A recent addition to the ever-blossoming index of Clarksville coffee shops, Black Rifle is on pace to make an impression with coffee sourced directly from the growing powerhouses of the world. Whether it’s the rich, full body flavors of Guatemala or the bold and robust flavors of Brazil, each bean is hand-sorted with care and attention to detail, then shipped from their farm of origin to be roasted in-house, and ultimately makes its flavorful debut upon each tasty sip of your morning joe.
Founded in 2014 by former U.S. Army Green Beret Evan Hafer, Black Rifle was built upon a mission to serve coffee and culture to people who love America. Furthermore, it is a Veteran-owned business operated by principled men and women who honor those who protect, defend, and support our country.

Founded in Southern Oregon in 1992 by dairy farmer brothers Dane and Travis Boersma, Dutch Bros. Coffee is the country’s largest privately held, drive-thru coffee company.

From early mornings to late nights, some heavenly beverages you may spot being served out of their pull-up window include specialty coffee drinks, smoothies, freezes, teas, and Blue Rebel energy drinks that customers can infuse with their favorite flavors.
Every cup of Dutch Bros. coffee is handcrafted – roasted by hand in the Pacific Northwest, blended by hand, and then ground and pulled by hand, ristretto-style. One more observation worth noting, their employees are relentlessly kind, attentive, and cheerful, at all times, never failing to look like they’re having the moment of their lives while on shift; super fun vibes.
