Postum brand instant hot beverage is a caffeine-free coffee alternative. It is made from roasted wheat, bran and molasses. The production of Postum was discontinued in 2007 by a large food company. Since then, Eliza's Quest Foods, LLC has recreated and reintroduced Postum, and they are now non-genetically modified organism project certified. Postum Instant Beverage was introduced to American households by C. W. Post in 1895, and it has been a top-selling coffee substitute for over 100 years. Postum can be ordered directly from Eliza's Quest Foods online at Postum.com.

To make homemade Postum, mix 1 quart of fine ground wheat, 1 pint of coarsely ground corn meal and 1/2 cup molasses, or dark syrup. Rub the mixture together until it is blended thoroughly. Spread the mixture on baking sheets. Brown the mixture in a slow oven, stirring frequently, until it is dark brown. Cool the mixture, and store it in a sealed jar.
