Iggy Pop is releasing his own signature brand of coffee


Now we’re all well aware that Iggy Pop has sampled his fair share of stimulants over the years, but a collaboration with Stumptown coffee has caught us all by surprise.

The designated “Godfather of Punk” is adding a subtle hint of nutmeg to his daily life and single-origin Indonesia Bies Penantan coffee hit the shelves and made available for public sale.

Iggy’s coffee, which will be produced by the Bies Penantan community in the province of Aceh, Sumatra, comes as part of the female-led Ketiara Cooperative as part of a Stumptown initiative.

With Iggy having a say in the flavours of the coffee, the former Stooges frontman has had more of a hands-on approach with the packaged and has personally designed the black bag.

Apparently, Iggy’s coffee is a mixture of “dates, nutmeg, and a long, chocolatey finish.”

Ooo, I say.

In other Iggy Pop related news, the singer will appear in Jim Jarmusch’s new zombie film, The Dead Don’t Die, alongside the likes of Bill Murray, Tom Waits, Tilda Swinton and more.

The film, which was given its premiere at Cannes in May, was handed a wide release on June 14th in what is Jarmusch’s first full length feature film since 2016’s Paterson.

The lead in that role, Adam Driver, has already been confirmed as a member of The Dead Don’t Die. Alongside Driver, expect to see the likes of Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, Bill Murray Selena Gomez, Chloë Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, and Steve Buscemi in what is an all-star cast. 

In more good news, Murray who plays a police officer in the film, labelled the script “hilarious” back in March, said this to Philly: “I’ve got a good job coming up. Brace yourself: It’s a zombie movie.” 

Murray added: “Jim Jarmusch has written a zombie script that’s so hilarious and it has a cast of great actors: Rosie Perez, Daniel Craig. It’s titled The Dead Don’t Die, and it shoots over the summer. But, no, I will not play a zombie.”
