Do you miss drinking Postum™?
For a time, one of the world's most famous and favorite coffee substitutes was no longer being produced.
We recommend Ersatz as a new and unique, gluten-free alternative.
Congratulations! We just learned that Postum was purchased by a small company and is in production again. Visit their website: postum.com
For centuries, "coffee substitutes" have been concocted, especially when stressful economic conditions and/or wars hindered the international shipping of coffee beans. Typically such substitutes have been developed using a variety of roasted agricultural products such as legumes, grain, and natural plant flavorings, often yielding a beverage with little or unappealing flavor.
Today, our food alchemists at The CoffeeTrade Company (our charmingly anachronistic enterprise) in Bellefonte, PA, have formulated a perfect coffee alternative through careful and tedious experimentation. The result? A satisfying warm beverage with a rich and delicious roasted grain and nutty flavor.
