Ordered two t-shirts and a pack of coffee from BRCC yesterday. Has anyone tried the Black Buffalo coffee? Tried to order their Thin Blue Line coffee as well but was sold out. So...now i'm back to drinking Folgers and eating figs from my fig tree till my order shows up.

Correct order received Thursday 6-29-2017 from Black Rifle. Nothing but good things to say about BRCC. There customer service was great, shirts fit just right and the black buffalo coffee is tasty.

Just ordered a bag of the Freedom Blend, should make it here by this weekend before I finish my CAF. I was very happy with the CAF, hope the freedom blend is as good.

Did you receive your coffee yet? If so, how do you like that one? I'll be making another order soon to keep my coffee cans stocked.

"Black Rifle Coffee pledges to hire 10,000 veterans in response to Starbucks pledge to hire 10,000 immigrants." Anyone know where BRC is on this pledge?

I did get it, the bit I had left in my CAF bag is lasting a little longer than I thought it would so I haven't opened the freedom blend yet. I really need some air tight containers so I don't have to worry as much about opening a bag and it getting stale.

If it's as good as CAF, I'll be really happy.

Isn't the Freedom Blend simply repackaged Just Black?

This is only my second bag from them so I can't compare yet.

Glad you guys are enjoying BRCC- unfortunately my experience with them has not been the same. I did order a nice stainless mug and use it daily but the coffee-neither of the varieties I have tried were fresh...

To compromise, I'll stick with my BRCC mug and continue to buy De Espresso Liber coffee- the other vet owned and charity driven coffee business. He roasts to order so it's always as fresh as you can get without roasting your own! (He's also a 1911 guy!) :fire

I hope they can grow further. If I was in a position to do so, I'd love to open a franchise/chain location to compete with Starbucks around here.

From an earlier post it appears they are adding staff. Excellent! I think their pledge was a bit tongue in cheek knowing they are a long way from 10k employees. I appreciate them paying attention, and responding, to knuckle heads like Starbucks.
