Because having Bonnie “Prince” Billy-themed coffee just isn’t enough, the world could soon be getting a blend created by James Murphy, he (weepingly and) formerly of LCD Soundsystem. He broke the news in an interview with the New Yorker‘s Grub Street, in which he outlines that he wants to craft his own line of espresso.
When asked why he decided to go ahead with this idea, Murphy explained that he “make[s] a lot of coffee.”Apparently his girlfriend bought him “a training course with the world champion,” something he’s going to do when he gets back to London. Hmm, so maybe that should make us feel even better about this? I know I do. Also, this:
He plans to “just go to a roaster who lives near me and start tweaking beans and temperatures.” Why? “I thought it would be fun. I have beans that I like. I like this sometimes and that sometimes. Sometimes in the middle.”
I think it’s time for another cup, myself. Damn you, James Murphy. [Stereogum]
