* Eastern European countries still drink grain coffee. There was all sorts of mock-foreign products, including faux chocolate. One of the party leaders advocated abandoning lemons in favor of the Sauerkraut - which has roughly the same vitamin quotient. He changed his mind, when his wife prepared him some tea... with sauerkraut.

** Chicory caught on, after a fashion; it's still an ingredient, though now mixed with real coffee. Coffee-chicory blends are popular in Louisiana, and especially popular in UsefulNotes/NewOrleans.

** During the [[RedOctober Russian Civil War]], the exact same coffee substitutes were in use. There was even a brand of acorn coffee, "Zheludin" (lit. Acornine) that was marketed even after the hurdle was cleared, as a "healthy" coffee.
** Historically Russians are [[UsefulNotes/TeaAndTeaCulture much bigger on tea]], though (tea is right up there with [[VodkaDrunkenski vodka]] as far as how much Russians drink it). Reds ending up with all the stock from the pre-Revolutionary tea trade is often credited as one reasons for their victory, as they were able to introduce a strict dry law, giving out the tea in consolation, which lead to better morale and better health (as tea required boiling the water) in their troops.
** Due USA's economical block on Chile during Salvador Allende's presidential period, coffee became scant and very expensive, so an alternative made from barley was made, and even when coffee became cheap and easy to find again, the popularity of barley coffee substitute still prevails to date, specially among kids who can't drink caffeine.

* Having to rely on coffee substitutes (called ''[[CaptainErsatz Ersatzkaffee]]'' or ''[[InherentlyFunnyWords Muckefuck]]'') was also necessary in WestGermany during the post-[[WorldWarII war]] era, as well as in EastGermany during TheSeventies.

* Having to rely on coffee substitutes (called ''[[CaptainErsatz Ersatzkaffee]]'' or ''[[InherentlyFunnyWords Muckefuck]]'') was also necessary in WestGermany during the post-[[WorldWarII war]] era, as well as in EastGermany during TheSeventies. The "seventies coffee crisis" (which did affect the West, but mostly ended up producing higher prices rather than scarcity per se) resulted from a bad harvest in Brasil and the GDR's notorious lack of hard currency with which to buy coffee. First they tried substituting coffee with the aforementioned products and then they invested in Vietnam, which at that time had an infant coffee industry at best, causing it to take a path towards the second biggest coffee producer in the world today, mostly focused on mass producing cheap varieties. To this day Germany and Vietnam enjoy surprisingly strong relations and ties of all sorts for two countries so far apart without a history of colonialism or a shared language between them.

** Some fluff makes Recaf closer to being tea, such as in ''TabletopGame/OnlyWar'', which describes it as being made from crushed and brewed leaves. [[note]] The core rulebook spells it with only one F. [[/note]]

* The ''StarWars'' [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]] has "caf tea", or "coffeine" or "caffa" or just "caf", depending on the writer, since most of them don't like or haven't bothered looking up the words already coined. It's a big universe and these all might be distinct beverages or brands, but even so. And [[Literature/XWingSeries oratay]], which is apparently rare. Averted with the highly exotic drink ''hot chocolate''. One ''Jedi Apprentice'' book mentions "kopi tea", which is sorta funny when you know [[BilingualBonus "kopi" is Malay for "coffee"]].

* In the ''DocSidhe'' novels by Creator/AaronAllston, the fair world equivalent of coffee is a bitter chocolate based drink named ''xioc'' (or, with milk, "''xioc au lait''"...). It takes some getting used to for the characters originally from Earth.

** Lack of real coffee becomes a real difficulty in ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'' thanks to a vampire using it as his [[AddictionDisplacement substitute for blood]]. The squad makes some out of acorns for (which soldiers did often in RealLife, minus the the necessity for keeping vampires on the wagon).

* The Seanchan of ''TheWheelOfTime'' have a hot drink called kaf, which is quite likely coffee.
* The people in ''{{Dragonlance}}'' drink "tarbean tea". There is also a drink called "Kefre" which is probably even more coffee-like than tarbean tea.
