      Another law - the Adulteration Of Coffee Act 1718 - made it illegal to debase coffee for profit. Among the substances used by unscrupulous traders to pad out the sacks of coffee was ground-up sheep dung. As coffee went out of fashion, a similar law was introduced covering tea - the Adulteration of Tea Act 1776.
      Might go someway to explain the taste of supermarket coffee.



      ...and yet another reason to roast your own coffee... sheep raisins would be fairly obvious in green beans.

          Ye olde Irish baristas must have tried to pull the wool over their customers eyes with that number.

              Once again, if the coffee tastes like crap --- you no longer have to wonder why.
