I've just found out Coffee Calamity Round Two  only has 2 entries so far!

Coffee Calamity Round Two  (E)
Another coffee calamity! How much more can we take?
#2247482 by Tina Stone

The prompt for this round is a perfect chance to practice your world building. 500 words is both less and more than you think and you've got up to 1500 to work with.

So stretch your fingers and your imagination. What would happen to a world where coffee has been banned?

To help you along, I recommend the YouTube video Food Theory: Coffee, Science's MOST IMPORTANT Discovery!  

And when you've submitted your entry, take the forum post number and leave a {post:#xxxxxxxx} link back to that entry post in World Weavers' Network  ! You'll get up to 750gp and I'll send you a review on your world weaving.
