According to Artery Community Roaster's, this coffee is named after Bo Jackson, who has a speech stutter. Bo was a legendary athlete. He was one of the greatest college football players of all time and is the only athlete to be named an All-Star in two major American sports.
Because Bo seemed to struggle with the word 'I', he worked with his therapist to refer to himself in the third person, realizing that saying his name aloud helped lessen his stutter. This laid the groundwork for his world famous catchphrase, "Bo knows!".
Much like Bo, this is a two-sport coffee, as it can shine as both a medium-dark filter roast, or as an espresso.
Not only does this coffee have a great name and taste like a dream (whatever that means), it's also grown by an amazing group of producers, the Baho Ikizere Women group.
