Welcome to Fred’s Roastery!
Leave behind the bleak and the boring and come enjoy a coffee experience from Fred Schneider, the frontman, of the iconic New Wave rock band The B-52s, also known as the “World’s Greatest Party Band.” With a long career fueled by coffee, the progression to exploring the connection between coffee culture and artistic expression was a natural fit—how visual arts and taste come together to create a multi-sensory joyful coffee experience.
The monster theme stems from one of Fred’s earlier side projects, which released a song called “Monster” that was banned by MTV. Since that time, mischievous monsters have become a further extension of Fred’s playful personality and the inspiration behind his signature coffee collection. With names such as “Javabuzz Rex,” Fred’s monsters continue their escapades today and roam the cosmos in search of the perfect coffee beans.
Fred’s Limited Editions
Every quarter Fred collaborates with other artists to design a coffee box and t-shirt for his unique coffee experience. While the creativity is flowing, Fred’s monsters are roaming remote galaxies and villages searching for an exceptional coffee for his new creation. These coffees are pulled directly from the farmers or the farmers’ appointed agents (representative or co-op) and are grown using entirely pesticide-free traditional methods.
Each coffee has its own unique distinguishing characteristics influenced by the soil, climate, and elevation of where each species is grown and the individual farmer’s talent and hard work. These coffees are worth the little extra expense, as they’re limited to the region and, in some instances, originate from a single farm. Each blend is limited to 1,000 orders, and a new coffee blend is released each quarter (four times a year).
