* MyLittlePonyFreindshipIsMagic's ''Fanfic/TriptychContinuum'' features wake-up juice. Unusually, this beverage explicitly exists alongside tea and coffee; the particular source of wake-up juice is as-yet unrevealed.

* In the novella ''With Delicate Mad Hands'' by Creator/JamesTiptreeJr, having made a kind of controlled crash landing on the Pigworld (actually a brown dwarf star) she's been aiming for since childhood, Carol settles down to communicate with the residents (she can't leave her ship due to high levels of radiation) with a "breakfast bar and self-heating kaffy". This could be the real thing or a coffee substitute (since [[DividedStatesOfAmerica Earth's recovering]] from [[AfterTheEnd several apocalyptic wars]]).

* 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.

* In Creator/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.
** There is also "asar", which is given to sentries on outdoor duty to give them energy and some heat.

a mixture of bitter herbs steeped in water, sort of like tea - except tea exists in the setting as well, and sib is different (tea is a luxury good of limited availability, sib is included in mercenaries' rations).
** There is also "asar", which might be a candidate, but apart from that it is served hot, has stimulating and restorative properties attributed to it and that it is given to sentries on outdoor duty to give them energy and some heat.duty, nothing is known.

** A piece of ''Warhammer 40k'' fluff had the Imperial Guard drinking "Recycled caffeine" at an outpost before they were massacred by the Tyranids (again). Probably as much a lampshading of their status as professional cannon fodder and terrible equipment as an example of this trope. It isn't stated what it is, but given this is from the administration that gave you '[[SoylentGreen Soylens Viridians]]' it's probably better not to ask.

* For much of the 20th Century, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Postum Postum]] (one of those roasted grain beverages; and yes, that's "Post" as in "Post Cereal") was hugely popular among Mormons. It was also given to children considered too young for coffee.

* ''Literature/{{Safehold}}'': Later in the novels, cherrybean tea makes an appearance. Readers who are at all familiar with coffee need neither the InUniverse confirmation from Merlin nor the glossary entry to tell what this would have been called on Old Earth.

* 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.
