We get a lot of wacky things sent to us as Serious Eats HQ, but within the same week, two new coffee-flavored coconut waters arrived on my desk. Two's a trend? Maybe it shouldn't be, but there's one winner so far in this burgeoning category.
'ready-to-drink coffee' on Serious Eats
Coffee at its best is freshly ground and freshly brewed. We like the burr grinder, the French press, the Chemex pot...So how did we find ourselves sipping 20 different ready-to-drink canned and bottled coffees in the Serious Eats office? Well, sometimes you're on a road trip, and the only option is gas station coffee. Sometimes you're stranded at home and out of beans. And sometimes the bizarre new concoctions in the drinks case of your local store just call to you. But should you grab a ready-to-drink coffee in a can or bottle? We were determined to find out.
