When ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” play-by-play man Joe Tessitore referred to Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf as “Decaf Metcalf” last week, it went viral — but the gaffe has become more than a funny broadcasting blooper.

Volcanica Coffee, a company based in Georgia, has began selling "Decaf Metcalf” in 16-ounce bags.

The coffee is a medium roast, and the company’s website describes it as an “exquisite blend of decaffeinated beans from Guatemala and Papua New Guinea distinguishable by the sweet yet bold flavor and full rich body.”

Proceeds from sales will go toward charity. Metcalf is donating sales to the Prison Fellowship and Tessitore to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Metcalf, a rookie, was drafted in the second round. He has 705 yards and five touchdown catches this season.

And he already has his own coffee brand. Not bad for a 21-year-old.
