Who doesn’t love the taste of coffee and freedom in the morning?
Defender Coffee Company, created specifically to defend Second Amendment freedoms, is offering both by donating 100% of its profits from all their coffee sales to gun rights advocacy groups.
We caught up with Deric Schrack, founder and CEO of Defender Coffee, who shared with us the inspiration for launching his business. The idea came in the wake of the 2017 Las Vegas shooting when Deric, like many others, watched as politicians seized the opportunity to leverage the tragedy for political gain.
As journalists, congressmen, and talking heads threatened the Constitutional freedoms of Americans left and right, Deric continued to donate, as he always had, to gun rights advocacy groups. But what he realized was that his dollar only went so far. What he needed was more people, all donating to the organizations that fight against unconstitutional policy. So he began to research the buying habits of Americans, and one thing became very clear: we drink a lot of coffee. It was out of this realization that Defender was born.
All of the profits from every single purchase made on the company website, www.defendercoffee.com, go directly to organizations like the Second Amendment Foundation, Firearms Policy Coalition, and Gun Owners of America. In fact, GOA is an official partner of Defender Coffee, along with Armed American Radio and Open Carry Texas.
Each of their Defender’s coffee roasts is sourced from high-quality South American coffee beans and hand-picked by Deric. They have something for everyone, from their “Patriot Roast,” a light Kona blend, to their chocolaty dark “1776 Roast.” From the product description page on the very user-friendly website, customers can pick the roast that best suits them and choose the specific gun rights organization to receive the money from their purchase. You can make a one-time purchase, or join the Defender Coffee Club and get a new bag in the mail whenever you need it. Club members can choose to have their coffee delivered every 14, 21, 30, 45, or 60 days.
Defender Coffee is one small business making a big difference in protecting our right to keep and bear arms. As Deric pointed out, they don’t donate to organizations that are all talk and no action. The proceeds go right to the frontlines, to the groups that are fighting the loudest and the hardest to defend our Constitutional freedoms. The only way these organizations can continue their work is through donations, and they need it more and more every day. If you are not currently making donations to these vital gun rights groups, Defender Coffee is a great way to start. And what’s more, with every sip, you can feel good about doing your part to protect our freedoms and the American way.
