Clear coffee that won't stain your teeth is now a reality
If you love coffee but don't love what it does to your teeth, then oh boy, do we have some good news for you.
Introducing Clear Coffee (CLF CFF), billed as the world's first colourless coffee - and music to your dentist's ears.
According to its founders, Slovakian brothers David and Adam Nagy, Clear Coffee is made from "high quality Arabica coffee beans and pure water".
Produced via "methods which have never been used before", it's free of "preservatives, artificial flavours, stabilisers, sugar or any other sweeteners".
And - if you're so inclined - you can also drink it cold.
Speaking to The Evening Standard, co-founder David Nagy explained that he and his brother came up with the idea while they were living in London.
"We are heavy coffee drinkers," Nagy said. "Like many other people we struggled with the teeth stains caused by it. There was nothing on the market that would suit our needs so we decided to create our own recipe.
"Because of the hectic lifestyle we lead, we wanted to make a refreshing ready-to-drink coffee which provides the boost but is low in calories."
In fact, the drink contains only two calories - and there's 27g of coffee in each jar.
The brothers won't divulge the secret behind how the drink is produced, noting only that it's "based on physical processing and doesn't include any chemicals".
Oh, and it can be made into cocktails...
Over on the interwebs, the response to CLR CFF has been mixed, with caffeine fans not sure if they love it or loathe it.

Clear Coffee removes color and calories. But isn't one of the best... https://t.co/wos0Syfu8j
Sadly, these pearly-white saviours are only available in the UK and the US, with a pack of two costing around $10.
They're already popular, however, and according to the website there's an estimated three to four week wait on delivery.
