The Conway Shield Service Blend is for the Love of Our Heroes

February 06, 2019

Looking for the best gifts for firefighters, EMTs or police officers? How about for soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines or veterans?

This Valentine’s Day, skip the chocolate. Just say no to flowers. Go for a smooth, delicious coffee, roasted to order in their honor.

We are beyond excited to introduce the new Conway Shield Service Blend. It’s a medium roast, high-quality coffee made with an incredible blend of Brazilian and Colombian beans. It’s available now for the first time.

Give it to your heroes this Valentine’s Day. They are going to love it.

Teaming Up to Honor Those Who Serve

Fire Dept. Coffee is founded, owned and operated by professional firefighters and military veterans. We know firsthand the small but vital role that a good cup of coffee plays in helping our heroes get through the day and get the job done.

Now we’re excited to partner with Conway Shield, a like-minded, mission-driven organization dedicated to serving those men and women who day after day give so much of themselves to ensure our safety and our freedom.

Conway Shield may be best known for designing the leather identity shields that firefighters wear on their helmets. But they also provide so many other things for our service members, including equipment, gear, uniforms, firefighter memorabilia and more.

In fact, they recently teamed with another great partner of ours, Jason Patton of Fire Department Chronicles, to introduce a new custom “Signature Series” shield.

Now you can add coffee to the list. And the best part?

When you buy the Fire Department Chronicles Signatures Series Shield or a bag of the new Conway Shield Service Blend, you’re not just getting good gifts for firefighters, first responders or veterans in your life, you’re also supporting other heroes through the Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation.

Our foundation launched last year to help us give back first responders who are injured on the job, mentally or physically, or who are facing other serious health challenges. It’s a cause that’s very close to our hearts — and we know it’s close to the hearts of so many of the hardworking men and women who drink Fire Dept. Coffee.

So if you’re looking for a gift that gives back and a gift that spreads the love, you’re going to want to give your heroes some Conway Shield Service Blend this Valentine’s Day.

And don’t forget to get some for yourself, too!

It’s always been part of our mission to support wounded, ill or injured first responders. There’s one word that we hear much more than we’d like. Cancer. This vicious disease affects firefighters more than most — a 9% higher risk of diagnosis and a 14% higher death rate than the general public, according to the CDC/National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH). Help us fight back by ordering our new LION Action Blend, available today for the first time.
