The 10 grams of sugar is a bummer, but it is very portable, a huge plus.


#3

I think that’s an error. The pic of the can showing nutritional info has no sugar.


#4

It’s not an error. @frauenfelder mentioned that he had to drink the ones with sugar, but has since found some without sugar.


#5

Ya beat me to it. I was trying to think of some not-overly-snarky way of saying “read the text under the picture.”


#6

Do they also sell a non-carbonated variety?


#7

What if we like shaking?


#8

Drink three.


#9

Done!Mydoctorsaysit’sbadformyheartbutseriouslyfuckthatguywhatdoesheknowanyway?


#10

For cold canned coffee I tend to like cream+sugar so the Starbucks Double Shot is good stuff for me.


#11

Sounds like a dare?


#12

A local place shelves these in quantity @ $2.99 a can, I guess they are popular.

#14

Roger That!


#16

I like it but I’d only pay about $1.50 or $2.00 for it. $3 is a bit much.


#17

Freeze it. There’s a limit on liquids, not solids.


#18

It’s the nitrogen.


#19

Does anyone know why my post double-posted? That was super weird.

Illy also pioneered the use of nitrogen to preserve coffee after roasting; I think they started before the war. Andrea Illy literally wrote the book on coffee chemistry.

The Issimo discussed here was an Illy-Coca Cola dual venture, and has been around for several years. One of the airlines serving Honolulu used to offer it on the flight.

This was not something I knew… and that is a book that I now know desperately need to have. Fucking academic pricing, too.
