If you’re anything like us, you’re probably a little tired this morning after staying up to find out who our next president would be. We’re hitting the coffee pretty hard today, and if you are too, and you’re a fan of Periphery, then you might want to head over to the band’s webstore to pick up the band’s very own “Flatline” coffee and/or the mugs that come with it. Not only will you be buying coffee from Washington D.C-based Vigilante Coffee, but the band will also be donating some proceeds of the Ecuadorian coffee towards disaster relief in Ecuador. Here’s what the band’s Mark Holcomb says about the brew:
“Being the coffee junkies that we are, the band and I jumped at the opportunity to develop and release our own branded coffee with Vigilante, who kept us over-caffeinated for the Periphery III recording session. When we saw what Vigilante founder Chris Vigilante was doing and tasted the coffee they were brewing, we were floored; it was easily the best coffee I had tried in my years of living in D.C., and the band made it our go-to coffee spot.
This past winter, Chris invited us into the shop for a lengthy tasting where we sampled over a dozen coffees and picked what would become “Flatline” coffee. Aside from being excited to release such a great coffee, we’re also proud to say that a portion of the proceeds from sales of this coffee are going directly to Ecuador’s earthquake emergency relief for the 7.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Ecuador in April 2016.”
Good deal. If you’re interested, head on over to their webstore to pick up.
