Kirk Hammett: Rock ‘N Roll Star to Coffee Roaster?


Have you ever thought about what coffee and rock ‘n roll have in common? Well, they’re both dark, heavy, and make you feel alive. So, if you haven’t connected the dots just yet, Kirk Hammett will connect them for you. Hammett, Metallica’s current guitarist, has released his own line of coffee called Ghoul Screamer in collaboration with KHDK Electronics and Dark Matter Coffee and it’s everything you think it would be.

Dark Matter Coffee, a Chicago-based coffee shop, teamed up with Hammett and KHDK Electronics, Hammett’s guitar pedal company, to create this limited edition bag of coffee. The name acts as a tribute to Hammett’s signature guitar pedal. They originally teased the release of this product with the teaser image above. The intriguing—and quite fitting—bag design is by Jennifer Fergusen with artwork by Daniel Kurz. Straight from El Salvador, this brew has notes of apricot, praline, and mulling spice.

The description of the coffee reads, “Guarding a serpentine circuit of obsidian, Ghoul Screamer was forged in the bottomless mines of Az’g’orath to protect humanity from the forces of evil by summoning the scream of the Ghoul. (from “ghôùll”, Sumarian for “sick tone”). Heed the prophecy; only warriors of the sacred caffeine-to-blood ratio will wield the power of Ghoul Screamer, a fully fermented brew with waves of untamed punch. Those unworthy will be consumed by its force.” 

So, if you’re a rock ‘n roll fanatic and a coffee lover, it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be fully consumed by this bold brew. Get a hold of a bag or two for yourself; I mean c’mon, you’ll probably want to keep one on display if you’re a long-time Hammett fan. This is a limited edition brew, though, so act fast if you’re dying to try this rockin’ blend.
