James Murphy isn’t the only indie-rock titan with a brand of signature coffee. Intelligentsia recently announced the launch of “Bring Me Your Mugs”, created by none other than St. Vincent’s Annie Clark.
As Intelligentsia explained: “The selection of coffees from Flecha Roja, Costa Rica was made by Clark herself, after she and Intelligentsia discovered their mutual admiration for each other’s respective work. A series of samples were sent to the artist on her ‘Digital Witness’ global tour, with Flecha Roja being her personal favorite selection.”
In a statement, Clark added: “I love coffee. I sometimes get excited at night thinking of the coffee I’ll get to drink in the morning. Coffee is reason to wake up. There are other reasons, of course. But coffee is the incentive, at the very least. I love Intelligentsia coffee. I have stood at their counter waiting for my order, like a fan waiting for a show. Eager. Expectant. So when my favorite coffee shop approached me about collaborating on a signature coffee, I was thrilled.”
The name, “Bring Me Your Mugs”, is a play on the song “Bring Me Your Loves” from Clark’s latest LP, St. Vincent. The coffee is available at all of Intelligentsia’s locations in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York City, as well as on St. Vincent’s website.
