Postum is made from wheat and wheat bran, among other ingredients. It is a Kraft brand, so any gluten will be clearly listed, but in this case the wheat is front and center.
Is Gevala really coffee? Wait, I'm thinking of Postum. That has grain, but I don't know what kind. I know I'm safe with my Community with Chicory.

Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla ground coffee isnt gluten free. The label just says "Natural and Artificial flavors" but I reacted to it several times. I couldnt figure out what was making me ill so I emailed and got a CYA explination that their flavored coffee can have gluten.
Can you post the reply, Please? I am not denying your illness, but often times, we react to different things. It does not always mean that a product or a drink contains gluten.
But it would make sense that there would be a CYA statement, when you buy a cup of coffee in a Donut Shop.
I would like to see their response.

Sorry this is only really applicable for UK readers but here goes and just for info really:
Have to say I have noticed less of a trend for reaction (and it is always so mild anyway with me) with my own coffee made in a cafetiere. I use Starbucks Verona blend from Asda with a little milk. I am more likely to get a reaction when buying a coffee out and particularly with ones with a higher milk content such as lattes and cappucinos (lactose issue rather than direct gluten issue?), being mindful not to add any 'sprinkles'. Haven't braved the flavoured coffees from such chains such as mochas - unsure as whether this may be a step too far with gluten in the flavouring. A dietician I saw earlier today recommended decaf for a few months (was diagnosed 6 weeks ago).
1. Tried two Costa Mochas over the last two days and did not get a reaction and felt fine (their 'Flat White' coffees have given me a mild lactose-like reaction). See here for details:
2. For the Cafe Nero chain see here for gluten details for their drinks (note: mocha here has wheat) unlike Costa: http://www.caffenero.../hotdrinks.aspx
