Clear Coffee Exists—And We Have Mixed Feelings

If you’ve ever spilled your morning cup of joe on your work shirt during your subway commute, or even mildly worried about the teeth-staining repercussions of your daily coffee habit, you’re in luck. Two java-loving brothers from Slovakia got together for the invention of the century—clear coffee—and it’s making us feel all sorts of ways. While it looks like a bottle of water, the substance is no different from your go-to cold brew, minus that signature dark roast color. It’s basically a transparent beverage created to save both your 9-to-5 outfit and your pearly whites.

“We are heavy coffee drinkers,” CLR CFF co-founder David Nagy said. “There was nothing on the market that would suit our needs, so we decided to create our own recipe.” It has yet to reach US stores, but bottles of the first colorless coffee are already on select shelves in the UK, selling at about $7.50 for two bottles. Although we’re not quite sure we’re ready to make the switch from our local Starbucks, we can see this futuristic drink solving at least a few of our caffeine-related problems.
