1. coffee
A drink made from the seeds, or beans, of the coffee plant. In its status as a popular, hot, caffeinated beverage, coffee is comparable to tea.

Treguard drinks coffee. Not in any Knightmare episode admittedly, but twice in the KM books. In The Sorcerer's Isle novella, while travelling through Dhofar in pursuit of the Holy Grail, Treguard and his companions have coffee. In The Quest For The Dragon's Egg, the awry magic of Vestella may transport her and the player back to Knightmare Castle, where they interrupt Treguard and Pickle during a coffee and sandwich break.

During his interview with Debbie Glover in 2002, David Learner revealed that a similar scene might occur out of character too. He related how, on a typical day during Knightmare filming, 'at some point you would get a cup of coffee and the rest of the actors would blearily come in.' Years earlier, when interviewed by Paul McIntosh for Issues 1-2 of The Eye Shield, he had shared his happy memory of a 'fire alarm at nine-thirty one morning when we'd just started recording. We all piled out on to the street ... I greeted [people at a bus stop] with an elvish "Greetings, stranger!" I can't imagine why they started to trickle away. I think Treguard was looking in a shoe shop at the time, pipe in one hand, cup of coffee in the other. Nothing odd about that either!'

Much as tea is worshipped within the three walls of #knightmare, coffee does have its fans too. Chatbot Caei responds favourably to being given coffee by visitors, but politely restricts herself to one at a time. Below are some of Knightmare Chat's coffee moments.
