Coffee Gravy?

Has anybody besides me encountered this? It's a very thin gravy made with the drippings from smoked link sausage, very little flour,  black coffee, water, & liberal salt & black pepper.  It's very thin, and will "sog up" the most absorbent biscuit for easy chewing or feeding to the baby. My grandmother raised us on the stuff, along with her "cathead" biscuits, but the meat was usually reserved for Grandpa when he came in from plowing, planting, and harvesting. I think it was the Depression Era way of "stretching" the meat flavor to feed a crew of ravening kids. I raised both of mine on it well after the Depression Era, and at the age of 55 am sitting here enjoying a bowl of buscuits and coffee gravy as I type!
