It’s like instant coffee. But lots better. My friend Michael Galpert introduced me to the Sudden Coffee test tubes. Here’s what a vial looks like:

Sudden Coffee was founded in San Francisco by Kalle Freese. You can buy the coffee on their website. I purchased the 16 cups version for $45, including shipping.

The Coffee Test Tubes or Vials

Each of these tubes contains enough coffee for one very strong cup of coffee. Here’s my review: I like it, a lot. I bought these to give as gifts (high novelty value).

My friend Zach Klein said something like, “My office is a bunch of coffee snobs. Didn’t think we’d like it, but we have all converted.”
