Published Nov 22, 2010Despite reportedly starting their own record label, Wilco didn't release a new album in 2010. In lieu of having any new music to sell this holiday season, the band have put out a new product that will make the perfect gift for the alt-country lover in your family: Wilco-branded coffee.
The band are putting out the coffee in collaboration with Intelligentsia, a company based out of Wilco's hometown of Chicago.
The coffee will be roasted on December 1 and shipped on December 3. In order to get the coffee, you have to pre-order it here by November 28.
Here's how Wilco's website describes the coffee: "The aromatics of coffee blossom and violet make way for an incredibly graceful and elegant cup. The body has a light and silky quality, like fresh whipped cream, that beautifully compliments the ever-present note of citron, juniper berry and vanilla. As it cools, the cup blossoms into notes of confectioner's sugar, rosehips, and soft raisin, resonating on a pristine finish with a touch of milk chocolate."
In addition to the regular caffeinated version, there's also decaf available, plus a Coffee Lovers Bundle that comes with two bags, plus two Wilco mugs.
We're hoping the brew goes along nicely with those Wilco sandwiches.
