As a company owned and run by firefighters, Fire Department Coffee wants to take this opportunity to recognize our local and national heroes. The ones who never hesitate to answer the call of duty. The ones who clock in and don’t know if they’ll make it back home. National First Responder’s Day was designated by Congress on this day, October 28, 2017 and is now a day on which to honor those who continue to ensure the safety of the general public and their own brothers and sisters in uniform.
Ethiopian Coffee has the longest history of coffee growing and harvesting in the entire world.
Coffee originated in Ethiopia and what better way to honor this fact than by choosing a coffee from Ethiopia as Fire Dept. Coffee’s first-ever Coffee of the Month pick?! Coffee has nearly boundless benefits, including keeping away memory loss, diabetes prevention, and of course, acting as a
There is only one thing better than receiving a new box of FDC on your doorstep every month: A different flavor of FDC every month. Say hello to our little friend: The Coffee of the Month Club. Beginning October 2019, FDC will be sending our “Coffee of the Month” club members a different, great-tasting flavor every month to keep up the spice in your relationship with coffee. These various flavors, including those exclusive to the Club, are sure to rock your taste buds and give you that much-n...
They are the unofficial mascot of the fire service.
No, not the rookies. We’re talking about the DalmatianDalmation.
We’re used to seeing firefighters and dalmatians together. It’s part of the imagery and lore of the fire service, but how many of us know where it all began?
Firefighters aren’t in it for the recognition. But a select few become well known and universally respected — in firefighter circles and beyond.
Warren Forsyth is one of those few.
He’s a third generation New York City firefighter, who passed the tradition on to a fourth generation. He served the city for 20 years, the majority of which he spent with the prestigious Rescue Company 1 in Midtown Manhattan.
Along the way, he earned 13 citations for bravery in the line of duty.
We celebrate our heroes every day. But on May 4, International Firefighters’ Day, we celebrate them just a little bit more.
We go out of our way to simply say thank you.
We take an extra moment to reflect. We remember those we’ve lost. We honor those who serve today.
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.
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.
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...
