James Murphy Coffee Coming Soon?
Former LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy (it still hurts to type those words) is a noted foodie, as anyone who read this awesomely absurd GQ article can tell you. And like Bonnie “Prince” Billy before him, he’s planning on giving the world his own blend of coffee. As Grub Street reports, Murphy is planning on developing his own blend of espresso, which he plans to sell in one single shop, and he’s pretty hands-on with the process.
According to Murphy himself, he plans to “just go to a roaster who lives near me and start tweaking beans and temperatures… I thought it would be fun. I have beans that I like. I like this sometimes and that sometimes. Sometimes in the middle.” He’s currently negotiating with this unnamed roaster. And I have to say: This coffee is going to have to be pretty goddam good for me to feel OK about LCD Soundsystem not being a thing anymore.
The comments section is obviously the place for everyone’s best LCD-related coffee puns. Have at it.
