PORTLAND, June 17 — The singer has collaborated with Stumptown Coffee Roasters, a coffee retailer based in Portland, Oregon.
The signature brew, classified as a single origin Indonesia Bies Penantan, has notes of “dates, nutmeg, and a long, chocolatey finish.”
It is sourced and assembled by the female-led Ketiara Cooperative, which collaborates with small-holder farmers within the Bies Penantan community in the Aceh province of Sumatra.
The coffee is processed with the wet-hulling technique, creating distinct notes and a heavy body.
Iggy Pop’s limited-edition coffee arrives in a black bag designed by the Godfather of Punk, which features his signature and a hand drawing.
A portion of the proceeds will go towards Girls Rock Camp Alliance, which is an international network that helps empower youth through music and songwriting.
