Armed with a controller and an espresso machine, the Loading Games Bar says its brew is “is at its best as an espresso, or with a splash of cold milk,” on a Firebox.com product listing.
Nine different kinds of beans make up the ethically-sourced contents of 9-Bit Mega Coffee. The premium java contains beans from Brazil, Columbia, Honduras, Ethiopia, El Salvador, India and Sumatra.
RetroToGo.com notes that the package design is one of the product’s most distinguished gaming qualities. It comes clad in a classic Mega-Drive inspire label, paying homage to Sega’s early 1990’s home console.
Nine pence from each sale of 9-Bit Mega Coffee goes to SpecialEffect, a charity that is dedicated to helping people with disabilities enjoy computer games.
For £14.99, “geeks, gamers, techie types and nostalgia junkies” get 250 grams worth of coffee, which roughly equates to around 30 servings.
