have and do currently serve.
If I were several decades younger, I might look into a BRCC franchise -- maybe I could wear camo and kickass boots to work everyday and march in yelling, "Bring it on!"
A girl can dream...
About the taste? It was soft, smooth, just like they touted on the package. No aftertaste -- just delicious coffee and the best I've had of pre-ground, yet. I highly recommend Black Rifle Coffee. It's a great beverage experience and a thoughtful purchase in light of the veteran founders.
I raise my cup to you, Black Rifle! Well done.
