Coffee Stick


Sometimes in the quest for coffee by those who love it, people are inspired to create things to make coffee more convenient. But they sometimes lose sight of just how simple it is to make a good cup of coffee. Concept’s like the above, by designer Heo Jeong Im, seem to illustrate how short sighted a good intentioned idea can be.

Sure the coffee stick may look cool, but what’s the environmental impact from an object like this? And who want’s an instant cappuccino? Without foam, can it even be considered one by definition? What do you think, great idea or what a waste?

Get a whif of this


I thought this was an April Fools joke at first, but it’s legit, it was on Oprah!

Le Whif was developed by a professor of biomedical engineering at Harvard who was studying his idea of “eating by breathing.” First in chocolate form (all the taste with less than 1 calorie), and now in coffee! I guess I don’t need to snort my Starbucks Via anymore, I can just inhale the 100mg of flavored caffeine from Le Whif. Weird.
