We were fans of Charming Beard Coffee [and the fellas that brew it] long before they offered to release a cityhomeCOLLECTIVE-branded bag of holy-shit-that's-good coffee. Now it's more of a praise-and-worship situation.
Charming Beard's release last week of four premium lines of the good stuff was a cool-ass collaboration with cityhomeCOLLECTIVE, Nobrow Coffee Werks, Zuriick, and Charming Beard themselves. According to the fellas, "We're bringing in some coffees that we believe are without parallel." And why the co-branding? "Our name is on the bag. Their name is on the bag. We believe in what they're doing and we think/hope it's reciprocal." You're damn straight it is, sons. Right back atcha.
The release party was a cozy little gathering in Caputo's at 15th & 15th, where we basked in the glory of our own coffee line and the smell of some seriously baroque beans. You should buy them. And keep the bag. And frame it. Whatever you want, it's your life. We have some COLLECTIVE bags right here in our office for purchase, or you can find a bag or two at Nobrow [179 W 900 S] and revel in your own cup of joy.
