Created by Gilbert Shelton, The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers started as an underground comix in 1968 and today is one of the most iconic underground comix of all time.
Following the zany antics of the three Freak Brothers (not actual brothers) and their much smarter cat, the Freaks quickly became the three stooges of counterculture while rapidly building a loyal, worldwide following. Now an adult animated show that can be seen all over the world, the Freaks are attracting a new generation of fans, while still bringing their far-out adventures.
"Artist Series" & Collaboration Offerings
We love collaborating with artists, musicians, athletes and cultural icons all whom share a love for Specialty coffee. We truly believe that the art and coffee have common interest in bringing ideas and communities together. The power of coffee is real.

At Onyx, we do not believe in the censorship of art. We are a group of individuals made up of all sorts of beliefs, ethnicities, creeds, world views, preferences, cultures and backgrounds. All are welcome. This means we reside in the awkward, monotonous, unpopular, "non-hot-take" central position. We partner with artists across mediums that have varying narratives. We do this because we prefer diverse ideas, thought provoking philosophies, and hold a strong commitment thinking and creating anti-echo chambers. Occasionally, we’ve seen the extreme left or the far right move to "cancel", "ban" or "shame" us for the content of our artists. Thank you to those that listen before speaking, consider before typing, and lead with compassion and not agendas. We can all benefit from difference.
As with all our Collaborations we Split all profits of the coffee sales with the artists. 50% and 50%
About the Blend
This coffee is made to please everyone despite age, background, coffee experience, or brew method. The blend is composed of a washed Colombian coffee, which provides sweetness and caramelized sugars, coming across as the caramel and dark chocolate notes in the cup, while a washed Ethiopian coffee incorporates citric acid content for a clean finish and overall balance. The combination of the two coffees pre-blended also conflates esters and acidities resulting in those baked walnut and apple flavors. The tactile of the coffee is a medium weight. It’s silky upfront, round on the palate, you’ll notice the citrus flavors on the sides of your tongue and the finish lingers long with apple and caramelized nuts. Feel excited that the coffee you are tasting is always in season, and therefore, it is cupping and tasting to its full potential.
