  • Plant Speech. trees
  • Plant Form. Small coffee tree
  • Verdant Burst. When the Coffee leshy dies, a burst of primal energy explodes from their body, restoring 18 (4d8) hit points to each plant creature in a 30-foot radius. This area immediately fills with coffee trees, becoming difficult terrain. If the terrain is not viable for coffee, they wither after 24 hours.


  • Multiattack. The Coffee leshy makes two attacks as an action using its machete attack.
  • Machete. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d6+6) slashing damage. On a hit, the target is grappled (escape DC 13).
  • Blow Dart. Ranged Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, range 30/120 ft., one target. Hit: 11 (2d4+6) piercing damage. On a hit, the target must make a DC 14 Constitution saving throw or suffer 10 (4d4) poison damage and gain the benefits of the Haste spell until the end of their next turn. At the beginning of their following turn, however, the target is stunned for 1 round unless they have been attacked again by the Coffee leshy’s Blow Dart and suffered the effects of its poison.


Adorned in fragrant white flowers, the coffee plant is a small tree nearly ten feet high. Its small stature and inviting flowers mask a secret danger, as its bright red “cherries” contain a high concentration of a bitter toxin, evolved to stop animals from grazing on the plant. Unfortunately for coffee, humans absolutely love this toxin, and caffeine has become a staple in many people’s diets. The beans (actually seeds) within the coffee cherries (actually berries) are one of the most traded crops in the world, as coffee fuels a large portion of the world’s economy and sleep-deprived parents. To be honest, this book was written in large part thanks to coffee.
