Any good Coffee themed board games?

I'm a huge coffee fan/nerd/snob etc. I know of VivaJava but are there any other good games with coffee themes?

I enjoy the smell of coffee but can’t drink the stuff.

There is Coffee Roaster, but there is another game that i heard about from Essen. It is called Coffee Traders, it is not on BGG yet but it will be heavier that Coffee Roaster and multiplayer.

Locally in California my favorite shop is Augies coffee, they typically rank in a lot of the national roasting competitions. I am spoiled for sure. 

In Washington (I travel there often) my favorite shop is Slate. Soooo good.

Nice! I haven't had much from true west coast roasteries. The furthest is some Kansas places. I was in New Orleans this past year and while many wanted to go to Burbon street, I coffee shop hopped and tried some of the local roasts. Not disappointed at all in my life choices lol

There’s a shop here called Sidamos that roasts their own Ethiopian coffee and its amazing! The other one is Ceremony Roasters... really good coffee.

I had a bag of Ceremony a bit ago! I use Mistobox and they send coffee from all over, and that was sent! It was a nice bean.

Yes its good.. I rarely drink coffee black but Ceremony coffee I can. 

Maybe we need to find a discussion board about coffee lol

Thanks for saying that. I was sure I had heard something about that, but when I couldn't find it I decided I must be misremembering.

I heard about it too from Heavy Cardboard but hadn’t been  able to look up info on it yet.

I heard it from them too lol. There is literally nothing on BGG about the game though!

So strange

I haven't played it but I hear good things about Coffee Roaster. I understand Stronghold Games either has recently brought it to the US market, or that it will be soon available.
