A great coffee mug is not to be underestimated.
It doesn’t just carry our coffee. It shows off our style, our character, our tastes. A great coffee mug has a story to tell.
When you’re drinking from a Fire Dept. Coffee mug — and why wouldn’t you be? — the story goes something like this:
The idea was born in Rockford, Illinois, by the founders of Fire Dept. Coffee, who knew that it wasn’t enough to make delicious coffee. So with a logo and an idea, they searched the country for the best creators of handcrafted coffee mugs.
They found Jack and Mike at Grey Fox Pottery.
Their studio is in a thriving arts district in Minneapolis, across the Mississippi River from downtown. Grey Fox Pottery’s next-door neighbor is Minneapolis Fire Station 11.
Jack and Mike, along with a team of local artists, have been crafting functional coffee mugs since 1989. We may be biased, but we believe that our Fire Dept. Coffee mugs are some of the best they’ve ever made.
They took our ideas and added their own creative touches. Each mug is handmade with the eye of an artist and the skill of a craftsman. So far, they’ve created seven custom mug designs for Fire Dept. Coffee customers.
Check them out and choose your favorite. And keep checking back. We’re always dreaming up ideas for the next great coffee mug.

'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.
