Wilco and Intelligentsia look to make a sweet cup of java

You can have it "Either Way." Wilco is getting set to launch Wilco Selections -- a line of regular and decaffeinated coffee beans through a partnership with Chicago-based Intelligentsia.

And as The Onion's A/V Club notes, this isn't the first foray into food for Wilco. The indie band has branded beer and a sandwich shop in Toronto. They're like the hippie-bearded, bizarro Kiss.

As for the coffee's flavor? Wilco's shop says it all:

The body has a light and silky quality, like fresh whipped cream, that beautifully compliments the ever-present note of citron, juniper berry and vanilla. As it cools, the cup blossoms into notes of confectioner's sugar, rosehips, and soft raisin, resonating on a pristine finish with a touch of milk chocolate.
Wilco is taking pre-orders on its site. Intelligentsia will begin roasting the beans on December 1 and shipping bags two days later.
