DID YOU KNOW … that coffee is the second-most traded commodity in the whole world, second only to crude oil. Cultivated in over 70 countries by thousands of independent farmers, coffee is one of the oldest commodities in the world.
And it doesn’t end here. Without coffee, we’d not be living like we do now. it is coffee that enables people to work. it is coffee that keeps economies going. it is coffee that powers whole nations!
If governments abolished coffee, there would be riots! Without it, most people would ceize to function! people would stop working. Voyager would have never made it through the delta quadrant. economies would collapse within days! people would kill eachother, running around screaming, looting supermarkets!
Without coffee, history would be completely different!
Jerry Seinfeld sums it up well:
“We want to do a lot of stuff; we’re not in great shape. We didn’t get a good night’s sleep. We’re a little depressed. Coffee solves all these problems in one delightful little cup.”
So I, as someone who suffers from withdrawal, hereby demand more gameplay around coffee!
Supply of Coffee in stations should automatically lower each day, to reflect the fact that it’s drank by a vast majority of people. (over 80% of USAmericans drink it daily!). there should be npc orders reflecting this. if the supply of coffee in stations goes low, then npc buy/sell orders need to go up accordingly.
there should be new blueprints allowing the creation of different types of served coffee, including, but not limited to:

Not only would these tremendously increase the realism of the game (coffee makes the world go round), it adds a great hilarity factor for marketing. i see tons of gameplay behind this, where people put themselves on missions to provide coffee for everyone! economy would improve, player retention would skyrocket, everyone would be god damn happy, and all because of coffee!
As coffee has a cultural, economical and technological significance throughout mankind’s history, and because my head hurts from withdrawal, i ask you:
Make it so!
