Because literally every celebrity must have his or her own brand of beverage these days, ’90s nu-metal band Korn has now released its very own coffee blend. The dark roast, called Korn Koffee, was produced in collaboration with J. Gursey Fine Coffee & Tea, and comes in a green bag sold on the band’s website.
As it turns out, the band members are koffee connoisseurs who seek out the best brews when they’re on tour. “It’s good to have something to really kick you in the pants in the morning,” dreadlocked guitarist James “Munky” Shaffer says in a Facebook Live video with Revolver Magazine. The blend is a combination of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, Guatemalan Huehuetenango, organic Peru beans, and Vintage Black Diamond blend from J.Gursey. “It has a kick,” says drummer Ray Luzier of the koffee blend. The bags retail for $15 — or $24 for a 12.2-ounce bag and a Korn Koffee mug — aka more than the cost of the band’s last album.
Here, you can witness the band members fondling koffee beans and stirring them in a roaster to music we’ve spent at least 18 years trying to forget.

Clearly we’ve finally hit the rock bottom of the ’90s nostalgia revival.
