Bonnie "Prince" Billy Sells His Own Organic Coffee
Will Oldham, aka Bonnie "Prince" Billy
Be still, our hearts: Will Oldham, the musician/actor otherwise known as Bonnie "Prince" Billy, is selling his own blend of organic Kona coffee. The Bonny Billy Blend, as it's called, is a limited-edition blend of Kona Rose Coffee sold in half-pound and pound bags exclusively through Oldham's record label, Drag City.
But how does it taste compared to, say, your average Starbucks brew? More fragile, we imagine, and nostalgic. Like a liquid accompaniment to paint chipping from an old Southern barn. Like drinking a beard.
Drag City says Billy Blend has "overtones of chocolate, leather and non-wacky tobaccy." We don't know what that means exactly, but it sounds about right, too.
