It's A Riot! Dark Matter Coffee 2023 RIOT Fest Collaborations

Parliament Funkadelic featuring George Clinton: Funk Uncut and Doobie in Your Funk

ALL THAT IS GOOD IS NASTY!

Your interplanetary dealers of funky coffee are here to announce the mothership of all collaborations has landed! In honor of THEE Star Child, George Clinton, we dropped TWO collaborative Coffee Cold Cans: Funk Uncut: a loud, jucy, all frills AND funk, straight coffee! And Doobie in Your Funk: a strawberry-cough terpene-bombed-out version of Funk Uncut with notes of berry, and grape.

As a celebration of both their performance at RIOT Fest and to commemmorate their farewell tour, we're also hosting an exclusive Parliament Funkadelic ft. George Clinton merch popup here at the Mothership--while supplies last! 

Big shoutout to Oscar Joyo for creating the beautiful artwork on these cans!

Merch only at The Mothership and Coffee Cold cans available at all of our stores!

COFFEE NOTES: 

For this blend, we definitely needed to bring the funk so for the base of this blend we used a juicy, funky natural processed Pacamara from El Rosario in El Salvador. Pacamaras are known for having some herbaceous, tea-like notes that work well with the natural processing method for this coffee to create a complex, unique cup profile.

  • Funk Uncut  Notes: Papaya, Oolong Tea, Demerara Sugar
  • Doobie in Your Funk Notes: berry, and grape, a noticeably different flavor profile!
*Terpenes are organic compounds produced in plants, flowers, and botanicals that are extremely aromatic. There are several companies that work to create terpene blends that mimic the flavors found in specific strains of cannabis such as the Grape Ape used in our coffee cold version of Chronikkah. This coffee cold does not contain alcohol, CBD or THC.*, with terpenes. Don't worry, it's just coffee...we don't want our funk stepped on!

The Black Angels: Limited Coffee Cold

HEAD FOR THE HILLS, PICK UP CANS ON THE WAY

To celebrate their Chicago performances at Chop Shop, RIOT Fest, AND special solo acoustic performances at Star Lounge, we teamed up once again with the modern psychedelic masters, The Black Angels, from Austin, Texas for a new Coffee Cold can! We used double-honey processed coffees from the Pacas Family for our fuzz-toned darlings.

COFFEE NOTES: 

The base of this blend is a honey-processed Pacas from Vista Hermosa, producing an elegant, bright cup. We layered the blend like a good reverb, with a honey-processed Bourbon and Pacas blend of beans that comes from the Santa Ana region. This bean has loads of body, with a sweet, caramel-like profile. Together these beans make an approachable iced coffee that is delicious on its own and also pairs well with cream and sugar.
