Yes, it's true, David Lynch, director of such perverse favorites as Eraserhead, Elephant Man, Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Straight Story, Mulholland Drive, and INLAND EMPIRE, is shilling organic coffees. David Lynch Signature Cup consists of one espresso, one house roast and one decaf house roast, each available in full bean or ground.
Coffee may not seem a huge stretch for the director/writer/producer, given his Twin Peak characters' frequent references to 'a damn fine cup of coffee'.
Twin Peaks, Episode #1.2, 1990
FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper: [to the waitress who has just poured him a cup of coffee] Wait a minute, wait a minute.
[he savors his first sip]
FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper: You know, this is - excuse me - a damn fine cup of coffee. I've had I can't tell you how many cups of coffee in my life and this, this is one of the best.
