Bands have been dipping their toes into the beverage world for a while now, with some recent examples including Iron Maiden's Trooper XPA beer, or Deftones' Phantom Bride IPA - but we always get excited to see some new coffee on the block, especially when it's been developed by Lamb Of God!
In celebration of their recent self-titled album, the band have partnered with Nightflyer Roastworks (owned by Between The Buried And Me guitarist Paul Waggoner) to create 'Memento Mori' - a small batch, single origin coffee grown in El Salvador and roasted in North Carolina.
Nightflyer Roastworks' mission statement reads:
"As a small batch, artisan coffee roaster, our focus at Nightflyer Roastworks is to bring in the finest coffees from diverse regions and roast them to a profile that highlights the varying and subtle nuances making each bean unique. Only when we have achieved the perfect roast, will we make these coffees available to our customers.
When you order from us, you are guaranteed to receive the freshest beans possible, usually roasted and shipped within days of your order! The standards by which we do business will always be hinged upon the concept of quality over quantity. Our beans are roasted in small batches, with the utmost attention to detail placed upon each and every roast. From the seed to the cup, we are dedicated to adhering to a 'third wave' culture."
12oz (roughly 340g) bags are available here with international shipping available, although if you're looking to have some brought out to Australia you'll be hit with a pretty hefty shipping charge.
