Get Ready for a Caffeinated Grogu

 by Beth Keating



March 1, 2023


Star Wars fans rejoiced on Wednesday with the first episode drop of the new season of The Mandalorian, but coffee drinkers at Disney were doubly blessed.  Joffrey’s, the official specialty coffee purveyor at Disney, released a brand new brew in honor of the March 1st occasion.  “STAR WARS The Mandalorian – Precious Cargo Blend” debuted, honoring the adorable Grogu, or Baby Yoda, whose smiling presence and upstretched arms grace the artwork on the package.

According to Joffrey’s, the new Precious Cargo Blend  “brings you the galaxy's finest quality medium-roasted Arabica beans and exclusive packaging inspired by Grogu. Part of the Star Wars Specialty Coffee Collection, you can now enjoy smooth small-batch roasted coffee with this cosmic brew.”


Grogu’s special blend is a medium roast with 100% Arabica Beans, sold in 11 oz. packages for $12.99 as either ground or whole bean coffee. You can pick it up at the Joffrey’s location at Disney Springs, or online at Joffreys.com, along with any of the other Disney collections.  And here’s a special tip: If you sign up for their newsletter online at Joffrey’s, you can get a 25% discount.


Joffrey’s currently offers 25 unique coffees for Disney, ranging from resort specific blends like the Riviera Resort blend, to theme park signature restaurant blends, such as Le Cellier’s dark blend from the Canada pavilion at EPCOT.  There are often limited time holiday blends as well, such as Mickey & Minnie’s Winter Wonderland, the Not-So-Scary Pumpkin Brew, or the current Mickey Mouse Cup O’ Gold for St. Patrick’s Day or the caramel-toned Disney Hoppity Ever After for Easter. And, if you hurry, you might catch the dark ground Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Blend ($14.99). The 50th anniversary celebration wraps up the end of this month.


The Mandalorian Season 3 is now airing on Disney+.
