If you’re the kind of person who NEEDS a cup of coffee (or several) to get through your day, but at the same time, can’t stand the way it stains your teeth, you’re about to be very happy. Because clear, colourless coffee exists. And while you never knew you needed it before, it’s now exactly what you need.
Clear Coffee (a.k.a. Clr Cff) is the first magical, totally transparent elixir that looks like water but tastes exactly like a strong cold brew. And surprisingly, there are no preservatives, stabilizers, sugar or sweeteners; just water and high-quality Arabica coffee beans. That includes caffeine, of course.
“It is produced by methods which have never been used before,” the website reads. “Due to this combination of technology and high quality ingredients a drink has been developed which is unique in taste and flavour.” Plus, you don’t need to sacrifice the whiteness of your smile to drink it.
Adam Nagy and David Nagy, the company’s co-founders, have refused to reveal how they’re able to strip coffee of its colour, but David did explain why they made the drink: “Because of the hectic lifestyle, we wanted to make a refreshing ready-to-drink coffee which provides the boost, but is low in calories.”
Sure, it looks cool, but what does it actually taste like?
Well, the Nagy brothers formulated the drink so that consumers don’t need to add sugar or milk to it. So if you like your coffee black and bitter or even a little creamier, this might not be the drink for you. And if you like your cup of java piping hot, then you’ll have to be okay with drinking regular coffee (and putting up with the stained teeth that come with it). But Clear Coffee’s the best bet for anyone who no longer wants to buy whitening strips in bulk.
Sadly, as is true with almost all good things, there’s a catch: it’s only available in the U.K. and Slovakia right now (though it also ships to the U.S.), so you might only be able to sample one of these on your next international trip. But if clear coffee catches on abroad, it’ll only be a matter of time before you manage to get you hands on some.
