I do not drink coffee, but my bride does. I wanted to support this Coffee Company some way so I ordered her some coffee and a mug. It will be one of her gifts for staying married to me for 32 years on the 17th. :clapping:

Thank you. I don't know if it is because I am such a swell guy or because she is just blind and forgiving. :lol:

I tried the CAF and it tastes fine but I didn't notice any extra zing.

There isn't any, really - that blend was made for an online group of veterans called "Operator AF" and plays off their name.

the website claims that it has twice the caffeine based on the choice of beans. They don't identify the sources of their beans other than to say whether they are central American, south American, etc. I assume that they use strictly hard bean Arabica coffee. Robusta coffee I believe is considered to be a little less ecofriendly, but has more caffeine. I think that the fields require more sunshine and so they typically require more deforestation in order to cultivate the coffee fields. They may use some robusta coffee in the CAF blend. I don't know....

Most standard 8 oz servings of black coffee have between 100 and 200 mg of caffeine. The overall range though is enormous.

The lighter roasts also tend to have more caffeine by volume ground coffee. Though it's mostly insignificant, and also depends on how you brew it and how much extraction you get.

for me, I don't really ever notice an extra jolt if I drink a coffee that supposedly has more caffeine, or if I just drink more coffee than usual. But I do suspect that the normal coffee boost may last a little longer.

I know that if I drink coffee after 4 then it might impact my ability to get to sleep, and if I have it after 6 then it will definitely make it hard for me to fall asleep at my normal bed time.

I'll take your word for it re the caffeine content - I just belong to that group and know that the name is a play on the group's name. If there's extra caffeine, I haven't noticed - I take mine strong anyway ;)

I've got an order in route finally- the last couple times I went to order, they were out of my "flavors." Been ordering from De Espresso Liber in the meantime- also a great vet owned and run outfit with a part of all proceeds going to fallen soldiers charities.

I enjoy coffee more these days... :tiphat:

I have done some work at a major coffee roaster in Houston. I have been told that all the green beans that go through there undergo some decaffeination. The aim isn't to make a less potent bean, but to reclaim some of the cafeine to sell. I was also told that today's beans have more caffeine than the beans of years past. I am thinking that Black Rifle Coffee never undergoes the decaffination process.

That sounds like the nicotine trick with big tobacco.

I ordered a box of coffee and a t-shirt from them a couple of weeks ago. Showed up quickly on the day they said it would. I just have to say, I loved both the coffee and the t-shirt. I'm not a huge coffee drinker, only because it and beer go straight through me, but I will definitely be ordering more from them (and a couple more t-shirts). I think more people know about them from their YouTube videos than their coffee. I had several people comment on their videos when I was wearing my shirt in Branson last week. :lol::
