This Frozen Coffee Is as Quick as Instant Coffee (But It Actually Tastes Good)
For someone who lives and breathes food and beverage, I am certifiably not a coffee snob. I own zero coffee equipment, have no caffeine routine, and have never made coffee at home. It’s not that I don’t like stuff, I’m just deeply un-fussy about it. Pass me the $1 bodega brew or even that $7 latte (thanks, NYC)—I’m fine with either. Until about a month ago, having to go out for coffee hadn’t been an issue; I’d been working in person or was at school where a cup of Joe was never too far away. Now that my job is mostly remote, I’ve been looking for a low-lift way to have coffee at home without having to invest any money, or precious storage space, in equipment. Enter Cometeer.
Cometeer is basically excellent, instant coffee. It’s not instant in the usual way, either—it’s brewed and flash frozen in capsules. I pop the frozen pod in a mug and pour in 6oz of boiling water for hot coffee, or leave it in the fridge overnight and mix the melted coffee with milk for an iced latte situation the next morning. It’s ready in literally seconds. For those who have invested precious storage space in coffee equipment, Cometeer’s capsules even fit into Keurig. Pour a melted pod over vanilla ice cream for an affogato, or add it to a milkshake—whatever you feel like!
