** 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 ElizabethMoon's ''Literature/TheDeedOfPaksenarrion'' series, the stimulant drink of choice is "sib". It's not clear whether it is more akin to coffee or tea.

* 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.

* ''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.
