What would’ve happened to Lorelai Gilmore if she hadn’t met Luke Danes? Who would she have ended up with? Most importantly, who else would’ve provided her with endless amounts of coffee throughout the day? No one knows, and thankfully, no one will ever have to, but it seems like Scott Patterson, the actor who played Luke, is a coffee angel IRL too.
In an interview published last week on Wealth Management, Patterson told the financial website that he’s currently developing his own coffee brand, and no, it won’t be called Luke’s.
“We’re almost ready to launch, but we want to have our ducks in a row before we come out with it,” he said. “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. It’s going to be called Scotty P’s Big Mug Coffee.”
Gilmore Girls ran for seven seasons from 2000-2007 and quickly developed a cult following that has lived on even after the final season. In partnership with Netflix, the show’s creators had the chance to bring it back for four, hour-and-a-half episodes called Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life. It was amazing, and because there doesn’t seem to be a part two on the horizon just yet, this is exciting news for GG lovers everywhere. We’re needy fans and we can’t let go, so Scott’s project is another small way for us to hold on to the world of Gilmore Girls, even if it is an entirely separate business venture.

Last year, prior to the premiere of A Year In The Life, Netflix organized pop-up Luke’s Diner coffee shops across the country. Scott himself made a few appearances, everyone got free coffee, and it was the best day of the year, probably. While we don’t know when Scotty P’s Big Mug Coffee will make its big debut, chances are, it’s going to be great. After all, Scott’s had 17 years of practice.
