    Drinking Cafe Bustelo right now, been drinking it out of a .5L beer stein since about 1995.

    I had an E-6 of Cuban descent that turned me on to it. He used to brew it over a boiling pot of water using a wire frame made of a clothes hanger and a pouch made from an old linen pillow case.

    The wife drinks Tulley's which I also like.

    So here is how this went down.

    - Kyle Rittenhouse (Kenosha Hero who I have a standing open invite for to come and learn how to wreck people in the dark) gets out on bail.

    - Lawyers and/or friends take pictures of him and he just randomly happens to be wearing a Black Rifle Coffee Company shirt that day.

    - Whiny bitches on twitter and whatever start trolling BRCC, who has no affiliantion with Kyle about how they are 'sponsoring' him, which is not true.

    - BRCC responds with some lawyeresque bullshit statement as to how they are not involved with Kyle. Fair enough.

    - BRCC then immediately kills its commercial sponsorship with Blaze Media because they showed a picture (possibly the same one?) of Kyle in their shirt.

    So all in all, nothing big happened on the surface outside of the sponsorship renegging. However, not only did they miss out on a giant opportunity to actually support Kyle and the 2nd Amendment as well as tell all of the domestic terrorists to go and suck a dick; they instead made it VERY clear that they like money over standing up for someone as well as showing that the 'youre welcome for my service' tactical bro club is deathly afraid of a bunch of faggots on the internet.

    They could have easily just have said and done nothing. They weren't involved as this was just a coincidence as to what shirt the kid was wearing in the picture. I get that. However, the fact that they did a backflip and then went out of their way to seperate themselves and go even further by pulling sponsorship for simply showing a photo, especially in a time when 'dont get involved' is EXACTLY the reason we are where we currently are, is just absolute shitbird level for a company touting overpriced coffee under the guise of being a cool operator or some shit.

    Kyle did work. These guys want to just sell shit and not support the 'culture' they gear their overpriced fobbit coffee towards.

    On a coffee snob note: Even if they weren't such sandy vaginas, their coffee is crap, especially for the cost. If you think it was good, you need to just PM me and Ill tell you where you can get batches directly imported and roasted from Guatamala that was grown in volcanic soil and will make anything they put out seem like a trip to the Speedway.

    Fuck those guys.

    When it goes down, this is how it will be when they start squeezing your neck with their boots, most businesses are going to continue to do whatever makes them more money. Most people in the community like money more than the 2A which makes no sense to me as that is the hand that feeds them. I don’t know how the hell they cannot see it, but I see it all the time. And I’m pretty sure that most would cave to political pressure if they ever had to be tested. It’s sad but it’s true. These big businesses have an opportunity to stand up for the 2A and make some real change, but most don’t, just saying. So, this comes as no surprise to me. I just assumed that BRCC somehow helped with him getting out. I guess that was the wrong assumption.

    Being an acknowledged poor, I’ll have to continue to buy where I can using scrip and obsolete Mexican and Argentinian pesos. I buy Bustello, aromatic coffee and medium to dark roast when I find them on sale. I then blend them together and use plenty for a nicely balanced strong cup of coffee that has actual flavor and aroma.

    At work, we used to have a guy that would sometimes bring in Costa Rican coffee he had brought in. It was good, with a dark earthy flavor, but I would have blended in an aromatic and some Bustello if it had been mine. Would have been perfect then.

    Oh, and I also think that it was a pussy move to drop the Blaze sponsorship over some twatter noise. When a pillow company and a struggling hollyweird actor stand up for what is right and a “badass” veteran owned company backs off out of fear for lost sales, it shows who really stands for what they say they do.
    Did you not get in on the free Bustelo a few years ago in Florida when apparently big tins just kept washing ashore?

    And by the way...... “ Being neutral” means That you say “we don’t care that he’s wearing our shirt” And “we don’t care that you don’t like that he’s wearing our shirt”
    But when you cancel advertising you are acquiescing to the cancel culture which makes you a bunch of pussies.....

    I bought some from a LGS to give to a buddy for a wedding present. I figured it helped two good businesses, supported vets and at that over price had to be something special.

    He thanked me but when I asked him if he tried it and he said it was meh, there's better coffee in convenience stores..

    Anyway, fuck those guys and their overpriced coffee. You now know who you can't count on.

    It's their company that can support what they want. I'm not so stupid that I don't buy from somebody because they don't have my personal beliefs. What morons do that? Oh, yea just found some posts here. It's kind of like not watching a movie because you don't like some actors political beliefs... LOL.

    Thank God the popular vote doesn't count for our presidential elections

    Crap, does everything have to be some form of virtue signalling these days?

    Politics destroys everything it touches.

    Most people can't be their own man. They need that positive support or judgment from others. Kind of like those that have Facebook and Twitter and need all those likes for the dopamine Spike.

    They could have made a statement saying something like 'wanted to let everyone complaining about rittenhouse wearing one of our shirts know that we hear you.... and we're donating $10k to his defense fund'. They would have had that $10k back in a couple hrs. Dumbasses.
    Truth.

    So here's what I'm thinking, why would his attorney think it was a good idea in the first place to inflame the situation?

    If I was the kids attorney I sure as shit would have him keep a low profile.
    Kyle gave an interview to a newspaper a while back and now someone let's him throw gas on a fire.

    Hi,

    Because they get paid either way and their business will expand in clientele because the "stood up" for the 2A in the eyes of some.

    The only funny part is buying yeti...

    Can i borrow 50 bucks?

    😁
    I had a dude on my shift that got them at dealer cost so I couldn’t turn down a yeti at $20. The worst part is that I didn’t realize these were made in China until after I snagged one a while back. It’s operator green so I’m OAF. #NBD

    My coffee Holy Grail is that I only seem able to find at Diner counters in white china mugs.

    It always alludes me when I home brew.

    Maybe its the old lady with the raspy voice that asks "cream or sugar with that Darling?"

    Just never find it anywhere but the small diner.

    Bet raspy voice would be smart enough to not mention shit that would hurt the bidness.

  • Honestly, you are kind of screwed no matter what you do!

    And the real thing is... The left will not reverse their opinions on BRCC even with the statement that they have issued. To the left, BRCC still represents a company founded by 'evil gun toting conservative racist toxic male Trump supporters' and catering to 'evil gun toting conservative racist toxic male Trump supporters'. They are not going to say "oh you issued an apology and statement, we won't send you to the Gulag"... You CANNOT appear weak or soft in the face of the militant left. You call them out right back at them, clown and ridicule them, and tell them 'fuck around and find out'... You cannot bend the knee to them and expect them to view you in a different light. They still hate you for what you are and what they perceive you are.

    I think I might buy (1) bag of their stuff so when Biden’s boys come knocking at my door looking for black rifle, I can offer them a nice hot cup of joe. Other than that I will send my money directly to Mil support groups/charities rather than filtering it through a coffee company.

    I know what you mean. Went down a bit of a rabbit hole to figure that out a while back. One of them told me the secret to good coffee was a little salt to mellow it out. Like half a teaspoon per pot. It does seem to work. Guess it offsets some of the bean acid or water mineral content.

    Yeah fuck those guys. I inquired about franchising, being a Vet and all, and crickets. My bro in law sells their stuff in his shop, and I've never been impressed. Even less so as of today.

    People here are showing exactly why the popular vote doesn't count. This company simply have words that you don't like, so you don't want to buy their product... LOL. Exactly why your vote shouldn't count. Way too easily swayed by popular opinion.

    No different than not watching somebody's movie because they support Biden... We call those people losers

    That only works if you fail to keep your decanter and filter assembly clean.

    I'll wager you use cream/sugar or both in your coffee.

    I read through 2 pages of this shit just to find out about this volcano coffee because I assume it only grows through the ash when a virgin is sacrificed...

    But is the cafe bustelo espresso ground coffee actually a fine grind, or is it just an espresso roast? The moka pot has increased my consumption of afternoon delights...

    Volcanic non poors coffee.



    I drink this almost every day. It's beyond fantastic and has a whole other level of flavor when adding a bit of cream as the acid reacts with it somehow.

    If you're not familiar, the rarer volcanic coffee is Geisha. This is what you'll drink and not share with anyone else.


    And if you haven't done so, vote for my meme, post # 38 :D
