Do you brew your own coffee at home? Do you have your own grinder and coffee maker? Do you actually take the time to find the best beans for your perfect cup? Then you may soon become part of the few, the elite group who insists that gourmet cannot be found in a can.
There are various consumer companies out there doing their best to make coffee even more available and ready to go. No longer will you need to wait while the barista creates your favorite drink. If these companies succeed, you can walk into your favorite stores and pick up your favorite coffee drink off the shelf. No brewing, no measuring, no waiting – just truly instant coffee in bottles and cans. Wow!
New though this idea may seem to some, it’s one that has been around for over a decade. Pepsi tried out a new drink they called Pepsi Kona that didn’t catch. Coca Cola later tried releasing Planet Java that they later stopped producing. Now both companies are trying new recipes and blends of ready-to drink coffee to give the public. Will they hit the jackpot this time?
This may even be a great idea. So many people live on the run. They have very little time for much of anything so this will shave off their time preparing their morning brew. There won’t be any need to walk down the block anymore to the crowded cafe and stand in line. Hooray!
If you’d like to give it a try, Pepsi and Starbucks have together produced some of your Starbucks faborites in this form already. You may want to check out the Double Shot or the Frappuccino. It is a given though that gourmet coffee will always be around.
