In a feat of investigative journalism worthy of Woodward and Bernstein, Kelly Conaboy at Gawker’s Morning After went all out to discover how good Luke’s coffee really was.
Sleazy boy from the Pilot episode: You make that look really good.
Lorelai: Oh it is really good. It’s the best coffee in town.
Conaboy attempts to replicate Luke’s special brew but is sadly disappointed.
I did not add any cream, because Rory and Lorelai did not typically add any cream to their Luke’s Diner coffee, and tried the coffee. It was not great.
Check out her entire journey here.
I wonder what Luke did to make it special. Tripling the recommended quantities maybe. Or lining his mugs with coke, now that would give it wings.
Has anyone else tried this? Any tips on making “Luke’s coffee”?
What do you think made it special? Or was Lorelai deluded? Is it possible that she didn’t know good coffee?
