They also have a twitter 

If anyone is interested I posted their tweets in the Green Day tweets thread. I also posted their Instagram posts in the Green Day Instagram thread (as the company belongs to two members of the band) so it's easy to browse through them without clogging this thread with pictures.

I think this is cool, but I also think Billie is the master of stupid sh*t.

Private Ale.

first i thought this was a joke. In my country ,there is this one celebrity that we mocked because he opened a kebab restaurant. But now i see these news as such cool thing for celebrities to do.I support.

Nice that they're going into business together with something that benefits the environment! Seems like something they have a real interest in since they're so into coffee too. Love the picture on GDA, I see Billie has it on a t shirt already :D

I've grown up so much that I can now differentiate between coffee that is the absolute scum of the earth and coffee that you can drink without getting scurvy. 

 

Most likely this coffee will never reach my part of the earth, and if it does, I'm willing to bet my foreskin that it's so expensive that the scurvy is worth the pain.

Origin of the idea is probably from the Pop Disaster Tour.

I'm disappointed 'cause I thought this was a Christmas spam thread /hint over.As a coffee lover, I have to approve.

I'm curious what they come up with next. These guys are ready to do business with everything

I think everyone should rep me for being the first one to assist Mike and Billie in their endeavors and order a pound.  The price was actually not bad, $12.99 a pound isn't bad for good coffee.  The shipping cost on the other hand was pretty outrageous.  

What was interesting is they only take paypal as a payment method.  I always use it when available but I"ve never seen a business that only offers it as a payment method before.

Cheapest way to accept credit cards online and also fastest way as well I bet with time they'll offer PayPal and direct cc/debit payments

It's nice that Mike and Billie are going into business together but I honestly don't see how this will be a successful business. If people aren't particularly fussed about their coffee they will just buy it in a supermarket or local convenience store whereas if they are obsessed with coffee they will buy it from a specialist shop or local coffeehouse. Either way if you actually drink coffee regularly then you won't want to have the hassle of having to order online and wait for delivery every time you need more! Also it's nice that they are trying to be environmentally friendly etc but one has to weigh up biodegradable packaging (most packaging on coffee is recyclable anyway) verses the fact that since they don't have a store the product must be delivered therefore that involves the use of vehicles and eliminates the option for the buyer to walk/use public transport or cycle etc all of which is probably more beneficial. Just saying.

I'm sure they've consulted with people who know about business to see if their business model is workable and whether it's worthwhile giving it a shot. It might be that coffee is such a popular product there's room in the market for this kind of company. But luckily they can afford to take the chance either way :P
