How We Discovered Our Revolutionary Spirit-Infusion Process

October 22, 2018

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.

We Pause to Remember

September 09, 2018

It still feels like it was yesterday when the bright, sunny skies of a September morning, our nation came under attack. Lives were lost.

Coffee is the Secret Weapon of the American Workforce

August 30, 2018

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...
