Laughing Squid draws our attention to a new caffeinated brew set to get last night's meal moving faster than a Landspeeder. Created by the minds at Think Geek, it's called the Star Wars Darth Vader's Dark Side Roast. Here's how they describe the far, far away coffee: "Get a taste of the Dark Side with this rich hand roasted coffee. Three diverse coffees and two different roasts create a full-bodied, sharp, cup with spicy undertones and smoky, dark-roasted complexity. Vader's Dark Roast Coffee is commonly enjoyed by Dark Lords of the Sith while planning new Death Star construction, but give into your anger, sample a steaming cup and you will be rewarded with power beyond your imagination."
Before you intellectual property rights types get in a huff, the product is an officially licensed Star Wars product. (The perfect accompaniment for your Empire Stikes Back Princess Leia morning play hour!) The blend is a mix of coffees from Africa and Indonesia. (Although the coffee isn't certified fair trade, "they are specialty-grade coffees which means that droid farmers receive a higher price/pound, compared to exchange-grade coffees." And it's available for $9.99/lb.
