Caffeine is a type of medicine that you can buy or make in Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town.

You can actually purchase Caffeine and other medicines from Elly’s front desk at Mineral Clinic for 1,000 G. But if you’d rather make it on your own, we’ll cover everything you need in this guide.

Where To Learn the Recipe

Cooking inspiration is something that happens automatically as you make dishes with different ingredients. Once you’ve cooked with an ingredient a certain number of times, you can unlock a new recipe that uses the same item.

Equipment Needed

The equipment needed to make Caffeine can be bought from Jeff at the General Store.

The downside is that Jeff sells his kitchen equipment one by one, in 10-day intervals after you buy the first of Gotts’ house remodeling upgrades.

This means that you can only access the next piece of equipment 10 days after the previous one becomes available for purchase.

Equipment Availability Cost
Cooking Pot 10 days after the Seasoning Set becomes available for purchase


10 days after upgrading to the Medium House

1,000 G

Ingredients Needed

The ingredients you need to make Caffeine are forageables or wild items that you can pick up around Mineral Town in certain seasons.

Orange Grass and White Grass are items that are only available around town in the Spring and Winter respectively, and the True Magic Red Flower is a random spawn from Magic Red Flower seeds in Autumn.

It’s a good idea to keep these three ingredients on hand just in case you need to make Caffeine throughout the year.

Ingredients Where to Get
Honey Harvest from the fruit trees on your farm in any season
Orange Grass Forage Orange Grass on the Beach during Spring
White Grass Forage White Grass from Carter’s secret room or the South Forest in the Winter
True Magic Red Flower Harvest from Magic Red Flower seeds after 10 days of growth in Autumn

Magic Red Flower seeds can be bought from Huang’s shop for 600 G

How To Sell Caffeine

Any dishes made in your kitchen can’t be shipped through Zack and the Shipping Bin. However, you can start selling food to Huang once you become friends with him at 4 friendship notes.

To sell a dish to Huang, stand in front of his counter while holding the item. Don’t interact directly with his sprite, as it will register as a gift instead.

Huang will then offer you a price, which you can actually reject for a chance at getting him to bid higher.

The price range for Caffeine is anywhere between 480 G and 570 G.

If Huang offers you 560 G for the item, for example, you can turn him down and try again to get a higher price.

Keep in mind that his bids will never go lower or higher than this defined range, so 570 G is the maximum price you can get for selling Caffeine.
