It’s an old adage: either you die as a hardcore kid, or you live long enough to be a barista. Progressive rock stalwarts Coheed and Cambria have announced their debut in the coffee industry.
The group is expected to collaborate with J Gurnsey Coffee Rosters on their own coffee company, Coheed and Cambria Coffee Roasters. If they’re half the dedication to roasting beans to perfection than they write meticulous riffs, you know you’re going to have a hell of a good coffee.
The group is inspired by the cult sci-fi comic The wars of Amory, a series that the group explored in almost all of their albums. They released two mixes based on characters from the series “The Knowledge” and “The Beast” – the codenames of the two main characters in their story, Coheed and Cambria Kilganon.
âWe worked with the team at J Gursey Coffee Roasters to create custom blends that reflect the nuances of the characters that make up ‘The Amory Wars,’ the group said in a statement.
“The beast” is a blend formulated âfor energy and motivationâ. A robust medium / dark roast of African and South American coffees with a touch of espresso.
While “The knowledge” It is said to bring the drinker “inspiration and intellect” with “a sweet and delicate blend of light and dark roasted coffees from Africa and South America”.
In addition to their iconic beans, Coheed and Cambria offer a bunch of coffee products to complement both flavors, including matte mugs, a custom coffee maker, and a gorgeous Gothic mug. You can check everything here.
