Fire Dept. Coffee
Ya’ll know I have a weak spot for great tasting coffee and enjoy it daily. However, this holiday season I challenge you to support Fire Dept. Coffee. They are a veteran-owned and firefighter-run coffee company that gives back 10% of net proceeds to ill and injured firefighters and first responders through their Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation.
They have a coffee of the month club that would be the perfect gift for the coffee lover on your list. Or if you have someone like my brother in law Rickey their Spirit-Infused Medium Roast Salted Caramel Bourbon will be the perfect cup of joe. This limited edition tastes buttery, caramely, and finishes with a hint of salt to compliment the coffee beans. It will be the after dinner delight all year long, or until they run out!
About Fire Dept. Coffee
Fire Dept. Coffee is a veteran-owned business and certified by the National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA). They are 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.
Inspired by the vital role that coffee plays in helping firefighters stay alert and energized through long shifts, Fire Dept. Coffee was founded in 2016. Founder and CEO Luke Schneider is a full-time firefighter/paramedic and a U.S. Navy veteran who teamed up with firefighter/paramedic Jason Patton who is also a full-time firefighter and VP for Fire Department Coffee.
Fire Department Coffee is run by active and retired firefighters, including our operations officer and chief coffee roaster.
Along with providing a growing selection of incredible coffee — including its signature spirit-infused roasts — Fire Dept. Coffee also supports heroes in need through the Fire Dept. Coffee Foundation. Ten percent of net proceeds are donated to help provide essential resources and assistance to first responders who have been injured on the job, mentally or physically, or who are facing other serious health challenges.
Shop Fire Dept. Coffee and know that your hard-earned money is going to front line heroes that need our help! I’m going to be supporting them
My favorite coffee pot of all time is the Ninja Coffee Maker and anyone that loves coffee needs a Ninja Coffee Maker. I’ve been a Ninja girl for about 5 years and recently upgraded to a newer one. One of my all time favorite things about the Ninja coffee Maker is that you can make one coffee cup, one travel mug (little bit more than a cup), a half carafe (pot) or a full carafe (pot). I do admit thought that the full and half carafe are the settings that are used the most, right next to the iced coffee setting.
Contigo Coffee Cups are perfect for the cup of joe to go. They really don’t leak and are practically indestructible but what makes them keepers is that they are dishwasher safe. Brady uses his daily because it keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. I work from home so I don’t use mine nearly as often as I should, but love it when it’s time to hit the road.

If you have followed me for anytime at all you know I love my coffee and things that have to do with coffee. But I have found a new love for my afternoon drinks which usually includes homemade iced tea or iced coffee. But the sweat that leaves rings drives me absolutely bonkers so for the most part I use a tumbler of some kind all day.
But now instead of a tumbler I am breaking out my Sok-It for both hot and cold drinks. The reusable hot beverage sleeve is perfect for those “to-go” cups and literally lives in my purse so I can always use it instead of cardboard sleeves. Plus, I am helping the landfills by not using a new one daily when I purchase coffee outside the home.
But the Java Sok that gets the most use at home is the Reusable Insulating Cold Beverage Sleeve. This large sleeve keeps my desk free of rings and allows my drinks to be cold without constantly having to get more ice. PLUS, it keeps my hands dry, so it is pretty much a win-win situation. I am thinking that we are going to have to order a few more just so we have them on hand because they are seriously that handy. It is time to help mom upgrade her daily to-go coffee encounter with eco-friendly, fashionable, cup sleeves from Sok-It™. With over 40 designs, there is a style for everyone on your list.
