Yes, David Lynch has his own coffee. Because of course.
On Sunday, May 21st, David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” heads to Showtime for the limited revival that fans of the original series probably never expected to actually see. Yes, 18 brand new hours of “Twin Peaks” are just a couple months away, and all of your favorite actors will be reprising all of your favorite roles. So start getting excited. Because oh boy does this promise to be a treat.
Personally speaking, I am not a diehard “Twin Peaks” fan, but that’s only because, I must admit, I’ve yet to watch the series in its entirety. In fact, it was only this past weekend that I began binging the original show on Netflix, intent on catching up before the big two-hour premiere in May. I realize I’m a couple decades late to the party here, but hey, it’s never too late… right?
At the time of writing this post, I’m a mere two episodes into “Twin Peaks,” but I’ve already found myself drawn deeply into the peculiar quirks and charms of the show and the fictional town that it’s set in. Kyle MacLachan is an absolute delight as Agent Dale Cooper, and there’s just such a strange quality to the whole thing that, while sometimes off-putting, I can’t help but be into.
I guess I’m fast becoming a “Twin Peaks” fan, is what I’m saying.
One thing that “Twin Peaks” does really well is make you crave a good cup of coffee, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that co-creator David Lynch enjoys his coffee as much as Dale Cooper does. But while Cooper has a particular affinity for diner coffee, Lynch has a more refined palate. He’s into the best of the best, and wouldn’t ya know it, he makes some of the best!
Sold exclusively through Java Distribution, David Lynch Coffee is available in three different varieties, and it’s taste-tested by Lynch himself to ensure it’s the best it can be:
Choosing only organically grown beans, David Lynch established an extensive, personalized testing method, and began to systematically narrow down the field of his favorite roasts and beans. He eventually chose three unique coffee blends to package under his own label: Organic House Blend, Organic Espresso Roast, and Organic Decaf House Blend.
As I sit here writing this post, I’m sipping a cup of Lynch’s Organic House Blend, which I’ve added some Irish creme to. Over the years, I’ve purchased several bags of this stuff, and being completely honest, it’s the best cup of coffee I’ve ever brewed in my own home. While some artists slap their name on food products to make a quick buck, Lynch obviously cares about the quality of the coffee he’s put his on – he once described a good cup of coffee as “a good friend,” so he’s not messing around here – and it shows. With no bitter or acidic taste, Lynch’s coffee is not just bursting with flavor but it’s also smooth as can be; if you find yourself thinking, “Now this is a damn fine cup of coffee” while drinking it, just know you’re not alone. That’s kind of the idea.
I can think of no better way to prepare for the return of “Twin Peaks” than by revisiting the series with some David Lynch coffee by your side. Grab some donuts too. And enjoy.
