Kraken coffee?

I saw this picture the other day on a Steampunk Facebook group page.  Now this seems to me to just be an advertisement for Kraken Rum, which I'd never heard of before, so I guess it's a good thing they're advertising themselves so well on social media.  (Sarcasm.)  Would you look at that!  I just gave Kraken Rum free advertising.  Oops, did it again.  Shit.

Well, I would still not be averse to trying this coffee some time... sounds delish!  I probably wouldn't buy Kraken Rum though.  I'd just use what I've got in the pantry.

Poetry Tuesday: "The Kraken" by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides: above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumbered and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
