'Polygondwanaland' | King Gizzard X Fuzz

'Polygondwanaland' | King Gizzard X Fuzz

We are ecstatic to present our 13th installation of the Fuzz Artist Series; a recurring, collaborative project highlighting exceptional coffees and unique creatives.

This iteration we’re pleased to team up with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, a band of eclectic psych-rock juggernauts that continually deliver albums that push the envelope. As part of the band’s bootlegger series in which the group gives the public free rein to release selected works, we've paired a show stopper of a coffee with a Salton-Sea Exclusive pressing of  their standout record "Polygondwanaland" . 

The group’s 12th studio album and the fourth of five albums released in 2017 alone, is arguably one of their finest works. The record takes listeners on a cerebral 45 minute journey compromised of astonishing instrumentation, expansive production, and beautifully creative storytelling. This is album is truly meant to be listened to from start to finish and we say this with confidence, that once it starts, you won’t want it to stop.

For the coffee we've sourced an extremely unique Natural Congo exhibiting seriously complex sweetness, funky fruits, and a decadent creamy body.

Notes from the importer (Coffee Shrub): 
The Katana station is one of a handful of Congo coffee processing sites under a privately ran coffee project called Virunga Coffee. Their primary goals have been to help increase production and the overall quality of the coffee through investment in infrastructure like wet mills and raised drying beds, farmer outreach and access to the global market. The Katana site is located in South Kivu and serves several hundred farmers in the region. Katana sits at 1700 meters above sea level and the farmed area spans a range of 1450 to 1750 meters, benefiting from high altitude and nutrient rich, volcanic soil. Farmers are growing Blue Mountain, a mutation of Typica first discovered in the Jamaica's Blue Mountains. Katana are only producing natural and honey process coffees which have a much lower demand for water. The Virunga Coffee group have also assisted with certifications (UTZ and Organic) that not only lend to sustainable agricultural practice, but also ensure an added price premium for the coffee.
