Beyond the much-needed caffeine after a night spent debauching the liver, coffee's pleasant aroma and delicious taste make waking up bearable. The problem is so many coffee suppliers are effete leftists who want to take our guns away or have too many facial piercings.Thankfully, there's a new source of Joe. Lock-n-Load Java is a veteran-owned company offering some great coffees with even more enticing names. Its current lineup includes Sniper's Choice(a "no-shakes" decaf), Charlie Don't Surf and Smooth Operator, all of which are premium, micro-roasted blends."We give $1 from every order to well-run charities that support our wounded warriors, fallen heroes and their families," said Lock-n-Load founder and President Carl Churchill, a retired Army officer and combat veteran of Operation Desert Storm. "We also have a 'Coffee for Troops' program where folks can support the troops in a real way by buying coffee for them. Lock-n-Load Java discounts the price for these pack-ages and pays all the shipping to Afghanistan or Iraq. We also match all customer donations."Churchill is also an avid shooter. "I got my concealed-carry permit while stationed at Ft. Lewis, WA," he said. "My wife and I have been married for 22 years, and for one of our first dates, we went shooting." He added that while support for the troops and gun rights are important parts of the company's mission, it is, "First and foremost, coffee that will blow you away. It starts with the best quality beans available roasted in small, artisan batches, then packaged to ensure maximum freshness."
