Espresso Fiesta is a premium super-rare plant trick card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the PvZH Mega-Grow IconMega-Grow class. It costs 8SunPvZH to play, and its ability makes a selected plant do 3 bonus attacks.


It is based on the plant in Plants vs. Zombies with a similar appearance.

Its name is a portmanteau of "espresso", a type of coffee made by forcing steam or boiling water through ground coffee, referring to its appearance, and "expresso fiesta", which is "party express" in Spanish, referring to the hats on two of the coffee beans.

Its description is a reference to the consequence of drinking too much coffee, due to the effects of caffeine that can be found in it.


  • Class: Mega-Grow
  • Tribe: Bean Trick
  • Ability: A Plant does three Bonus Attacks.
  • Set - Rarity: Premium - Super-Rare

Card description

Don't consume after 5 p.m. You'll be up all night.



Espresso Fiesta is a strong last resort when the player can't do anything but attack the opposing hero to try and finish them off as quickly as possible. Its hefty cost of 8SunPvZH can be hard to stall for if the player is against an aggro deck. Chompzilla can make this easier because she can use sun-generating plants to quickly build up sun or healing tricks such as 2nd-Best Taco of All Time to sustain herself until she can play it. Captain Combustible is also useful to use as he can raise his plants' strength a lot and use Espresso Fiesta to do a ton of damage to zombies as well as the zombie hero for a huge finish. Since it is a bean card, Green Shadow could also use Espresso Fiesta to activate Admiral Navy Bean or Bean Counter's ability.

Combining it with a powerful plant like Super-Phat Beets, Winter Melon, and Smashing Pumpkin will completely obliterate zombies and will heavily damage the opposing hero. Using this with a PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye plant can heavily damage the zombie hero without filling up the Super-Block Meter.

Combining this with a boosted Re-Peat Moss can bring complete devastation due to the fact Re-Peat Moss will do 4 bonus attacks instead of 3. Using this when Party Thyme is on the field is also a great idea since the player will earn 3 cards by using it. Bananasaurus Rex can get a massive +3StrengthPvZH/+3HeartPvZH if it is in play when this combo is used.

Combined with plants that have the Splash Damage trait, this combo can potentially be very powerful for clearing the field. This is most notable with Threepeater, as it can attack 3 lanes at once. In conjunction with other strength-boosting abilities and tricks, the damage from Threepeater can not only clear the field but do considerable damage to your opponent as well.

Using this on Captain Cucumber will allow a maximum of three legendary cards to be conjured. In a similar fashion to Threepeater, using this on Shooting Starfruit will allow heavy damage to be done on all five lanes, especially if Shooting Starfruit's strength has been boosted. Using this in conjunction with Mars Flytrap will also allow three super-block segments to be stolen, while using this in conjunction with Venus Flytrap will heal you for at least 6 health. Using this on Mayflower is also a very good idea, as it can potentially give you three free cards which can even be more Espresso Fiestas providing it hit the zombie hero. It will also be a tremendous boost of cards if Party Thyme is on the lawn as the player can earn a maximum amount of 6 cards at the cost of 8 sun. Having Re-Peat Moss will allow 7 cards to be obtained, the highest number possible. Doing this with Bananasaurus Rex can give it a massive +7StrengthPvZH/+7HeartPvZH. Keep in mind, however, that only Green Shadow can usually perform this combo.

However, using this on the zombie hero may likely lead to a super block. This is because the 1.8.23 update, it made blocks more common with the reduced amount of segments from 10 to 8 in the Super-Block Meter. In this case, either wait until the zombie hero has blocked or use it on a plant with PvZH Truestrike IconBullseye trait. Also, do not use Espresso Fiesta on a plant if there is a gravestone in the same lane, otherwise, the gravestone will negate all the damage, ultimately making it useless. In such case, Grass Knuckles can use Grave Buster on the gravestone before using Espresso Fiesta although this can only be done on turn 10 if the player wishes to do so in 1 turn. Also, always watch out for Bonus Track Bucketheads before playing this card, or else you will waste a powerful card and possibly an entire turn if you play Espresso Fiesta when one of them is present.


Provided that the opponent is using this as a last resort, the best counter to this is to put a gravestone or a shielded zombie in front of a strong plant to absorb all the bonus attacks without being damaged itself. Otherwise, just put a weak zombie in front of it to absorb at least one of the attacks. However, this does not stop it from Strikethrough plants.

You could also use Ra Zombie if you are using a PvZH Hearty IconHearty hero to be able to avoid the Espresso Fiesta in turn 8 or 9, although it can be expensive to play Ra Zombie. You can also use Defensive End to force it to be played 2 turns later than usual, allowing you more time to set up in case they have the card. Alternatively, you can use Undying Pharaoh so you do not get defeated. Otherwise, hope that the Super-Block Meter can block damage for you.

The best counter is Bonus Track Buckethead, as it will nullify the bonus attacks, rendering the trick useless.

Having a Gargantuar Mime on the field can dissuade your opponent from playing this card if their health is low enough, as Gargantuar Mime will copy the plant's bonus attacks unless it is destroyed by one.
