Gilmore Girls‘ curmudgeonly Luke Danes may have served coffee for a living, but he would probably loathe the idea of starting his own coffee brand. Scott Patterson, the actor who plays Luke, has no such inhibitions, and decided to make something of his own obsession with coffee. Patterson told WealthManagement.com that Scotty P’s Big Mug Coffee is expected to launch soon.
“We’re almost ready to launch, but we want to have our ducks in a row before we come out with it,” Patterson said in the interview. “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.”
Gilmore Girls fans will recall that Lorelai’s father Richard expressed interest in franchising Luke’s Diner back in Season 5, but Luke wasn’t having it it even resurfaced in the Netflix revival, and Luke’s mind hadn’t changed.
The least Patterson can do is celebrate the launch with some good old fashioned Luke’s Diner service.
