DJCG (Chicken George) is a loveable force that has been involved in the Austin music scene for decades. He has been recently diagnosed with Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma (CTCL), a very rare type of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
He needs the community's help to get well and back behind the turntables! Every bag that you drink supports DJCG with his fight against cancer.
This coffee is priced in a "pay what you can" format, meaning this coffee can be purchased at whatever price you can afford.

Try Hard's relationship with DJCG
Last year, Try Hard released a coffee called "Rule of 3" in collaboration with DJCG's hip hop trio Third Root. This project brought attention to Third Root's ethos: the formation of a community for the purpose of empowerment and education. In addition to his community impact projects, CG paved the way for many other musical collaborations for Try Hard. This project opened our eyes to the possibility of continued collaboration with local artists and created a concrete avenue for Try Hard to support local artists and communities. CG's involvement with Austin Boogie Crew allowed us to create and curate a "Locals Only" vinyl section in our shop, which is now a staple way for us to continually spotlight local artists.
