Progress Presents the Mohawk Blend!

mohawkWhole Foods picks up the Progress Mohawk Blend!


Don't fret. With the fall of Maxwell House, the disappearance of Juan Valdez, and the international disdain for the Starbucks brand, Mohawk and Progress Coffee saw the opportunity to join tribes and shock the world. We are here to help.

So get your ass up to Progress or Whole foods and load your throat-hole up with some hot caffeine syrup brilliance. Put your mouth where rock and roll meets progressive coffee excellence. Your eyes will pop open, the sun will rise, and you will enter a new world.
Now available at the Mohawk as well. Buy some for your Aunt Kathy and be the coolest cousin at your Christmas Party. Respek.

"Rock during the day with the Mohawk blend. Your friends will think you are cool."

"Learning how to think really means learning how to exercise some control over how and what you think...being conscious and aware enough to choose what you pay attention you construct meaning from experience. Because if you cannot exercise this kind of choice in adult life you will be totally hosed."
-David Foster Wallace addressing the graduating class of Kenyon College
