Zygote in My Coffee (often referred to simply as "Zygote") was a popular underground independent print and online magazine that ran from December 31, 2003 until May 30, 2010, which dealt mostly in experimental and "street" poetry,[1] though it also published content such as short fiction, social commentary, political rants, one-act plays, erotica, and adult-oriented comic strips.[2] The magazine was started in San Jose, California by poet and cartoonist Brian Fugett, who later moved to and published out of Kettering, Ohio.[3] At one time, co-editors included Karl Koweski, Aleathia Drehmer, and C. Allen Rearick.[4]

Zygote in My Coffee released well over a hundred online issues and six print issues. After five years the magazine announced its defunct status in late 2008 but later resumed publication with a slightly limited schedule.[5]
