Coffee is a necessary part of many people’s morning routines. Some people insist that you can’t even talk to them until they’ve had their coffee. It is an addictive source of energy, and many of us are helpless to its powers.
Except for the pesky fact that drinking a lot of coffee turns your teeth yellow. How are you supposed to fully enjoy your morning cup o’ joe if you’re thinking about all of the tooth stains you’re accumulating?
That’s where a company called CLR CFF comes in: they’ve invented the first clear coffee on the market.
CLR CFF has created a clear coffee product that comes in bottles and is meant to simulate the taste of cold brew. And because the beverage is clear, coffee and caffeine addicts won’t have to worry about those unsightly stains on their teeth any longer.
“We are heavy coffee drinkers,” cofounder David Nagy told The Evening Standard. “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.”
How is this magical voodoo product created? Well, the company is a bit cagey on the details (and the ingredients), but they say it’s created using “methods which have never been used before,” and that the drink doesn’t contain any preservatives, artificial flavors, stabilizers, or sweeteners.
“We process the roasted coffee beans within one week after they are roasted. The production process takes approximately 3 hours,” Nagy tells BuzzFeed Food.
It may sound too good to be true, and perhaps it is — some people say the product is a remarkable taste-alike, while others say it tastes like “water…but an aftertaste of coffee.”
Hmm. I guess the only way to know for sure is to give it a try?
The 200-ml bottles retail for £5.99 (about $7.50) per pair. At the moment, the U.K.-based company doesn’t sell CLR CFF in the United States, but they do offer shipping to the US — so if you’re truly eager to rid yourself of those teeth stains, then the only thing standing between you and your dream is the cost of international shipping.
