'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the firehouse
Not a creature was stirring, the coffee had run out
The mugs were all stacked on the counter with care
With nothing to fill them, the cabinets were bare
The rookies drove me crazy, then they fell asleep
After the captain made dinner, that was unfit to eat
With floors to be cleaned and gifts left to wrap
This was no time for a firefighter to even take a nap
Courage. Service. Sacrifice.
Our nation was founded on those principles more than 200 years ago, and those same principles still guide our military members today.
As Veterans Day approaches, those men and women are in our thoughts more and more. The selfless spirit that guides them is a source of inspiration for us each and every day.
Fire Dept. Coffee is a company founded, owned and operated by veterans. So we’ve seen firsthand, at home and overseas, what it means to serve with a sense of d...
Giving back to our community is a huge part of what we do.
That spirit of giving back while growing a business caught the attention of the team at Google, and we’re excited to share that the technology giant featured Fire Dept. Coffee as part of its efforts to celebrate First Responders Day on October 28.
As most of our customers know, a portion of the proceeds from every order goes to support charities benefiting firefighters and other first responders in their time of need.
We began this grand experiment with using barrels to age the coffee. Not just to make it delicious, but unique and memorable.
New blends, new flavors, new ideas that have never been considered.
We know what good coffee tastes like. And we know the distinct aromas and flavors that can be found in the most popular spirits.
One day, the idea hit us to bring those two tastes together and to create something that we could all enjoy — and enjoy safely, anytime.
Then the more we thought about it, t...
Not all coffee is created equal.
If you’re reading this, you know that already. But you may not know exactly why.
You can get a cup of coffee at the gas station, and that’s fine. It’ll do.
You can get a cup of coffee from your favorite local diner, and it’s probably a little better.
But when you sip from a cup of expertly roasted, patiently blended small-batch, roasted to order coffee made by a roaster who sees his job as a calling and not just a paycheck? Well, we’re willing to be...
If you’re reading this before your first cup of coffee, we know what you’re probably thinking: What day is this?
It’s true that a delicious cup of Fire Dept. Coffee can jolt you back to reality. You know what else works?
Now we’ve got you covered, either way. We’re excited to introduce our new 2019 calendar, created along with our friends at Fire Department Chronicles. It’s available right now, for just $19.99.
It still feels like it was yesterday when the bright, sunny skies of a September morning, our nation came under attack. Lives were lost. Families were shattered and we still mourn for those that will never return home. Time has moved on, but we will never forget the men and women who ran full speed into the face of terror, without a second thought, ready to save lives. Each year, the anniversary of September 11 comes and we pause to remember.
We work long hours.
As firefighters, that’s just how it is. The firehouse has to be manned 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year long. No matter when that call comes in, we have to be ready, energized and ready for whatever challenge lies ahead.
But we know we’re not alone. We meet people all the time who work just as hard, just as long. Blue collar, white collar. Hard work doesn’t discriminate.
We all put in the time because that’s what the job calls for.
One thing most us seem to have in...
It was 3:30 a.m., and they were smiling.
That’s when the workday begins for the first shift of men and women filing into the factory at Pierce Manufacturing. These are hardworking folks who love their job.
They loved it just a little bit more on that day last week because we were there to greet each one of them with a fresh cup of Fire Dept. Coffee.
Two things we know are 100% guaranteed to make a long day on the job much better.
The first is coffee. It’s sort of our thing.
The second? Laughter.
Our best days on the job are when there’s a full pot of coffee and a full crew of men and women in good moods and cracking jokes.

Have you ever heard the expression before? The Third Wave of coffee.
They say it’s the latest phase in the history of coffee. The next evolution in fancy craft java? But you know what, that’s hipster stuff. That’s not us.
All decaf is not created equal.
You don’t have to be a professional coffee roaster to figure that out. Try enough decaffeinated coffee and you’ll know that the taste can range from delicious to “what the heck did I just drink?”
