This article deals with the consumption of cocoa, coffee, tea and chocolate in the territory of interwar Czechoslovakia and focuses mainly on the Czech lands. The study is based mainly on contemporary statistical sources, publications and the daily press. It focuses on the overall consumption of these commodities with respect to working class families and black coat families. It comes to the conclusion that the level of coffee consumption of working class families was approximately half that of black coat families. However, working class families consumed cups of coffee than the black coat families, and their rye coffee consumption, along with the consumption of chicory, was several times higher. Tea consumption was considered a luxury, and tea was not too popular with the public at this time. Cocoa was intended mainly for cooking and baking. Chocolate was consumed by rather wealthier segments of the population. A wide range of replacements for these materials was created for the poor.
