We conceptualized URBAN LEGEND
as a tribute to my hometown Jackson, MN, spotlighting the local legend of MARY JANE TERWILLEGAR the young girl from a local “Urban Legend”, immortalized in the Megadeth
song MARY JANE
.. In conversation with famed paranormal investigator and writer Adrian Lee, his new book Mysterious Midwest: Unwrapping Urban Legends and Ghostly Takes From The Dead
(which I wrote the forward for), contained the Story of MARY JANE, and we all thought what a cool idea to do a coffee blend, based around not only Adrian’s book, and the legend of Mary Jane, but a celebration of all things spooky. So we concocted the amazing roast that has become URBAN LEGEND,
a rich, bold, Earthy blend of premium Latin American, Indonesian, and East African coffees.
As if that wasn’t enough,we enlisted the services of legendary horror and comic book artist “Mister” Sam Shearon to create some imaging to make the bag as memorable as the coffee.
URBAN LEGEND is not only a premium coffee blend, but also a nod to Jackson, and the great people there, and to the scary Urban Legend we all lost sleep over.
At Ellefson Coffee Company, we take great strides to support local and independent businesses, and what better way to give back to one we truly love and support. So brew yourself a pot of Urban Legend, and sit back with a scary story. Tis’ the season.
