David Lynch’s coffee obsession was on display for anyone who watched the Twin Peaks television series. It sometimes seemed like most of the characters in that tv show had a coffee fixation themselves. Mulholland Drive is another David Lynch production where people consumed coffee and the idea of coffee sometimes consumed the characters.
The fact is, David Lynch likes coffee. David Lynch likes coffee…a lot. In fact, the famed absurdist director loves coffee so much that’s he began marketing his own official brand here in the last few years.
The director found one particular coffee product he liked most of all (on blind taste tests). He contacted the manufacturers and, the next thing you knew, there was a David Lynch Signature Cup Coffee. As the director of Blue Velvet and other screen classics has said before, “I like cappuccino, actually. But even a bad cup of coffee is better than no coffee at all.”
Since the signature brand went on sell, David Lynch has gone to considerable lengths to promote his coffee, including directing his own product commercials (that are brilliantly disturbing). He’s appeared on tv shows promoting his coffee and even hijacked interviews for other projects by diverting talk to his signature product. With the film genius behind Eraserhead, this isn’t a mere marketing ploy. This is a lifelong fascination for brewed coffee beans, though.
Apparently, tons of coffee was a key to some of David Lynch’s early writing breakthroughs: “I’d have coffee, sometimes six cups, along with the shake, and I’d have sugar in my coffee. By then I would be pretty jazzed up, and I’d start writing down ideas.”
Odd David Lynch Commercial
I defy anyone to find an odder commercial than this David Lynch coffee commercial, whose director and actor is David Lynch himself. First of all, this is 4-minute commercial. Second, David Lynch is cupping a Barbie doll head in his hands, talking to the doll like he’s in love with her as creepy music plays in the background. Lynch keeps telling Barbie he’s going to get her a cup of coffee: “Let’s go get that cup of coffee, baby.”
On the positive side, it is organic coffee.
This isn’t the first coffee commercial David Lynch has directed. The oddball director, known for his coffee obsession, once directed this Japanese coffee commercial by David Lynch. You might be disappointed, though–one person described it as the least surreal thing on Japanese television (they were right).
David Lynch at Book Soup
You can tell David Lynch has a real obsession for brewed coffee beans. Here’s a clip from of David Lynch’s Book Soup visit in which he talks about his signature coffee cup. Book Soup is a book store on Sunset Boulevard which touts itself as “The Bookseller to the Great & Infamous”.
David Lynch Says Water Is Good
The coffee tangent has taken David Lynch to new beverage avenues. In one interview, he discussed how New York City has good water for coffee brewing, then diverted the conversation to the subject of water itself. Making a point about all human life–nay, virtually all known life itself–David Lynch went on to say, “We’ve got to drink something. Do you just drink water, sometimes? It’s very good for you.”
That’s profound stuff and people would be wise to listen.

Now I’ve had a cup of coffee from this seller and, while it’s good, I didn’t find it an earth-shattering experience. But then, I don’t love cappuccino the way David Lynch does.
If that’s not enough, I’ll leave you with one more David Lynch quote about cups of coffee: “If you turn away from them for one second, they go cold on you.”
