May I see a show of hands….how many ever had a good cup of coffee? Now how many had a good cup while serving in the military? If you were in a war zone then most times you depended on instant which makes a ghastly cup of coffee or you were at CandC and you had to drink coffee from a huge urn that was made around the time of the crucifixion….any way a good cup of coffee in the military is a thing of desire from soldiers from decades long past.
My regular visitors know that I truly love my coffee….black no sugar…..it seems I find more bad coffee than good…..
I do a lot of research and in some of my readings I find a good piece that I would like to share on my weekends when I try to stay away from the mind numbing crap in the news for the past week.
One of my sessions of research I found an article about how to make a good cup of coffee in bad places…..
Making coffee isn’t strictly relegated to your kitchen or the local coffee shop. People around the world find ways to enjoy a hot brew in high-altitude mountains to the middle of the ocean, and everywhere in-between. A good cup of coffee can make inhospitable conditions more tolerable, but the quality in your cup often suffers without the trappings of your home coffee kit.
Evan Hafer, the CEO of Black Rifle Coffee Company, found a way to make great coffee in one of the most extreme environments on earth: war.
Hafer served as both a U.S. Army Special Forces non-commissioned officer (NCO) and a contractor for the CIA, with assignments that took him to combat zones around the world. Even during the invasion of Iraq in the spring of 2003, he found a way to grind and brew his daily dose of caffeine — without sacrificing quality.
Some great ideas and I think that this should be included in the combat package that they give to every troop deploying to a war zone…..
And now it is time for one of my marvelous cups of freshly ground Colombian beans…..cheers!
