A slam dunk? An alley-oop? Choose whatever basketball writing cliche you want for this news: Earlier this year, Colectivo and the Milwaukee Bucks teamed up on a new coffee brew – and now it's back.
Called Bucks Blend Coffee, the limited edition brew will relaunch at all 16 Wisconsin Colectivo locations as its Coffee of the Week beginning Monday, April 29 through Sunday, May 5. One-pound bags will also go on sale at the local coffee shops – with a dollar from each sale going toward the Bucks Foundation.
"We're thrilled to collaborate with the Milwaukee Bucks and the Milwaukee Bucks Foundation on this special coffee that will benefit our local community," said Colectivo vice president of marketing Scott Schwebel, in a release in February. "The Bucks' artwork – from the old MECCA floor to the uniforms to the logo – has always provided a source of inspiration for our graphic designer Kevin Callahan, which made this opportunity to offer our own artful interpretation of Bango especially exciting. Go Bucks!"
"Bucks Blend Coffee is a delicious way to celebrate your love for the Bucks, while each purchase of a one-pound bag will help support the Bucks Foundation," said Bucks and Fiserv Forum president Peter Feigin, in the February release. "The Bucks are proud to partner on Bucks Blend Coffee with Colectivo, a locally-owned and amazingly-creative company that recognizes the importance of giving back to the community."
As an added bonus, two Bucks tickets will be hidden in a coffee bag at one of Colectivo's locations, plus a sweepstakes will give away two additional tickets. For a chance at the latter, sign up for the giveaway at the register.
And congratulations to Colectivo and the Bucks organization for brewing up something almost as hot as a Brook Lopez heat check from far behind the arc.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
