Frozen Coffee Concentrate

View descriptionShare

In this episode, Kenneth once again sits down to speak with his very popular guest Stefan Tribble. This time it is the pros and cons of frozen coffee concentrate that they are here to discuss - including sharing the results of the experiments that they have recently carried out using Comeeter´s frozen coffee concentrate, which at the time of recording was the only large company offering this product across the US.


  • Comeeter buys coffee from carefully chosen roasters, brew it, concentrate it, then flash freeze it.
  • Because the coffee is a capsule when it is flash frozen, the taste is not impacted by any kind of chemical reaction.
  • It is shipped in dry ice.
  • The capsules are aluminum, so they are fully recyclable.
  • The capsules will fit into a K-cup brewer.
  • Use six ounces of water to create the best flavor balance.

‘They use liquid nitrogen to basically flash freeze those capsules that the coffee is in. ´
‘That then gave a TDS that was around 1.8 to 1.93, which I thought made a really good-tasting cup of coffee.’
‘It ends up being about $2 a cup.’
