It isn't very often that I get a "whoa, is that mine?" from my husband when a package arrives but that was exactly the response I got when my Lock n Load Java package was opened. Puzzled, I asked if it was because of the awesome black and white packaging, the skulls or the bullet holes? He just laughed because he knew I was right...I am cool enough to love those things too!
Truth is, we have been trying coffee brand after coffee brand and we have been unhappy with everything. See, we use a french press and it really makes a bad coffee worse but a great coffee that much better. You have to grind your own beans just.right. and then nurture those beans as they are pressed into the black gold many refer to as java.
It took all of about 11 minutes for me to open my package, choose a flavor and start grinding and brewing. I couldn't wait! You won't blame me after I tell you just how special this coffee is....I took the following from their website because you can't say it better than they do. I mean it!
'At Lock-n-Load Java, their mission is to provide the best premium coffee available.
Quality is their driving motivation. They buy only the best beans from reputable coffee farmers, on sustainable small farms, with a track record of growing consistently high grade coffee with unparalleled taste. By buying only the best, perfectly ripened coffee beans from farmers they know and trust, they pay a premium… but the results speak for themselves.
They work hard to provide the best quality and best tasting coffee for your drinking pleasure. From the farming sources of the coffee beans, to the precise roasting and packaging, to the delivery to your front door… everything they do is to give you the opportunity to drink coffee that will blow you away.'
They are a vet-owned and operated company who is dedicated to supporting our troops; active, veteran or those who support our troops. Carl Churchill, the founder is a combat veteran with 21 years of service as an enlisted soldier and officer. Lock n Load Java is also very philanthropic. They donate $1 of every order shipped to charities that support our troops.
What I noticed first about the Warrior Select that I brewed was the fact that there was more coffee oils in my cup than with crappy store bought whole-bean coffee. No wonder I hadn't found the pinnacle of coffee perfection before. Honestly, I think that Lock n Load Java could turn a coffee-hater into a lover of beans. They do coffee right and really, thats all right by me! I have sampled each of the blends that they sent me and the Warrior Select is by far my favorite. Strong and Black and perfect (I will leave the jokes to you).
