Singer-songwriter Will Oldham – also known as Bonnie "Prince" Billy – is now selling his own blend of organic coffee through Drag City, his longtime record label. According to a press release issued by the label, Oldham's Bonny Billy Blend Kona Rose Coffee came about after the musician met up with the Kona people while traveling in Hawaii.
The coffee, which has been certified organic by HOFA, is being sold in half-pound bags of whole beans in a resealable black bag, and can only be purchased through Drag City mail order. The site describes the flavor of the roast as having "overtones of chocolate, leather and non-wacky tobacco," so if that sounds appetizing to you, you should order soon: it is a limited-edition item, and as of yet, Oldham has no plans to open his own coffee house.
