History and Ersatz®
“Coffee substitutes” have been used for centuries,
especially when coffee beans were scarce.
These substitutes have been made of
various roasted seeds, roots, or grains,
but often with little flavor.

have rediscovered and reformulated the perfect coffee alternative (that is, a warm beverage you choose to drink): Ersatz®!
The CoffeeTrade Company makes Ersatz®,
a caffeine-free and gluten-free coffee alternative
delicious “roasted-grain-and-roasted-nuts-with-chocolately-notes” flavor.
It is sold in large teabags, each one making a 12-ounce mug of Ersatz®. Purchase Ersatz
*(For people who love the taste of Ersatz, but need some caffeine, we also make a version of Ersatz that is blended with blacktea, which is caffeine-rich, called “Caffersatz®“!) About ‘Caffersatz’
