When it comes to morning commutes, your correspondent has learned to compromise on a few things:
Seat on the train? Take it. Elevator door? Consider it held. Jam at an intersection? I’m waving you in.
But when it comes coffee, there’s no room for self-sacrifice, morning rush be damned.
The highly caffeinated demi-gods at S.F.’s Blue Bottle Coffee understand this, and have accordingly developed the first canned version of their cold-brew goodness.
The company — which uses single-origin beans, compostable bags and prides itself on delivering its coffee in 48 hours or less after roasting it on vintage gear — is bringing its ready-to-drink cold brew to LA, NYC and the Bay Area on March 18.
A perfect complement to the company’s existing subscription service, the eight-ounce canned coffees will be arriving at select Whole Foods Market stores nationwide in April and the recyclable, aluminum cans will sell individually for $4 or in packs of four.
They’ll save you time and make sure you aren’t latte.
