It all started back in ancient Greece. A man by the name of Minos prayed to the mighty sea god Poseidon to grant him favor in the form of the finest coffee beans in Elysium. Poseidon granted his request, gifting Minos a medium coffee roast with aromas of chocolate and delicate tasting notes of almond, figs, and orange. A coffee truly fit for the gods.
Poseidon asked only that Minos roast the beans and serve up the coffee as an offering to the gods in return for their favor. Minos, thinking he was slick, decided he would keep the beans for himself while offering Poseidon some stale coffee from the land of the awakened siren instead.
Upon discovering the f**kery that was afoot, Poseidon rejected the foul brew of the siren by dumping it into the sea. Poseidon swore revenge for Minos’ arrogance and treachery before the gods. He decided to enchant Minos’ wife with an…unnatural and enthusiastic affinity for bulls. After some interspecies boot-knocking, of which we will spare the details, a child was born. A child, half man and half bull — deemed an abomination destined to live a life of solitude on the run from those who would claim his head.
In order to protect the child, his mother hid him away deep in the wilds near the African Great Lakes of the Congo. There, the child grew in both size and strength. He gained knowledge and power from the coffee beans that grew natural in the area. The coffee that he brewed rivaled that of the very coffee that was gifted to Minos, and with this new power the Minopour was born. For years he was hunted by the world's most legendary warriors in search of fame and glory. None who set out after him ever found glory — only a swift end at the hooves of The Minopour.
Legend has it that The Minopour emerged from his hidden dwelling, now walking a path of vengeance aimed at the malakas who cursed him. Behold, the mighty Minopour.
Part bull, part man — all vengeance.
