It's not coffee, it's a substitute?

I did some research, and must apologize, it has been discontinued.
$50-$80 on Ebay, that is an addiction.
What's the other "coffee replacement" drink out there?
I have a small carton of Caro in my cupboard and my mother drinks Barleycup. I think there is another called Bambu (couldn't get the link to work on my computer so don't know if these maybe mentioned on there apologies if they are) Get mine from a national chain of health food shops. They seem to be the hot drinks of choice for LDS over here.

That would be a good guide for the WoW question
...you might consider whether it looks like you are drinking coffee...milk at dinner parties?
Though that is a different issue, the appearance of sin.
Would others think badly of you if they saw you drinking it? Not if they have the spirit of charity and give you the benefit of the doubt.

Not to start a debate or anything, but I do have a question for church members out there. I used to drink coffee before joining the church because I loved the taste of it. Up until now, I didn't know that there was such a thing as a "coffee substitute," which literally contains no coffee and no caffeine. If I drank this, I don't believe I'd be breaking the Word of Wisdom, as I've said before, no coffee beans -- think rye, barley, and chicory! But what do you think?
And please refrain from responses such as, "Well, if you're questioning whether or not it'd be breaking the Word of Wisdom, then you probably have your answer," because it's not really that sort of question. I want to know if members would somehow be offended if I drank something that contains the word "coffee," in it ... I know people who get offended because converts drink NON-ALCOHOLIC "beer" because they like the taste, when there isn't any alcohol in it and the only real offense is that the word "beer" is stamped on the label.

One of the brands I saw at Broulims today was called "Pero." The website states this about their product:
"Looking for a natural alternative to caffeinated coffee or tea?
Your search is over. PERO is a 100% natural beverage with a coffee-like taste. It’s 100% naturally caffeine free and blended from select all natural ingredients --- malted barley, barley, chicory and rye. And because PERO contains no stimulants it will not elevate heart rate or blood pressure, cause sleeplessness or create any adverse physical ailments typically associated with caffeine consumption. Plus, the low acidity of this natural beverage makes it easy to enjoy morning, noon or night without fear of stomach upset.
PERO can be mixed with your favorite ingredients to create your own hot drink specialties to relax and enjoy.
So, take a break -- and make PERO the beverage of choice for you and your family."
dunno. seems ok.
