gebGrahamwich: Hour One 

Dateline: Chicago, Time Out Chicago

In the mornings, grahamwich will sell only coffee and pastries. The coffee is French press from SmartCup (Elliot says grahamwich is the only place in the city that uses take-out French press cups, which replicate the French press process in disposable plastic); the pastries come from Fritz.

I like it because you can get a stronger cup, and it’s a great way to try all of the pricey blends that line the walls (for the price of a regular cup).

Rob Zombie French Roast Organic Whole Bean CoffeeThe illustrious man of horror — both in film and rock — is known for many things, but now Rob Zombie wants to add coffee to his repertoire. As such, he’s selling his own Hellbilly line of beans.

“What can I say? I f—ing love coffee,” Zombie told Noisecreep. “I started drinking this magic drink when I was a little kid and never stopped. So that’s the reason I now have my own Hellbilly brew; 24/7, cranked on black gold! Hell yeah, let’s go!” With green coffee beans now at a value higher than ever before, we can all call our morning cups liquid gold.

Right now, Hellbilly’s whole roasted beans can be ordered through Zombie’s websitewith two different styles available: a French blend and a Peruvian. Both are certified 100 percent organic.
