Even better than coffee substitute Neelix invention

"Even better than coffee substitute", a Neelix invention

The even better than coffee substitute was the informal name Captain Kathryn Janeway gave to a beverage created by Neelix in 2371 to replace Earth coffee. It was made from a proteinaceous Delta Quadrant seed, was a richer blend than standard coffee, and was quite viscous.

Captain Janeway, a borderline coffee addict, was skeptical about the substance, and initially wanted to spend replicator rations on real coffee. However, Neelix convinced her that she ought to set a good example for the crew regarding the adoption of alternative food sources that didn't deplete USS Voyager's already strained power reserves. (VOY: "The Cloud")

The drink appeared to have a noticeably higher viscosity than would be expected of coffee.
