Coffee with a Cause

Cowboys and a coffee quite frequently go hand in hand, and I don’t know many true cowboys who drink a pot of coffee in which you can read the paper through the pot. They like it good, strong, and black; “Strong enough to float a horseshoe” even. There’s something a little different about buying coffee through Bison Union versus grabbing that red can of coffee at the local Wal-Mart, a few things different, really.
Each bag or box of single-serve cups of Ranch Hand Blend Coffee sold translates to $1 donated to Working Ranch Cowboys Foundation, designed to help working ranch cowboys and day workers and their immediate families in times of crisis. “A hand up, not a hand out” is their motto, and they help in so many situations which leaves a family in a bit of a hardship. Ranch Hand Blend is coffee with a cause and it’s darn good to boot.
Bison Union is owned and operated by a veteran and his spouse and the coffee is manufactured by Black Rifle Coffee Co., a veteran-owned and operated company. So by buying even one bag of Ranch Hand Blend Coffee, you’re essentially donating $1 to WRCF, and keeping countless veterans in employment within two separate companies. That Folgers is looking a little bland now, isn’t it?

I definitely recommend giving Ranch Hand Blend Coffee a try for a multitude of reasons, one of which is I think it’s strong and delicious. We drink it ourselves and use the bagged variety when we have some time in the morning and the single-use rounds in our Keurig; which ends up being mighty handy when my husband leaves the house at 4 a.m. to beat the heat branding and needs some quick coffee.
If you sign up for their email list, you can catch some pretty great deals, which doesn’t come out of the WRCA givings in the least.
