Tracing its origins back to ancient Earth, coffee has traveled through time and space, evolving with each civilization it touched. In the Star Army setting, coffee is more than just a beverage; it's a tradition that has been carried across galaxies, a piece of Earth's heritage that found its way into the hearts of many species in the Kagami Galaxy. Each planet and culture within the Star Army universe has adapted and embraced coffee, adding unique twists to its preparation and consumption.

Starting in YE 29, the Star Army Field Rations, Type 29 contained instant coffee.

In YE 41, the Star Army of Yamatai added Instant Coffee, Type 41 to its Star Army Field Rations, Type 38.

In YE 45, the NMX started making the NMX Field Ration, Type 45, which contained a packet of instant coffee crystals called the NMX Instant Coffee Type 45.

The Poku Saeruo Degonjo have been brewing and drinking their own version of coffee, called Kadamui, since before their exodus from their original homeworld nearly eight centuries ago.
