For us, coffee and vinyl records compliment one another. Creating specialty coffee is a ritual in the same way that spinning vinyl is. Both require one to take a little extra time to focus on the product and method.
As fans of coffee, we care about origin, roaster, roast profile, and extraction. Brewing a cup of fantastic coffee makes the consumer a part of the process that begins with the farmer and ends with that magical liquid in your mug. The consumer has the power and control to bring out the best in that coffee.
We believe the musical experience is heightened on vinyl, allowing the listener to feel a part of the musical process. Pulling out a vinyl record from the shelf, dropping the needle, staring at the cover, and placing it prominently by the turntable allows you to be part of the magic.
Combining these two experiences is what inspired us to open our café and introduce this subscription service. We cherish those moments during the week when we can drop the needle, prepare a pour over, relax, and sink into the experience.
Our subscription delivers that experience to you in a box sent directly to your door every two months, containing a bag of coffee from a rotating selection of the finest international roasters, and one record chosen based on the coffee or coffee roaster's country of origin. We listen to records and drink coffee all day, every day at our shop. This subscription service is our way of including you in our daily ritual of coffee and music. We want to welcome you to the Purple Llama, whether you're here with us in person, or just in spirit!
To get this subscription off the ground we've launched a Kickstarter campaign. Through the Kickstarter you can subscribe for one, two, or three months (shipped every other month), or you can show your support with a donation in exchange for our undying gratitude!
