Top 6 TV Characters Who Are Addicted To Coffee

Ever wondered who the biggest coffee addicts on TV are? We've got a list! 

Stephen Colbert - The Colbert Report

The titular host of The Colbert Report once famously said that he was so addicted to coffee that he had installed a tiny coffee franchise underneath his desk, complete with his own personal barista. 

Stephen Colbert’s Best Coffee Quote: “I believe the president’s salute was a latté disrespect. It was un-Americano. This is a mocha-ry of our military that should have us flying our flags at half-caf. No Sanka you, sir, not in my Maxwell House. It makes me unfrappy to see. We gotta put that dopio on an espresso train to cappu-China before it’s too café au late. Thank you for letting me venti my anger.


Agent Dale Cooper - Twin Peaks

Here at Finest of Coffee, we like to think that Agent Dale Cooper would think we brew a damn fine cup of coffee. The star of Twin Peaks knew two things - how to solve a murder, and how to pair the perfect brew. 

We wonder if he’d like our Costa Rica blend? Might go pretty well with some cherry pie. 

Agent Dale Cooper’s Best Coffee Quote: “Damn fine coffee.”

Leroy Jethro Gibbs - NCIS

Agent Gibbs had a lot of rules, and one of those rules was that you don't mess with a Marine's coffee. The coffee provided by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service just didn’t cut it to feed his addiction - that’s why we think he’d be a big fan. Only the Finest of Coffee for Gibbs! 

Gibbs’ Best Coffee Quote: Rule #23: Never mess with a Marine's coffee if you want to live.


Dr. Kelso - Scrubs


Dr. Kelso’s love of coffee knows no bounds. This grumpy old medical doctor loves a good brew so much he opened his own coffee shop in the hospital. That’s dedication! 

Dr. Kelso’s Best Coffee Quote: 

Vendor: Hey, Bob, how are ya?

Dr. Kelso: Fine, Allen. Uh, today, I think I'll try a double half-caf mocha foam latte mochaccino with a shot of vanilla and a sprinkle of nutmeg.

Vendor: So, black coffee?

Dr. Kelso: Bingo-bango!

Carla: Oh, my God - these people actually like you!

Dr. Kelso: Maybe you should just order.

Carla: Yes, I'll have an espresso, please; and...what kind of scones do you have today?

Man: Son of a bitch. Do you mind, lady? I am in a rush.

Carla: Oh, my goodness! I'm so sorry. What am I doing thinking I can take an extra six seconds to pick my breakfast? I'm gonna have to call my mom and tell her she did a lousy job raising me. Thank you, so much.

Dr. Kelso: I, uh, I think what she means is, she doesn't give a crappuccino!


Penny - The Big Bang Theory

It’s no secret that Penny runs on coffee! In fact, we’ve often wondered who would win in a contest...Penny’s love Leonard, or her coffee machine. For a woman who once commented that she was out of coffee and needed coffee while pouring a cup of coffee, only the best will do. 


Penny’s Best Coffee Quote: "Out of coffee, need coffee." 


Lorelai Gilmore - The Gilmore Girls

This witty TV mom has always had an edge -thanks to coffee. Lorelai has navigated the waters of singleness and motherhood with more coffee than blood in her veins, and we think it’s served her pretty well - don’t you? 


Lorelai’s Best Coffee Quote: "I stop drinking coffee, I stop doing the standing and walking and the words-putting-into-sentence doing."
