In conjunction with J Gursey Coffee Roasters, NY proggy rockers Coheed and Cambria have announced their own coffee brand in the form of ‘Coheed and Cambria Coffee Roasters.’
“As avowed coffee lovers, the band worked directly with the team at J Gursey Coffee Roasters to create custom blends that reflect the nuances of characters who make up “The Amory Wars,” the sprawling sci-fi concept arc which ties nearly every Coheed album together,” states an official statement.
The announcement goes on to say, “Enlightened fans will recognize “The Knowledge and The Beast” as the classified code names of The Amory Wars’ two most notable characters, Coheed and Cambria Kilgannon. “The Knowledge” (Cambria), is a smooth delicate blend of light and dark roasted coffees from the African/Ethiopian/South American regions. Its counterpart, “The Beast” (Coheed) is “Coffee with a bite.” The robust medium/dark roast with a kick of espresso comes from the regions of African/Papa New Guinea/South America and Central America, and is cloud roasted at a 460° Fahrenheit drop temp.”
Leadman Claudio Sanchez explains further, “As an avid coffee drinker, I’ve been enjoying this experience of creating flavor profiles that embody the integral characters of our life’s work. They truly are what wake me up in the morning… and now, even more so.”
