Coffee cocktail recommendations: In a Negroni, replace the vermouth with cold Cassiopeia. When it collides with the Campari and gin it adds a smokey flavor. It goes great with Mezcal and Tequila, also. 

Inspiration behind the name: During a visit to Bryce Canyon National Park a Park Ranger pointed out the constellation and mentioned her Ethiopian connections. Great coffee comes from Ethiopia and Cassiopeia is a great name

Story of Cassiopeia

In Greek mythology, Cassiopeia was the Queen of Aethiopia (modern day Ethiopia).

She was banished to the sky by Poseidon, God of the Sea, for boasting that her daughter Andromeda was more beautiful than the spirits of the sea.

As a constellation of the North Sky, located in the Milky Way galaxy, she is recognizable by a ‘W’ shape. Her name has appeared in ancient Phoenician texts as meaning ‘rose colored face’ and ‘cassia juice,’ the Latinized form of the Greek Κασσιόπεια or Cassiopeia.

*A limited edition print of Cassiopeia is included with each order.
