Black rifle coffee

Worldwide free advertising and they pull this? Kinda on the fence but I don’t think that was a good response. What say all you coffee connoisseurs?

 Ever drank it anyway

Most of those companies say they are doing this or that for vets but little proof in the pudding

These guys are the real deal and I subscribe to their coffee delivery. They are simply distancing themselves from a controversial subject.  While I can assure you they believe the kid was within his rights when you run a company with a high profile you have to be careful. Doesn’t bother me at all.

Official statement from CEO Evan Hafer.

I drink a lot of their coffee and that won’t change based on this event.

I've been a subscriber to their coffee club for years. I've got no issues with them.

I don't see a "Night Stalker" blend in there. Maybe I should contact them and get them to produce some NSDQ blend!

I just sent them an email asking why no Night-Stalker blend:

Good quoffee people,

I was looking for your Night Stalker blend, and I couldn't find it! Man, we haul you folks all around and still don't have our own blend? What's up with that?

If you do create one, it has to be dark, you know, night time less than 23% illum and all that. Would have to have a good after taste that "Doesn't quit" with an aroma that sort of sneaks up on ya!

Just having fun with you bunch of grunts, keep up the outstandin' work and be good!

Maybe Matt will put you in one of his videos......

Guys, how would Big Don be portrayed in one of the videos?  The silent, straight man in the back with no lines and dark glasses....

Or maybe they would give him a ride in a helo and show him what it was like being a passenger?....one man’s smooth drive is another man’s rough ride...

Or maybe....??

On another note, maybe I should ask them to make me a blend too.....REMF Blend...weak, light and probably an instant coffee.  Pretty packaging, though.....

You're too hard on yourself

Nope, I see a special Tex blend as:

Being absolutely precisely blended
Made from the very best beans
Roasted in something being tested over at Lockheed's skunk works
By the worlds best quoffee beaners
It would be well known in some lofty quoffee drinkin' circles
Mix well with some top quality bourbon
Could not be gulped, rather "Drawn" from a well used favorite cup
and
It would be fairly expensive!

I think I've captured the red-Tex-essence wouldn't you fine men agree?

BTW, they wrote me back. Asked I resend message to their marketing people. Heck, I was just kiddin' with the thing, but I did modify/resend:

Good quoffee people,

I was looking for your Night Stalker blend, and I couldn't find it!

Man, we haul you folks all around and find places in the middle of nowhere to drop you off, plus or minus 30 seconds and we still don't have our own blend? What's up with that?

If you do create one, it has to be dark, you know, nighttime less than 23% illum dark and all that. Would have to have a good after taste that "Doesn't quit" with an aroma that sort of sneaks up on ya just like we do! Plus I'm thinking it should make you feel warm all over, kind of like we feel in our cozy helos!

Seriously, just having fun with you bunch of grunts, keep up the outstandin' work and be good! Thanks for sowing back into the brotherhood.

Does that mean it has to be drunk through a fancy straw? LOL!

Seems this BRCC thing has found some strange history. CEO has donated 500 to Obama, because of a lost bet, and 500 to Tulsi Gabbard because she was bullied by others in her party, is what he is saying. Either way, seems odd that such a presented as patriotic 2A loving individual to do I think.

I may be an odd man out here, but I have never really thought to much of the company. Years ago, a local gun store in Cody was a dealer of their coffee, and moving a large quantity, so they asked for a better price on their purchases, which seems logical, but of course they were told no. Yea, I understand that is the right of BRCC to do, but you'd think a little help would be acceptable for a small business, I can't imagine it would have cut into the companies profits that much.

just an fyi

Compared to Starbucks, probably still pretty conservative.  Tulsi was probably the most sane of the idiots on the stage.  Not that I would send any of those morons a dime.  However, I have made donations to democrats in local elections as part of gaining access for purposes of my business.  It’s a weird world politics....

Tulsi if I recall correctly was former military with time in the sand box right? Wasn’t a war dog, I’d agree she seemed semi sane. However, in today’s climate I wouldn’t donate 2 cents to that party.

And for the record I’ve never bought their coffee and likely won’t start now. I drink a dozen cups a month from a locally owned coffee hut drive thru place. Two of my kids work at Starbucks and are treated extremely well and I still won’t buy their coffee.

I loathe Starbucks and often ask people why they support them. Have been that way for many years. Also, yes tulsi is indeed one of the most sane dems, and that’s saying a lot because the rest of her state is cookoo.

Pretty sure I told guys on our finish crew they could go work at Starbucks and get paid better then they were with our company, plus they give medical, they give school tuition also I think

Those are pretty good considering the base dem went so far left.  The middle of both parties are pretty similar.  The issue is non of them are on the middle.  Oh oh oh wait Mitt Romney is lol
