Animal Crossing Wiki

Coffee is a feature in Wild World and subsequent games. It is available from The Roost in Wild World and City Folk, the Cafe in New Leaf and New Horizons. It is also available as a held item in New Leaf after three coffees have been ordered.

Coffee can be purchased from Brewster once per day. The player will respond to the particular taste and flavoring of the coffee after drinking it.

When a player becomes a regular visitor, Brewster will offer "pigeon milk" which lightens the color of the coffee. Coffee can be bought in other towns from City Folk onwards, whereas this option is not available in Wild World.


In New Leaf, the coffee item can be held like a tool. The player sips from the coffee after pressing A, finishing the drink after five sips. Strangely, due to the fact that the coffee item is technically a tool in this game, it cannot be carried indoors, including The Roost.

In all games coffee has appeared in, it is shown that villagers and some other characters also drink coffee. In New Leaf, several different villagers from the town and other towns that the player has visited may stop by the Cafe to buy coffee, as will other characters such as Tom Nook, Tortimer, and Pelly.

Each character has their own coffee preferences. This information is important when a daily job opens up after six coffees allowing the player to serve coffee to visiting characters.

Coffee Ingredients[]

When serving coffee, coffee beans, the amounts of milk, and sugar spoonfuls can be selected. Some characters specifically request a certain coffee selection and a certain amount of milk and sugar for their coffee. The following info is correct as of New Leaf (and perhaps also New Horizons?).

  • None
  • A little bit
  • Regular
  • Lots

Sugar Spoons[]

  • None
  • One spoon
  • Two spoons
  • Three spoons

Selective Coffee (Beans)[]

  • Blend
  • Blue Mountain
  • Kilimanjaro
  • Mocha


Brewster makes what the totally un-chic call "coffee." Trendy folks call it by its real name...le Go Juice.

  • 'Pigeon milk', or 'crop milk' is a substance that is produced by all pigeons and doves, as well as some flamingos. Crop milk is produced in the 'crop', which is where birds store food temporarily; it is almost nothing like mammalian milk.
    • As pigeon milk is fed to young pigeons, it's likely this signifies that Brewster has parental feelings toward the player.
  • In City Folk and New Leaf, on Valentine's Day, coffee changes into hot chocolate, and Brewster is a little more open to the player.
  • In a conversation with a sisterly villager, they may ask Brewster during the winter, "Hey, Brewster, that winter blend you were working on... What did you end up naming it?" Brewster will either respond with "...Winter Coffee.", "...Winter Storm.", or remain silent with "..." a similar event happens in the summer where the sisterly villager asks the same thing and Brewster will either respond with "...Summer Coffee", "...Summer Storm" or stay silent with "..."
  • In a conversation with a snooty villager, they occasionally mock Brewster by saying the Roost should serve breakfast or sweet snacks, which Brewster responds with "But... I only know how to make coffee..."
