This is a plant I could learn to love.


Coffee Plants are plants introduced in the Shipwrecked DLC. They can be found only inside Volcano, but can be dug with a Shovel to be moved outside. They can be harvested to receive 1 Coffee Beans after which they will need 4 to 5 Days to regrow. Rain does not reduce this time.

Coffee Plants can only be planted on either Magma Turf which can be found outside the volcano or on Ashy Turf and Volcano Turf which have to be dug up inside the volcano using a Pitchfork and brought outside.

Coffee Plants will produce Coffee Beans for 3-5 harvests during Dry season (Summer if replanted in RoG), after which they will require additional Fertilizer. As the plant gets closer to this point, it will begin to show fewer and fewer fruit at the tips of its leaves. When it can no longer be harvested, it will again resemble a withered Coffee Plant.

Coffee plants only thrive in hot temperatures, and as a result will wither outside of Dry/Summer seasons. The plant is only protected from withering for 1 harvest after being fertilized, this means that picking coffee outside of warm seasons will only yield 1 harvest instead of 3-5 before requiring fertilizer again. If replanted in RoG then coffee beans will not grow at all during Winter.

Unlike other plants like berry bushes or grass tufts, players must fertilize Coffee Plants with Ashes if in its withered form. Once it has stopped bearing fruit it will need 4 to 5 Ashes to be fertilized again. Manure or Rot cannot be used to fertilize Coffee Plants.

Coffee Plants uprooted after they have been struck by Dragoon Eggs.

Coffee Plants are not flammable in that they cannot be set on Fire by the player or wildfires. When they are dug and held as an item in the player's inventory, they can however be used as fuel in Campfires, Chiminea and so on.

Coffee Plants are also safe from other destructive forces of nature like Lightning and when fertilized, and they can even withstand Dragoon Eggs which fall from the sky during a Volcano eruption. The impact of a Dragoon Egg will merely uproot the plant without lighting the plant on fire.

Prototype.png Tips

  • Players should make sure to fertilize withered Coffee Plants with Ashes before attempting to dig them up, else they will only receive two Twigs and lose the plant. 
  • Because Coffee Plants thrive in hot climates, players should primarily focus on harvesting them during the hot seasons to avoid requiring fertilizer after every pick.

Burnt Coffee Plant.
  • Even though the Coffee Plant cannot be burnt, there is still a burnt version of it in the game files.
  • The in-game plant resembles a red Agave, while its real-life counterpart is a tree.

  • Occasionally, when fertilizing a Coffee Plant with Ashes, the Plant will refuse to accept any more fertilizer, even though it is still withered. Logging out to the menu and back in to the game should fix this issue.
  • Sometimes a fertilized plant withers before completely running out of beans.
  • Wandering Gobblers can hide in Coffee Plants as if they were Berry Bushes.
