Coheed And Cambria have teamed up with J Gursey Coffee Roasters to launch their own coffee brand, Coheed And Cambria Coffee Roasters. There are currently two blends available including “The Knowledge” and “The Beast,” which are inspired by the code names of Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon from the band’s sci-fi concept arc “The Amory Wars.”
The band commented:
“We’re super excited to introduce Coheed and Cambria Coffee Roasters!
We’ve been working with the team at J Gursey Coffee Roasters to create custom blends that reflect the nuances of the characters who make up “The Amory Wars.”
“The Knowledge” is a smooth delicate blend of light and dark roasted coffees from the African/Ethiopian/South American regions. For inspiration and intellect.
“The Beast” is a robust medium/dark roast with a kick of espresso from the regions of African/Papa New Guinea/South America and Central America. For energy and drive.
We also have some cool accessories ✨
We can’t wait until you try our roasts, you can get everything at www.coheedroasters.com“
