The Coffee Shower is one of the amenities in Cosmo's Quickstop. Like all amenities, it can be installed along the outer wall of the Quickstop's large, central room. In campaign mode, the Coffee Shower becomes available after the cut-scene where Dr. Quazar is introduced.
Using the Coffee Showers[edit | edit source]
The Coffee Shower is a low risk amenity that can generate a moderate amount of profit. To maintain its value, you must keep its filters clear of microbes by interacting with the central screen. The screen displays infestations of up to 4 different microbes, each with a corresponding button input. Holding an input and zapping it until the microbes are destroyed will raise the price of the shower until it is free of germs. Anytime the you are away from the machine, the microbes will steadily multiply, decreasing the price again. Customers who want to use the Coffee Showers will use it no matter how dirty it is, but they will only pay the price the screen displays when they activate it. As a result, customer's cannot lose patience for this amenity, but it will only make substantial profit if it is periodically maintained.
Coffee Shower Upgrades[edit | edit source]
Upgrades can be purchased with a Gold Star Sticker once the task has leveled up to an upgrade's corresponding number. Higher level upgrades often require a previous upgrade to be purchased as a prerequisite.
Microbe-management - Fine tuning the frequency of the zapper lets you destroy microbes faster!
Now With Electrolytes! - Dissolving minerals in the coffee makes it more conductive. Now you can zap microbes even faster!
An Honest, Quality Bean - No artificial preservatives here! Now you can charge more for your responsibly sourced bean water. However, it will degrade a bit faster.
Cream n’ Sugar - Installing flavor injection nozzles makes your coffee much tastier, thus more valuable. Unfortunately, the dairy-based additives will make it degrade faster.
Pep in Your Step - Increasing caffeine content will make customers walk faster. Their chemical addiction will also make them prioritize Coffee Showers before other tasks!
Coffee Shower Lore[edit | edit source]
With a smooth aroma and mild taste, these gourmet coffee showers feel just like wading into a scalding pool of lava on a crisp winter morning while watching a serene Neptunian sunset. Ground from the finest organic coffee spores in the Horsehead Nebula, nothing starts your day like a refreshing deluge of this triple brewed, mold-free bean water.
Customers who need a quick pick-me-up during their long space voyages will surely enjoy stepping beneath the nozzles of this fine machine to rejuvenate their dulled senses. With 4 independently operated spigots, a continuously heated coffee vat, and mold-targeting electrodes, this state of the art device will have your customers buzzed before they can say “this looks like a 2nd degree burn.”
Because of its superior quality and irresistible aroma, even microscopic mold spores and bacteria are attracted to this rich, full-bodied blend. The handy magnification screen displays the level of contamination in the machine’s coffee filters and will automatically lower the sale price based on quality readings. Germs can be easily targeted and eliminated by activating the electrodes situated in the coffee vat. It is recommended that the filters are checked and cleaned regularly to maintain the product’s renown quality.
