Coffee is a dark brown drink brewed using boiling water on crushed and roasted coffee beans.1 The beans tend to grow only in hotter climates but are traded around Golarion and cost 5 copper pieces for a pound of whole beans or 8 coppers for a pound of ground beans. The drink is mildly stimulating.2 Coffee is a common drink in the morning or afternoon, and is often drunk with additives like lavender and rose water.3

In Katapesh, coffee is consumed as a precursor to business meetings, upon the arrival of guests, and after large meals.4
