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, though it also published content such as short fiction, social commentary, political rants, one-act plays, erotica, and adult-oriented comic strips. The magazine was started in San Jose, California by poet and cartoonist Brian Fugett, who later moved to and published out of Kettering, Ohio. At one time, co-editors included Karl Koweski, Aleathia Drehmer, and C. Allen Rearick.
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.
