No this isn’t coffee made from corn. It’s Koffee made by Korn…the band that is! The band just announced their latest venture on twitter. Not yet out yet, it will be available October 26.
You can preorder it now. The cost is $14.99 for 12.2 oz of this fair trade dark roast blend. For $24.99, you can purchase the bundle of 12.2 oz Korn Koffee and a Korn Koffee mug.
They have teamed up with J. Gursey Coffee to find their perfect blend of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, Guatemalan Huehuetenango, and Organic Peru.
In this video from vocativ, you may want to rethink what you buy if you think you are getting Fair Trade coffee. Farmers have found out that if they try to get their coffee labeled as a higher priced “specialty” coffee, there isn’t much left to be called Fair Trade.
Jody wondered if there were any ideas for New Years resolutions regarding coffee. Here is what he found from about.com:
- Try something new. Whether it’s a new brew, a new roast, a new machine or grinder – switch it up.
- Watch your caffeine.
- Clean your machine. Make sure to follow manufacturer’s instructions.
- Get a new mug.
- Get ethical. Try products from smaller companies that offer organic, shade-grown, bird-friendly or fair-trade coffees or teas.
Point 2 about caffeine had Jody wondering “how much is too much?” Moderate doses are about 200 to 300 mg (about 2-4 cups brewed coffee a day) aren’t harmful. Heavier use may cause insomnia, nervousness, restlessness, irritability, stomach upset, fast heartbeat, muscle tremors
