If I don’t get my daily cup of coffee I could turn 28 shades of crazy. Which means I never miss my morning cup of love. This also leads me to checking out different coffees when I’m feeling adventurous. Which led me to trying out a couple blends from Fire Dept. Coffee.
Sipping with Fire Dept. Coffee
So let me tell you a little it about the company. Fire Dept. Coffee is a veteran-owned business dedicated to providing great-tasting coffee to people everywhere. Every order is freshly roasted in Rockford, Illinois, by a dedicated team of firefighters, first responders, and coffee connoisseurs.
I think this is pretty cool! They also give back to the community through their Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation.
Now, let me tell you about the two coffees I tried.
For Starters: Bourbon Infused Coffee
First, this Bourbon Infused Coffee is incredible! I am a person who rarely likes flavored coffees because they typically taste artificial to me. But this right here has my taste buds singing. It has such a smooth taste, and the bourbon… perfection!
This coffee smells like hot bourbon when you brew it. Read that again. You have never smelled something so good til your kitchen smells like hot bourbon first thing in the morning.
Now that you can smell it, let me tell you about the taste.
It. Tastes. Incredible.
You will want to brew this coffee whether you’re alone or having guests over. This gourmet cup of heaven will delight all of your senses. It’s a rich, strong flavor, but not overwhelming. The taste will briefly linger on your tongue just long enough to make you want to take another sip. Whew!
Next Up: Medium Roast Coffee
So then I tried the Original Medium Roast Coffee. Because as any avid coffee aficionado will tell you, there’s nothing like a regular cup of coffee.
When I first tasted it, I literally said, “dang that’s a good cup of coffee.” I said it out loud. A smooth, full bodied coffee, with a hint of a chocolatey undertone. It is sooo good.
The freshness of the coffee, the full bodied flavor. No burnt aftertaste. Nothing lingers on your tongue. Just smooth and satisfying. These folks at Fire Dept. Coffee know what they’re doing.
And they even put a sticker in my box… I am like a little kid sometimes, but I love swag and I was excited to get my sticker!
So this is how Fire Dept. Coffee made it to my “Stuff I Love” category here. They brew a mean coffee bean!
I absolutely love that they communicate with you every step of the way. I not only received an email confirming my purchase, but I received another notification when my coffee beans were being roasted, then shipped. It’s an engaging customer service process for people like me who always want a real-time status update for orders. I know I’m not the only one!
And if you think you have to grind your own beans, think again! I actually ordered both my bags as ground – the freshness is undeniable. You can also subscribe to their coffee subscription, and/or you can join their Coffee of the Month Club – I am definitely going to check this out.
They even have some fun gear for sale – mugs, stickers, tshirts, etc. I like all the fun swag – their Shellback Espresso gear is pretty sweet!
But right now, I need to go order another couple bags of these two roasts!
