The Mountain Post home of the 4th Infantry Division has maintained its reputation as being one of the coldest duty stations in the U.S. Army. In order to accommodate the Warfighters of Fort Carson, the Robert C. Stack Dining Facility has implemented “The 719 Blend,” their very own coffee and tea bar. It was launched Nov. 22, 2016 in a red-ribbon cutting ceremony with opening remarks from Col. Curtis C. Taylor, commander, 1st SBCT, 4th Inf. Div.
“The 719 Blend” features state-of-the-art equipment from Dispenser Beverages that provides a fresh cup of coffee, cappuccino or tea to each customer. The coffee bar features equipment that brews fresh cups of 100% Columbian coffee for the novice consumer to equipment that grinds freshly Eureka roast whole bean coffee for coffee connoisseurs. In addition to coffee, the bar also provides rich 'n creamy hot chocolate, hot vanilla, mocha and frozen cappuccinos. The facility has taken special consideration for their diners who do not consume coffee and has provided different tea varieties.
As the military dining facilities continue to provide support to the Soldier diner, coffee has remained at the forefront of each meal being served. The Army food service program continues research and development that modernizes current food service practices and trends into military dining facilities. If you take the time to look at what a Soldier is holding when they enter their workplaces in the morning; they are generally holding a hot cup of coffee and their leader’s books. Now is an opportune time to check out the new coffee and tea bar at the Stack Dining Facility.
