About Coffee or Die Magazine

Coffee or Die Magazine is Black Rifle Coffee Company’s news and lifestyle magazine. Our online platform, coffeeordie.com, was launched in June 2018. In July 2021, we added a quarterly print magazine. We cover stories both about and for the military, first responder, veteran, and coffee enthusiast communities.

From embedding with troops in Iraq and Afghanistan to covering civil unrest across America, our team has shown time and again that we’ll go anywhere to report the most important stories for our readers.


Coffee or Die Magazine is a news and lifestyle magazine that informs or entertains the military, veteran, and first responder communities with original reporting and premium multimedia stories.
