Two brothers in Britain have come up with a new formula that makes it the world’s “first colorless coffee drink.”
Brothers David and Adam Nagy said the coffee is safe and does not contain any chemicals or sweeteners. They have declined to reveal how they stripped the color away from CLF CFF, which is now available in Britain and Slovenia. The brothers did not share their production process, but said that the coffee is brewed with arabica beans and water, and made with a method never tried before.
“We are heavy coffee drinkers. Like many other people we struggled with the teeth stains caused by it. There was nothing on the market that would suit our needs so we decided to create our own recipe,” David Nagy told The Evening Standard. “Because of the hectic lifestyle we lead we wanted to make a refreshing ready-to-drink coffee which provides the boost but is low in calories.”
Each bottle packs 100 milligrams of caffeine per 200 milliliters (or just under seven ounces.) So you’d have to drink two bottles to get the equivalent of one grande Pike from Starbucks (which packs 330 milligrams of caffeine into 16 ounces). On the other end of the caffeine spectrum, Black Insomnia Coffee recently landed on Amazon claiming to be the world’s strongest coffee with a bracing 702 milligrams of caffeine per 12 ounces.
Those who have tasted it say the flavor is “odd but not unpleasant. In fact, it’s very drinkable”, however, one taster suggested it has “the aftertaste of cheap wine,” and suggests it would go well with a “splash of rum.”
Those who want to try it can taste the coffee in London or make an online order. A two-pack of 200ml bottles has a cost of $7.50, however, the site said that delivery could take up to four weeks due to “huge amounts of orders.”
