It's A Riot! Dark Matter Coffee 2022 Riot Fest Collaborations
TAKING BACK SUNDAY X DARK MATTER COFFEE
COFFEE WITHOUT THE 'E'
Our first collaboration can for Riot Fest is with Long Island's own Taking Back Sunday. Most famous for their incredible run of recordsTell All Your Friends(which is celebrating it's 20th anniversary this year),Where You Want To Be,andLouder Now,these guys helped to forge and define the 2000's rock scene. With a number of hits under their belt and 20+ years as a band, you'd think any band would be satisfied with resting on their laurels, but Taking Back Sunday continues to crank out high-quality rock as recently as 2016's Tidal Wave.
The blend contains two different Guatemalan beans from our friends at Finca San Jeronimo. A washed Sarchimor makes up the base of this blend with a honey processed Catuai being a bright accent coffee. Together they create a nutty, sweet coffee cold with notes of baking spice.
THE WONDER YEARS X DARK MATTER COFFEE
THE BUZZ GOES ON FOREVER
Our collaboration with The Wonder Years shares artwork with their September 2022 album, The Hum Goes On Forever on Hopeless Records. The Hum Goes on Forever is filled with emotional punk fused with pop sensibility, with the a more mature sad-yet-hopeful lyricism than their previous work.
The artwork reminds us of the beautiful beaches and sunsets of El Salvador, inspiring the coffee used for this collaboration. For this coffee cold, there is just one coffee inside, a honey processed Bourbon from Santa Petrona in El Salvador. Federico's attention to detail with processing is showcased in this juicy, complex Bourbon that is shade dried on raised beds to maximize the fermentation of all the sticky, sweet mucilage on the pulped coffee.
