Fans of Gilmore Girls know that coffee—drinking it, needing it, thinking about it—is part of the show’s foundation. Now one character is going to start selling it.
Scott Patterson, who plays coffee shop owner Luke on the series, revealed in a recent interview that he’s debuting his own line of coffee:
We’re almost ready to launch, but we want to have our ducks in a row before we come out with it. Quality coffee is something that I am obsessed with. It’s the thing I look forward to every morning and throughout the day and throughout the evening and now throughout the middle of the night.
He’ll be launching it under his own name, not as a Gilmore Girls tie-in, but Netflix did a bit of foreshadowing last fall when coffee shops across the country were turned into Luke’s Diner for a day, as promo for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
Regarding his return to the Netflix series, Patterson didn’t make any promises: “I’m not waiting around for that. You know, who the hell knows?”
Only coffee is certain.
