coffee-510x510“My love for coffee has accompanied me around the world for my entire musical career. Just like the spirit of a culture or the melody of a song, the enjoyment of coffee brings people together and creates harmony among us The beans in this bag are traceable to their global origin and exemplify the spirit and culture of the people who grew them. It is my aim to bring this roast to our tables and awake our taste buds, fire up our rock n roll spirits and continue the global fellowship of music, art and coffee. May you, Roast in Peace!” – David Ellefson

Ellefson Coffee blends come standard as whole bean for maximum freshness. As a convenience, our coffees are available ground, but we HIGHLY recommend grinding yourself for optimum flavor and freshness.

All bags are roasted and hand packed to ship. First 50 orders come with a special limited edition hand-signed label from David Ellefson.
