News reaches us from the wonderful Drag City label of a quite staggering development in the world of merchandising, concerning a member of royalty soon to visit our shores, one Will Oldham. Because this is so out of the blue (and also because Drag City’s news updates are so entertaining), we’re just going to reprint this verbatim (from http://www.dragcity.com/news/489).
The organic movement is finally real! It brings us a caffeinated surge of pleasure to introduce to you the first-ever (and only) Bonnie Prince-certified organic coffee. Up until now there were rules and rules about how to get a product certified organic, but standards are for the birds. And Bonny eats birds for breakfast. With coffee, goddamn.
Along his travels Bonny some how managed to find himself on the island of Hawaii and met up with the Kona Coffee people. After rigorous experiments with bean burning, granulated sugar filtering, boll weevil cross pollination and button pressing (always the most critical part of any operation, including our own. Lever-pullers, shut you mouth!), this limited edition roast is ready to be bought (but mostly sold) right here, right now in the Drag City interglobal e-marketplace.
Each half pound of whole beans comes in a re-sealable black bag complete with a one of a kind pink label to certify the clean body and fresh finish (and deep paranoia) you expect from the Bonny brand. It tastes best when paired with Wolfroy Goes To Town, available for purchase here, but it’s also not bad with chewing gum, hash browns (or hash, browns), garden heirlooms, sour patch gummies, cough drops, foodstuff, ulcers, dandelions, hot dogs and turkey necks.
This “Bonny Billy Blend” from Kona Rose Coffee is 100% Kona Coffee certified Organic by HOFA. 100% Wolfroy certified, too. Certified what is what you’ll have to buy the coffee to figure out.
Well, after we picked ourselves up off the floor, we had two thoughts. One, we love Drag City and everything it touches. And two, there better be some of that coffee on sale at the merchandise stall when Bonnie Prince Billy plays Cork next week.
Bonnie Prince Billy plays Cork Opera House, Wed Feb 1st, 8pm, Tickets €25
