Cometeer revolutionized my morning routine. I'd been buying single-origin whole-bean coffee, grinding my beans, and using a Chemex to brew--which makes an unbeatable cup, but is a bit labor- and time-consuming for busy weekday mornings. Their gorgeous branding got me, and I decided to try Cometeer on a whim, never thinking I'd make a long-term switch. Well, months later, my fridge is stocked with capsules, and my morning coffee is done in the time it takes to boil water--literally. Once dissolved in boiling water, the flash-frozen coffee tastes fresh-brewed, and makes an absolutely delicious cup. I subscribe to the light roast selection (you can pick from light, medium, dark, or a combination), and get four boxes of light roast coffee, each from a different small-batch roaster, delivered roughly once a month (you can customize the delivery frequency). The process is so effortless and the results so good that my Chemex, for the moment, has been relegated to kitchen decor.
As amazing as this service is, there are a few drawbacks. There's the price point for each delivery, which was recently increased by $9.99 to include shipping. Although the capsules are recyclable, there's still a considerable amount of packaging waste. And lastly, I wish we'd get some choice in the roasters and coffees we receive each month, or at least the ability to provide some feedback in the event we didn't like a particular variety (this has only happened to me once) and preferred to exclude it from future shipments. Overall, Cometeer delivers top-notch coffee and previously unimaginable convenience, and adds a good bit of fun to the morning routine.
