Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson has released a blend of coffee called Kenya Thrash.

The latest product from Ellefson Coffee Co is described as “bold high-octane blend of 90% Kenya-Kichwa Arabica Beans, and 10% India Robusta, roasted with a kick, for a high blend of flavour and function.”

Ellefson Coffee Co previously released a blend called Roast In Peace.

Ellefson says: “My love for coffee has accompanied me around the world for my entire musical career. Just like the spirit of a culture or the melody of a song, the enjoyment of coffee brings people together and creates harmony among us.

“The beans in this bag are traceable to their global origin and exemplify the spirit and culture of the people who grew them.”

“It is my aim to bring this roast to our tables and awake our taste buds, fire up our rock n roll spirits and continue the global fellowship of music, art and coffee. May you roast in peace.”

Kenya Thrash comes in a distinctive red metallic bag and offers “an earthy and savoury blend, with distinct notes of grapefruit and black pepper. Kenya Thrash is a guaranteed wake up call to body, mind, and tastebuds.”

The coffee is available online from
