The squad makes some out of acorns for (which soldiers did often in RealLife, minus the the necessity for keeping vampires on the wagon).

* ''Literature/TheRestaurantAtTheEndOfTheUniverse'' parodies this effect, but instead of coffee, it's the alcoholic drink "gin and tonic" that gets this treatment, showing up instead as "jynnan tonnyx", a [[ThatSoundsFamiliar suspiciously similar name]] which the Guide itself immediately lampshades. In light of this, one wonders whether Douglas Adams drank a lot while writing...

* The MMORPG ''TabulaRasa'' had Coffite, a brew produced by the Cormans and billed by the AFS Post Exchange as "something like coffee that's better than no coffee at all." The fall of Earth to the Bane forced surviving humans to find substitutes for most of their food and drink; most AFS soldiers (both roleplayers and [=NPCs=]) found it to be a poor substitute.

* During UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar, Lincoln cut off the South's access to coffee supplies. Desperate, the Confederacy tried to make substitutes of anything that they could get their hands on. This included faux-coffee made from chicory, roasted dandelion root, and toasted grain, best of all. Worst of all being ''acorns''.
