Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

Coffee was a beverage made by brewing the bi-podal seeds (beans) of coffee plants in hot water. While these plants are native primarily to South America on Earth, there are several varieties from other planets.

In 20th century Earth slang, coffee was sometimes referred to as "joe". When Vic Fontaine requested a "cup of joe" during a chat with Julian Bashir, the doctor misunderstood this as a reference to an unfamiliar word, "cuppajo". (DS9 novel: Avatar)

By the 21st century, coffee was commonly synthesized from kelp. This ersatz coffee was described as tasting like "parched sorghum and Nile Delta water at low tide on washday." (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky)

Klingons became familiar with coffee (transliterated into Klingonaase as "kafei") as one of the spoils of raids against Human colonies. For half of one of the Klingon Kethas's deep-space voyages, all the crew had to drink was Earth coffee and the engineer's "white hot". Kethas noted the two weren't a bad mix. (TOS novel: The Final Reflection)

Coffee drinkers

Number One of the USS Enterprise enjoyed coffee, and kept a supply of real ground coffee and un-synthetic demerara sugar. (EV comic: "Nor Iron Bars a Cage")

James T. Kirk acquired a taste for coffee in his youth, when his Aunt Ilsa would serve him coffee with an unusually large amount of milk and honey. In retrospect, Kirk considered it to be more like a "liquid candy bar" than a true cup of coffee. Kirk's mother prepared coffee for him in the same manner when he visited the family farm in 2267. (TOS novel: Final Frontier) Kirk continued to enjoy coffee as an adult. (TOS episode: "The Trouble with Tribbles") While working aboard the SS Ian Shelton following the Talin IV disaster, he was forced to drink "coffee" that had been dispensed in a small cube that had to be dissolved in hot water. Later, the ship's captain, Anne Gauvreau, was able to obtain real coffee beans; still, Kirk reflected, it didn't taste as good as the replicated blend available on his own ship. (TOS novel: Prime Directive)

Hikaru Sulu, while stranded on planet Alpha 177 in 2266, jokingly asked the Enterprise to lower down a pot of coffee to keep him and his landing party warm and alert. (TOS episode: "The Enemy Within")

In 2293, Leonard McCoy self-administered black coffee to weaken the effects of both Romulan ale and the hormonal musk of Klingon body odor. (TOS movie: Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

Captain Rachel Garrett enjoyed coffee with her sandwich and salad at lunch time. (ST short story: "Hour of Fire") She kept a stash of coffee beans and a grinder in her ready room, preferring her own coffee to replicated. (TLE novel: Well of Souls)

Captain Kathryn Janeway considered coffee a vital necessity of shipboard life. (VOY episode: "The Cloud") Following her apparent death in 2380, Q made a point of assuring her there were "bottomless cups" of coffee in the place she was taking her to. (TNG novel: Before Dishonor)

From The Vault

Coffee is a type of beverage, created by an infusion of ground coffee beans in a coffee machine and served hot in a coffee pot. The beverage is poured from a pot into coffee mugs. While regularly consumed in the Vault-Tec Vaults, unfortunately, coffee has never been found in the Wasteland.

There is more information available on this subject at Coffee on the English-language Wikipedia.

Coffee is a human beverage, created with ground coffee beans that are grown by plants which are native to Earth. The beverage has been widely popular for centuries among humans, and has been consumed since the 9th century, primarily because it naturally contains the drug caffeine, a stimulant that helps to keep humans alert. The coffee is cultivated very easily in warm and wet climate. Coffee is served in numerous restaurants and businesses such as Jim Dandy roadside diners and it is almost always served hot.[1] It is also commonly available on Food & Drink Dispensers which are standard on UNSC navy vessels.[2]

Dr. Catherine Halsey was a heavy drinker of coffee throughout most of her professional life.[3] Her office would often be filled with cups of coffee of varying ages, which she would drink hot or cold.[4]

On the map Alpha Site several cups of coffee can be found scattered around the tables of the ONI building interior.

From Lostpedia

Sawyer and Kate with a bundle of plantains gathered by Kate

After the crash of Flight 815, the survivors' main sources of food are fruit collected from the jungle, fish from the ocean, and DHARMA food from the Swan or the supply drop.


Foods gathered by the survivors

Collecting food is dangerous, hard work
Hurley's fruit salad, as Desmond predicts the future.
Charlie's fruit salad courtship of Claire in "Par Avion"

The survivors have several sources of food, but mainly just protein and carbohydrates. The survivors used remaining airplane food as their main source of food until it ran out around the time of the episode "Walkabout". This is depicted when Hurley delivers two trays of it to Claire in "Pilot, Part 1".


  • Pork from feral boars, generally hunted and killed by John Locke. (However, since filming with boars was found to be a production nightmare (Lost: On Location (Season 1)), boar has been deemphasized as part of the Lostaway diet.)
  • Seafood, including fish and sea urchin, usually procured by Jin, who was raised by a fisherman, and mussels, which can be pulled off the rocks at the beach.
  • Jin was seen chopping a fish on board The Elizabeth in "The Glass Ballerina". The red fish was likely an Onaga, a deep-water fish unlikely to be caught fishing off a sailboat.
  • The Tailies successfully caught, killed and cooked up a feral chicken, however, chickens have not been seen near the main camp. It is possible that Goodwin smuggled in the chicken from the Barracks.
  • Danielle is depicted in a deleted scene on the Season 1 DVDs as eating a raw egg, likely liberated from a bird's nest. In addition, in a deleted scene on the Season 2 DVDs, Rose is seen cooking powdered eggs.
  • Rabbits, Nathan and Bernard build a a trap which is supposed to catch rabbits in "The Other 48 Days" it is unknown however if they were successful. Alex also is skinning a rabbit in "Greatest Hits".


  • Fruit, including plantains, bananas, mangos, passion fruit, guava and papayas,

often gathered by Kate

  • Coconut milk and the flesh of the coconut.
  • Locke is seen eating an orange in "Pilot, Part 1" as Kate removes a pair of boots from a corpse.
  • The contents of Sun's garden, which have not been specifically identified but both herbs (which may be either medicinal and/or edible) and fruit tree saplings (specifically guava, passion fruit and mango) have been mentioned. ("Hearts and Minds")

Fruit salad

Fruit salad has appeared on the Island several times in Season 3. It seems Hurley is often the one preparing the salad, and this might be a result of the choices about his eating habits he made in the Season 2 episode, "Dave".

In "Par Avion", Charlie courts Claire using a surprise bowl of fruit salad.

DHARMA-branded foods

DHARMA food at Lost: The Auction
  • The DHARMA Initiative provides a range of DHARMA-branded staples familiar to consumers of a Western diet. This food, originally discovered in the Swan, was the source of a large feast in "Everybody Hates Hugo". The survivors later obtained more DHARMA foods from a supply drop. Some of these foods have an unnaturally long shelf life, as the ranch dressing, at least, can last for seven years without refrigeration.
  • Much of the food is labeled DI 9FFTR731.
  • List of DHARMA-supplied food:
    • Peanut butter
    • Apollo candy bars first found in the Swan pantry by Kate (who could not resist eating one), and by Hurley in a dream. Rose was also seen saving one for her missing husband Bernard.
    • Ranch composite
    • Dharmalars
    • Wine
    • Rum (Juliet drinks a bottle after the Freighter explodes.) ("There's No Place Like Home, Parts 2 & 3")
    • Macaroni and Cheese Supper
    • Green Beans
    • Salami sausage (among supplies Hurley was packing for his and Libby's picnic)
    • Chocolate cream cookies (Hurley gives Sawyer some advice on how to separate the cookie from the frosting)
    • Nutribar (Sawyer offers Hurley one on the hike to free Walt)
    • Fish crackers (look similar to Goldfish)
    • Tuna (Rose mentions it to Hurley while they're doing the survey and it looks like Kate and Jack are eating some during the party)

    • DHARMA Beer and Light Beer (seen in "Tricia Tanaka Is Dead")
    • Soda Crackers (seen in "Enter 77")

Coffee is a beverage made from seeds of the coffee plant from Earth. The term also spread to include similar beverages from other planets.

After an alert mobilised the crew of the USS Mumbai in the early hours of the morning Wheel suggested the best thing the ship's kitchen could do was prepare a lot of coffee. (TOSS # 19: "Condition Red")

In an alternate universe, Brendan Patol replicated a cup of coffee from the Virtuous's replicators, which he found to be a poor imitation of coffee. (Star Trek: Swiftfire: "There's No Angels Here")

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Coffee was a non-alcoholic beverage that was most often served extremely hot and made from a specific type of bean.

Emperor Palpatine owned farms on various planets that provided the beans to produce high quality coffee and vine-coffee, solely for the use of his Court.

Coffee could be prepared and dispensed from a coffee machine, and was usually served in a coffee cup.


Behind the scenes

During a discussion of the Death Star with the Emperor, Darth Vader, Wilhuff Tarkin and other high-ranking Imperial personnel, Wilhuff Tarkin drank some.
