If you are uprooting dandelion bear in mind that the taproot can be ground up and used as a substitute for coffee.
Apparently it is quite bitter, but it's something to try.
I saw them do this in one of those shows that follows a group of people doing the 100 mile diet, which is where they try to only eat food that comes from within a 100 mile radius of where they live.
Coffee is almost always grown quite far from where it is drunk, since it requires quite a specific habitat and climate. So if you are going to follow a diet like that, you're not going to be able to drink coffee and still stick to the rules.
If you try dandelion root instead, you'll be able to gather your hot drink at any roadside.
Chicory is another option for a taproot that can stand in for coffee.
