Doc said no coffee. Caffeinated or otherwise. She suggested I check the coffee section for non-coffee hot drinks. So I picked up Pero. It's instant, it's made from barley and chicory, and it tastes coffeeish. No caffeine of course. I'd say it's a decent substitute for coffee flavor. Though I could maybe use the caffeine as I set off to drive in the dark. Dang, I hate getting up before the sun.
