We used to "dip" with the instant coffee from the MRE's waaayyy back
when I was a Lt...if you had been up and about with little to no sleep
for 3 or 4 days in the field as was often the case, it was often the
cure.  If we had time we made "bonus drink" - no idea why we called it

packets you had in your pack/pockets.  Mix, heat and levitate.
Long past those days...thank goodness!

interesting, you should read "Uncommon Grounds : The History of Coffee and
How it Transformed Our World". It drags at times but overall is very
interesting. Wartime coffee is mentioned more than once.
