Klingon Coffee

Klingons may be "foul-smelling barbarians," but they sure know how to make coffee. The Klingon coffee known as raktajino became a staple on the Enterprise during the time of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager. Captain Sisko was particularly addicted to the highly-caffeinated drink.

John DiMarco made a supercut of Starfleet personnel ordering or discussing raktajino over the course of several seasons. I particularly enjoyed the sequence that involved time travel, as Odo and his DS9 companions encounter Klingons they do not recognize because they are made up in the low-budget Star Trek: The Original Series fashion. That's the kind of touch that makes us love Star Trek so much. (via Geeks Are Sexy
