Every day, two-thirds of Americans drink coffee—much of it “stale or poorly brewed,” says Matthew Roberts, CEO and cofounder of Cometeer. Ground coffee beans begin losing their flavor and aroma within hours, Roberts says. His company’s solution: A first-of-its-kind system that brews coffee 10 times stronger than a standard cup, then flash freezes it with liquid nitrogen to lock in peak taste for months. The frozen capsules ($2 each), ranging from light single-origin Rwandan to dark-blend Ethiopian, pack nuanced complexity into recyclable aluminum capsules. Just dissolve in 8 oz. of hot or cold water.
