Cometeer No-Machine-Ncessary Coffee Pods Review: High Quality Brew | MarketingwithAnoy

I hate coffee pods. Keurig and its like have never given me anything but a shockingly mediocre cup of coffee. To make matters worse, digging these beans into disposable plastic is hard for the environment. So when Cometeer showed up in my inbox, I was more than a little skeptical.

Here was a company that sold convenience in a small aluminum cup – brewed coffee, sent to you frozen and packed in dry ice. I was so ready to go on a rampage about the evil of disposable coffee pads and the sad, tasteless coffee they produce. Then I tried it, and tried it again and again. Now it’s something I drink every day. It has replaced my afternoon iced coffee. If you had warned me a few weeks ago that I would write that sentence, I would not have believed you.

Instant coffee fills me with an oceanic sadness. It tastes like waking up in a cheap hotel and frantically getting your clothes packed so you do not miss your flight. It tastes like waking up and realizing that you slept through your alarm and that you arrive late for work and might lose your job. I would rather not drink coffee than drink instant coffee.

On the other hand, freshly brewed coffee makes my morning every day. I’m not turning my nose up at Folgers or Maxwell House or any other grocery brand. If that’s what it’s, I’ll drink it. I’m just busy, and like all coffee powder companies that serve a single serving, Cometeer sells amenities.

Having tasted it, I would say that there is a world of difference between one of these little coffee pillows and everything you would get out of a Keurig or a freeze-dried powder. When your Cometeer pods arrive, they go straight into your freezer until you’re ready for a cup.

If you drink it hot, it will collect in the time it takes your kettle to boil. Just put the pod in a cup and add warm water. If you want it iced, thaw the pod for about five minutes in warm water, otherwise you end up with a small frozen coffee puck floating around in your milk. As with Nescafé and Keurig, it is a time saver if you are impatient or someone who wants a cup on the go. The difference is that Cometeer coffee actually tastes good.

Side by side with a fresh shot of espresso, Cometeer coffee pads are noticeable various. There’s a bit of a sweet note, as if you’re coming out of a grocery bottle of cold brew that just reminds you that it’s not exactly fresh. But add a splash of hot water to make it an Americano, and honestly, it’s pretty hard to tell the difference – depending on the bellows.
