How Star Wars Characters Make Their Coffee, A Story in Pictures

As any Star Wars fan will tell you there are always questions that are left unanswered: Why is Lando wearing Han Solo’s clothes at the end of Empire Strikes Back? How did Moff Gideon acquire the darksaber? Who let Palpatine smash? The galaxy far far away has always sparked numerous debates over the years and always seems to leave fans to theorize and ask questions about what has happened and what is to come. But one question has arisen that no one has thought to ask until now: how do your favorite Star Wars characters make their coffee?

In a hilarious tweet thread, @ViWiWrites answers this very question. From Poe to Vader to Luke Skywalker, everyone has a method that fits their personality. To be honest, I didn’t even know some of these coffee brewing methods existed. However, that’s a rabbit hole for another time. Some of these are spot on and if they were to make them into playing cards, I would definitely want to purchase the whole set.

There are only 13 characters here so hopefully the thread gets enough attention to prompt her to make more. I would love to know how Lando or Jabba the Hut make theirs. I’m assuming Jabba has a servant brew at room temperature so he can lick it bit by bit and Lando likes a smooth blend. For now, enjoy the answers to a question you never thought to ask about Star Wars.
