1.  Black Rifle Coffee Company


If you haven’t tried Black Rifle Coffee, you’re missing out!  Black Rifle Coffee Company was founded by Veteran, Evan Hafer, a former Army Green Beret.

Evan took his love for coffee roasting and the US military and grew this military themed company from the ground up.   What differentiates him from other veteran owned coffee companies is he roasts his own coffee, he doesn’t buy and re-sell.

Valor Magazine had the honor of sitting down with Evan this summer to learn more about him and BRCC.  You can watch the whole interview HERE.
