Joey Kramer’s Rockin’ and Roastin’ Coffee
Lately, artists have been coming out with their own brand of foods and drinks. Iron Maiden have Trooper beer, Motorhead has wine, Sammy Hagar has tequila and rum. Other bands have come out with hot and barbeque sauces. Joe Perry from Aerosmith has his own line of barbeque sauce and Zakk Wylde has a own line of hot sauces. Dave Mustaine from Megadeth put out his own line of coffee a few years back. I could go on, but you get the point.
A few weeks ago, Joey Kramer of Aerosmith called the Rocker Morning Show promoting his new line of coffee, Rockin’ and Roastin’. I guess after years of hard boozin’, artists like Joey have switched from shot glasses to coffee mugs. Now, usually when these artists call up to promote their product, we never hear from them again, and we have to search the internet to try out these products. Luckily, Joey was kind enough to send us RKR jocks a few bags of his Guatemala: Dark-Medium roast coffee. Now, I’m no coffee connoisseur, but I do love a good cup of joe.
I’m not a big fan of dark roast coffees. I prefer a light-medium roast. I didn’t find the Guatemala dark-medium roast to be too dark. It had a rich, bold flavor, with hints of citrus and dark chocolate, which gave it a nice woodiness feel, without too much bitterness.
Oh who am I kidding. I filled this bad boy up with so much booze, all I could taste was whiskey…
