STAR WARS COFFEE? A BRAND ON THE DARK SIDE..?

Yes, you can actually buy this... (Link below)

I'm not a Star Wars fan but I am a coffee fan. I just wonder will George Lucas sanction ANY product collaboration? I would love to see how this sells. It will probably fly out. Even if its just for the novelty of having an unopened batch in the kitchen.

"Get a taste of the Dark Side with this rich hand roasted coffee. Three diverse coffees and two different roasts create a full-bodied, sharp, cup with spicy undertones and smoky, dark-roasted complexity. Vader's Dark Roast Coffee is commonly enjoyed by Dark Lords of the Sith while planning new Death Star construction, but give into your anger, sample a steaming cup and you will be rewarded with power beyond your imagination."

Product Features

  • Gourmet whole bean coffee hand roasted by Stormtroopers
  • Perfect for Dark Lords of the Sith... or your friends and loved ones
  • Spicy undertones with smoky, dark-roasted complexity
  • Coffee blend is comprised of coffees from Africa and Indonesia. Even though these are not certified fair trade, they are specialty-grade coffees which means that droid farmers receive a higher price/pound, compared to exchange-grade coffees.
  • Officially licensed Star Wars product designed by ThinkGeek
  • Exclusively available at ThinkGeek
  • Each bag contains 12 Oz of whole bean coffee

KICKSTARTER - MASHABLE'S TOP SITE TO WATCH FOR 2011


Firmly back in the grind at Steak towers today and I was interested to see Kickstarter top the Mashable one to watch list for 2011. I thought there was something special about the concept when I noticed the Kickstarter funded Nano Watch via @bbcicecream. I really hope it takes off.
