Will Oldham, best known as alt-country God Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, has turned his hand to coffee.
Available now on the Drag City website, the limited edition Bonny Billy Blend from Kona Rose Coffee is apparently “100%-certified-organic-by-HOFA Kona freakin’ gold, bro”.
“Each half pound of whole beans comes in a re-sealable black bag with Wolfroy-pink label that is a seal of approval from the ‘Prince’ himself!”, Drag City’s shop continues. “This BBB roast is only available here on the Drag City website. Overtones of chocolate, leather and non-wacky tobaccy pair favorably with Wolfroy Goes To Town, available for purchase here of courses, or fresh muskmelons, for which we recommend that you contact your local free-range melon farmer”.
At $20 for a half-pound packet it’s not the cheapest, but let’s face it: it’s probably more pleasant than Ghostface Killah beer.
