When you're knee-deep in peaches this summer and you've got their sticky juice running down to your elbows, make this recipe. It actually doesn't call for the sweet, fleshy fruit at all — it calls for the pits, those nubby, hard-as-rock things that usually get thrown into the trash or compost pile. They might not look like much, but they hold a whole lot of flavor inside. Here, when steeped in almond milk, they transform a seemingly simple-looking glass of the non-dairy stuff into one with serious character: It's deeper in almond flavor and just ever-so-slightly reminiscent of peaches. Drink it straight; pour it over granola, museli, and oatmeal; or use it to make a peach smoothie even peachier.

This New Coffee Line Will Be Your Girlmore Girls Dream Come True — Pop Culture

The trademark speed at which Rory and Lorelai speak in the Gilmore Girls franchise can be attributed to a globally loved bean juice (more commonly known as coffee). The two characters are seen frequenting Luke's Diner for their regular cup of java throughout the series, which was on air from 2000 to 2007 and later revived for a season by Netflix last November.

While both the town of Stars Hollow and the character Luke Danes are fictional elements of the show, actor Scott Patterson — who plays Danes on the series — is turning art into reality by launching his own line of coffee, reports Hello Giggles. Prepare to freak out a little bit.
