Thornton also says that he favors "French Roast coffee, sometimes black and sometimes with soy cream." Meanwhile, he and his band the Boxmasters have partnered with gourmet coffee distributor Coffee Fool in creating a boutique Kona-based blend for sale online.
The press release for The Boxmasters' Special Brew states: "This brew reeks diner waffle batter with smoky undertones." Hmm ... sounds about right. Thornton's fellow Boxmaster, Mike Butler, confesses to Spinner that he never really enjoyed going to coffeehouses or java joints, preferring truck stops and greasy spoons instead. "You rarely see a bunch of 20-somethings in $300 jeans and wireless Bluetooth headsets, sipping their lattes with their heads buried in a laptop working on their 'screenplay' in a truck stop," he says.
True dat. But then again, you probably won't find the Boxmasters' Special Brew in Waffle Houses, either. The Kona blend is available online at www.coffeefool.com. The Boxmasters, meanwhile, will hit the road in July, supporting their upcoming self-titled 2-CD set.
