We are very happy to have our friends at Black Coffee Roasting Company supporting the Rut this year. Although BCRC only opened their doors in 2010, in just a few years time they have risen to the top of the Montana coffee market like a fine foam on the surface of a perfectly pulled shot of espresso! They are a company who is tirelessly committed to quality; roasting and blending beans in small batches while paying attention to every detail along the process. In addition, they live by the mindset that come hell or high water there is still always coffee and it might as well be great! “Great” is just the beginning when describing their craft organic coffee. Look for their seasonal blend in the fall appropriately called “The Hunt”!
