It's a rare moment in life to come across someone who doesn't love and live on coffee. And everyone has their favorite way they like it. Hot, cold, blended, latte, frappe, whipped cream, no whipped cream, extra foam, no foam, extra shot of espresso, vanilla, caramel, hazelnut--you name it. Flavors a plenty-especially around the holidays when the seasonal fare is Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint everything... And we all have our routine choices as to where we go to obtain our daily dose of java... The life-juice we need to get thru the day. Well now--we have a new choice. And not only is it locally owned and operated, but it also benefits First Responders, Military, and Law Enforcement.

I'm talking about the new Black Rifle Coffee Company location at 3500 Big Spring Street in Midland.

And they've thought of everything. From the decor which showcases so much detail:

To the comfortable seating that invites you to pull up your laptop and stay awhile...

(There's also outdoor seating, so when the West Texas Weather is nice, you can hang out outside too!).

It's truly an experience just walking in. Then you get to the counter to order and there's a nice selection, hot and cold--all worth trying. This visit I did a blended Vanilla Latte with whipped cream, and got my wife an iced Peppermint Latte. Both were really good! I suggest you stop in and check it all out for yourself. The service is great and the baristas are always smiling and ready to help, and again--it benefits First Responders, Military, and Law Enforcement.

And--we all know how drive-thrus are here--how long those lines can be sometimes... Ok--MOST of the time... And they even thought of THAT with an extended drive-thru lane that doesn't block traffic OR clog the parking lot.

Again--stop and check it all out for yourself. This writer bets that as soon as you do--your routine coffee joint will change--and I'll be seeing you in line at Black Rifle!
