Coffee Cart Ban is the tenth episode in Season 4 and the 62nd overall episode in the Nickelodeon TV series, Zoey 101. The episode aired on April 6, 2008.


After an accident involving coffee carts and his wife, Dean Rivers bans all coffee carts at PCA and makes a rule that no coffee is allowed on campus. Logan and Michael start selling coffees in their room, but overcharges his customers, selling large coffees at $9 per cup, and $1 more for sugar. When the girls find out, they decide to open another coffee sale in their room, but they charge less than half of what Michael and Logan charge, at $4 per large cup. Logan finds out, and he decides to tell Dean Rivers about them selling coffee in their room. So the girls try to sabotage the boys coffee shop with a laser to shoot all of the plastic cups. Unfortunately, both they and the boys get caught, and are brought to Dean Rivers's office, who tries to expel them for illegally selling coffee, but when one of the lasers reveals that Dean Rivers has been secretly drinking coffee, too, the coffee cart ban is ultimately lifted.
