BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire -06/28/12)- Coffee-loving Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer prefers -- make that demands -- his cup o' joe-y have a bit of attitude, be forest- and farmer-friendly, and be bursting with flavors that seriously rock. His search for java perfection led him to develop his own special brew of fresh roasted, organic, fair trade Arabica coffee: Rockin' & Roastin' Coffee. Now on the road with Aerosmith for the Global Warming tour, Joey is introducing Rockin' & Roastin' Coffee -- the finest, purest kick-ass coffee on the planet to millions of fans across the country.
Using specially selected organic, free trade beans from Ethiopia, Guatemala and Sumatra, Joey has created colorful, rich and complex roasts from each region that are "music to your lips" -- the perfect expression of his passion for music, coffee and life.
"Aerosmith and I have spent a lifetime sharing our music and our lives with fans," Joey noted. "I bared my soul about my journey from the top to the bottom and back up in my book 'Hit Hard.' Now I am sharing another important facet of my life. It is another way my fans who have supported me at every turn can get to know more about me and join me in making the world a better place."
