Unless you’re nursing a hangover from the previous night’s metal festivities, coffee and heavy metal seem like an unlikely combination, Heineken or Jägermeister usually make better bedmates. Megadeth’s David Ellefson aims to change that with his boutique coffee house, Ellefson Coffee Co., which is holding its grand opening April 7th-9th. Get the details from the press release below.
Ellefson Coffee Co. Press Release:

The Ellefson Coffee Co. store has turned out to be an amazing way for David to have a permanent face in his hometown, while being able to tie in EMP, Jackson, Dean, SIT, and everything else in our universe. With the huge sense of Megadeth history in Jackson, we are excited to be able to create a really unique and amazing fan (and Coffee) experience, that, as predicted, is turning out to not only be a highlight for the people of Jackson, but a destination for Megadeth fans from around the World.
