The trademark speed at which Rory and Lorelai speak in the Gilmore Girls franchise can be attributed to a globally loved bean juice (more commonly known as coffee). The two characters are seen frequenting Luke's Diner for their regular cup of java throughout the series, which was on air from 2000 to 2007 and later revived for a season by Netflix last November.
While both the town of Stars Hollow and the character Luke Danes are fictional elements of the show, actor Scott Patterson — who plays Danes on the series — is turning art into reality by launching his own line of coffee, reports Hello Giggles. Prepare to freak out a little bit.
"I'm developing my own coffee brand," Patterson tells WealthManagement.com. "We're almost ready to launch, but we want to have our ducks in a row before we come out with it."
The coffee line is called Scotty P's Big Mug Coffee, but there's not much else revealed about the line since Patterson is still working on the brew.
"Quality coffee is something that I am obsessed with," Patterson says. "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."
Last year, to promote the four-episode season, Netflix converted 200 coffee shops around the country to bear resemblance to the show's Luke's Diner. If the lines, wait time, and success of the marketing tactic is any indication, then Patterson's investment just might be a great hit among Gilmore Girls fans.
