Aerosmith drummer Joey Kramer visited the retailer’s Franklin and Walpole locations Wednesday to debut his line of "Rockin’ & Roastin'" organic coffee.

Kramer posed for photos and signed bags of coffee.

“Living life on the road and keeping these crazy hours, I’ve developed an unparalleled appreciation for a good cup of coffee,” Kramer said in promotional materials.

The retailer’s Facebook page shows photos of Aerosmith fans and store workers posing in photos with Kramer.

The coffee is roasted by Comfort Foods, North Andover, Mass., in three varieties: two dark roasts, from Sumatra and Ethiopia, and one dark-medium from Guatemala.

Through June of 2014, Kramer will donate a portion of his coffee sales to Music Drives Us, which supplies grants for music programs to effect positive changes for people in need throughout New England
