It’s the instantly recognizable symbol of the fire service.
You’ll see it on our helmets and our trucks. It’s on our badges and our gear. And you don’t have to look far to find a firefighter with the symbol tattooed on their body. It’s a point of pride and a permanent reminder of the service and sacrifice the job requires.It’s the Maltese Cross.
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.
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.
You already know you can get your favorite Fire Dept. Coffee from our website. And if you’re lucky, maybe it’s always brewing at your office or firehouse.
But did you know that we also supply our coffee to cafes and coffeehouses?
Wired Cafe in Rockford, Illinois, is a perfect example. They were one of our earliest supporters and remain one of our best customers. Crystal Douglas owns Wired Cafe and runs the business with her daughters, Shanna and Stefanie.
Close your eyes and imagine a firefighter.
In full gear from helmet to boots. Jumping aboard the truck or riding an engine, racing to the scene of a blazing fire.
Ready to do whatever it takes to put out the flames. To save lives. To get the job done.
A hero in every sense of the word.
She is amazing.
This week we’re celebrating International Women’s Day and iWomen (International Association of Women in Fire & Emergency Service) by launching a new video called “Real Women in the Fire Ser...
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.
It was like walking into a scene from a television show.
When the Fire Dept. Coffee team dropped in for a visit to the Chicago Fire Department’s Engine 18, it all looked so familiar.
Engine 18 is where NBC films its hit drama “Chicago Fire.” It just so happens that Fire Dept. Coffee is the coffee that fuels Engine 18.
Anyone who has worked in the fire service in the last 70 years knows about the Halligan.
It’s the tool you need to get through just about any door and a lot more. It’s got a claw, a blade, and a pick. In the right hands, there’s almost nothing it can’t do.
That’s why we’re so excited to unveil our newest mug in honor of this timeless tool. The Halligan mug is slate blue and silver, strong and reliable. It’s always there for you in the toughest of times. It looks pretty cool, too.
'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...
