  • Equipment

    • Espresso Machine
      Espresso Machine (100 Java Bucks, sells for 100)
      Doesn't cost much, but opens up a world of drinks. You need this item to make ANY Espresso drinks, even if you have other machines.
    • Copper Basket
      Copper Basket (125 Java Bucks, sells for 125)
      If you have a basket, some of your more generous customers might be tempted to leave you a little gift, like free ingredients.
    • Umbrella
      Umbrella (150 Java Bucks, sells for 150)
      Give your customers some shade, and you may attract some new faces.
    • Hermit Crab
      Hermit Crab (1000 Java Bucks, sells for 1000)
      What coffee shop would be complete without a hermit crab? Well, maybe you'll do fine without one, but still nice to have!

  • Begin your Latte Land journey by checking out the Game Help and Rules forum. There are only a few short posts so make sure you read them!
  • Each location (ie: Macchiato Heights, aka MH) has a recommendation for skills. You will find these listed on the map when you click on a zone. Because you are starting out there are no recommendations for MH.
  • You may be anxious to get the Macchiato Heights Neighborhood Gossip to keep it to herself but beware. There is an award you may want to get before you do! But if you give her the Lockjaw before you serve her 100 times, don't worry,  you can see her again at the end of the game.
  • As you move further along in the game beware of the Yoga Instructor. If you serve her the wrong drink you just might get a hex put on you! It can be removed though if you know how!
  • When you move to the next level your recipes and ingredients will travel with you but you will need to buy all new equipment so make sure you have enough money when you move. If you get stuck you can travel back to Macchiato Heights for free (your equipment will still be there).
  • If you are wondering how to use Stardust you can read the CafeMom Team's post right here.
  • When you begin playing in Latte Land you start with a few energy packs. Other ways to get energy packs are to watch the Chit Chat forum when other players are selling/trading and once you reach level 30 you will get one with every award you earn.
