12 Times Lorelai Gilmore Captured All of Your Feelings About Coffee

Plus, a brand new quote from the revival.

If you’ve been obsessively following the Gilmore Girls: A Year In the Life updates, you might have gone to the recent Luke’s Diner pop up near you to celebrate the show’s 16th anniversary. But what you may not have noticed is the tiny (but significant) reveal made on a few select coffee cups. Each cup had a quote about coffee from Lorelai, who was famous for rambling about her need for caffeine. And it seems like nothing has changed in the new episodes, because a quote was released on the Luke’s Diner coffee cups from A Year In the Life! We spotted it on Instagram—you can see the full quote below.

Almost missed that, right? We were happy to see that Lorelai is still drinking her six to eight cups per day. To celebrate this new information, and use it as an excuse to revisit our favorite show, we rounded up 11 more quotes that exemplify just how much Lorelai (and all of us) love our coffee.


“Coffee-coffee-coffee is a saying. Like an exaggeration. It’s a funny, desperate cry for caffeine.”


“I can’t stop drinking the coffee, I stop drinking coffee, I stop doing the standing, and the walking, and the words-putting-into-sentences doing.”


“Nothing says coffee like six in the morning.”


“I need coffee, whatever form you got, I haven’t had it all day. I’ll drink it, shoot it, eat it, snort it, whatever form it’s in.”


“Coffee, please, and a shot of cynicism.”

“Let’s not stray too far from the coffee cart. I can barely feel my feet this morning.”


“How strong do you like your coffee, because I’ve built up such a tolerance to it I usually make it too intense for most people.”


“I need coffee. Extra strong. Double caf. Triple caf. No, forget the caf. Throw in the whole cow and serve it to this man right here!”


“Man, I will say anything for a cup of coffee.”
