The Chicago-born coffee company Intelligentsia has announced that it will be releasing a brand new blend of its “Flecha Roja” coffee in collaboration with Annie Clark aka St. Vincent called “Bring Me Your Mugs” (after her St. Vincent track “Bring Me Your Loves.”)
Intelligentsia has previously collaborated with Wilco and Anticon for blends, but with Clark’s addition they now have an indie rock icon to rival James Murphy’s coffee prowess. Coffee site Sprudge shared a statement from Clark about her relationship to coffee which you can see below, alongside a picture of her new blend. “Bring Me Your Mugs” is on sale now in Intelligentsia stores and will soon be made available on St. Vincent’s website.
“I love coffee. I sometimes get excited at night thinking of the coffee I’ll get to drink in the morning. Coffee is reason to wake up. There are other reasons, of course. But coffee is the incentive, at the very least. I love Intelligentsia coffee. I have stood at their counter waiting for my order, like a fan waiting for a show. Eager. Expectant. So when my favorite coffee shop approached me about collaborating on a signature coffee, I was thrilled.”
