A common saying in Iowa is “Is this Heaven? No, it’s Iowa”, which stems from the famous movie, Field of Dreams. It was only right that our first featured roaster Ross Street Roasting and head roaster Brian Gumm decided to pay homage to his heritage and curate a unique, one of a kind coffee called “Is this Heaven? No, it’s Coffee.” The perfect way to experience Iowa through premium small-batch coffee.
Wanting to provide a completely unique experience of its own, we partnered with local artist, John Bosley, from Bozz Prints to offer one of his legendary pieces that connect the coffee to the land it comes from. On the coffee bag, you will find the 8x10 layers of Iowa print that is exclusively made for Lokoly and this box, along with his layers of Iowa mug.
About the Coffee:
Roaster Brian said, "This blend represents the hard work ethic so common amongst Iowans, as well as a phenomenon called 'Iowa Nice.' We're not perfect, but Iowans do have a reputation for being pleasant to be around. So no, it's not heaven - but for Iowans who love their home state, it's pretty darn close."
This coffee is a light-medium roast holding notes of citrus, berry, and caramel.

About the Print:
“It’s inspired by all the great things Iowa has to offer: blue skies, green fields, and heritage of biking the countryside.” John made this offering exclusively for our community, and it is only available through our coffee club. We are proud to partner with Bozz Prints, a unique business that gives you the full experience of Iowa.
So is this heaven? No, it’s coffee. But what could be more inspiring? Or enduring?
