If you think this is an instant frozen coffee your very wrong!
I have always been interested and researching new and innovative coffee and coffee products to share with my readers. Just recently I came across Cometeer Coffee, and I had to start researching this newcomer. It’s a new start-up coffee company with an innovative extraction process and provides a subscription business model.
Cometeer claims that this is coffee at its purest form brewed at 10x strength and frozen in a capsule with all its flavor and aroma captured in the tiny capsule. The new process is proprietary and extensive and it uses a precise extraction system which includes:
The Precise size of the grind,
Coffee solids extraction per user cup into concentrate,
Precise pressure used during the process,
Exact temperature used during the process,
Water chemistry and composition used
Coffee extraction yield identical each time
Specific roast level process used each time
Who is a Cometeer?
Despite these challenges, players in the craft coffee industry appear to be welcoming Cometeer into the market. The new company raised $50 million in VC funding, which helps the company scale quickly and begin successful marketing to consumers. It is using part of this investment to expand its operations at a fast pace due to high demand. Cometeer operates out of a 70,000 square foot facility in Gloucester, Massachusetts.
How is it Made?
The company claims, that the process uses science and is designed to extract coffee particles without the coffee beans grind into a concentrated coffee. The coffee picked for this process, is of the highest premium quality obtained from some of the best roasters in the country.
Twenty-six grams of the extracted product is loaded into Eco friendly aluminum capsules, sealed then immersed in liquid Nitrogen which usually reaches temperatures between -346F and -320F and instantly freezes the coffee into a small puck shape. This process locks in all the aroma and flavor from escaping through oxidation or contact with air inside the small sealed capsule until its opened.
The result of this process is keeping the coffee very fresh for a long time naturally and without preservatives. The shelf storage for Cometeer coffee is 14 months in the freezer, 72 hours in the fridge(not the freezer side), and 24 hours at room temperature in an unopened capsule.
Cometeer explains that their process is identical and optimized each time to achieve the same consistency for each serving. Their goal was to achieve a level of brewing perfection only achieved by famous cafes, high end restaurants, and great baristas.
What is the Brand’s Best Feature?
The Getting Started process allows customers to narrow down which blends they are most interested in, based on a coffee lover coffee preference. In my opinion, the best feature of this coffee product is the speed and variety of coffee types you can make with the frozen coffee puck. Below are some examples:
How do You Order Cometeer?
The subscription box will arrive every week, or two, or four weeks, depending on the frequency you choose at checkout. Once ordered, they will then ship the coffee packaged in dry ice to your door.
The subscription service has a wide range of boxes. Choose your favorite flavored capsule and subscribe at the price rate that’s best for you.
Customers can make a cup in the morning, afternoon, evening, or midnight session using a single cup brewing device or drop the capsule into hot water to melt it and add hot water.
As I mentioned, the company ships each box with dry ice. After the coffee is received, it can be stored in the freezer for up to 14 months. That is over a year worth of fresh coffee extract.
Cometeer compares their coffee to a brew that is as good as those Starbucks creations. The capsules provide the tools, but it’s up to the coffee lovers to prove their worth.
How do You Make Cometeer Coffee

Before I get into the company’s details, it is essential to mention that they have thousands of product reviews. Based on all the reviews, the Mixed Box has received a 4.7/5 star rating. The new process seems to be successful with most of the customers that tried out the new coffee.
This company is new and not featured on most site rating platforms. I’ve turned to social media to uncover the truth. I’m focusing on the comments from YouTube, Reddit, Facebook, and Twitter.
One customer wrote, “I had medium expectations going into this – I was mostly interested in the coffee and hoped it would be decent, convenient, priced higher for convenience, but mostly just lot of hype. After the first sip, I had to open each capsule and taste them all. It was amazing.”
This company features a page that highlights all mentions on Twitter, in addition to customer reviews. Although some may find the subscription higher priced per cup, others feel that the quality and brewing ease makes it worth it.
Many feel that the new company can replace instant coffee with simple flavors and subscriptions, just because its very easy to prepare, but the brew is compared closer to a high end barista, or cafe.
These flavorful capsules are great for mornings when you want a great cup of coffee instantly ( nothing in common with instant coffee) brewed.
I believe that this is definitely a different type of coffee from a different coffee maker, and possibly could be the future of coffee making. It’s not for every one, but at the same time, many coffee lovers will be addicted to this brand after they tried it out. What I found out, is that Cometeer coffee is the fastest high end premium coffee to brew at a moments notice.
All Cometeer coffee is available in frozen capsules that can be stored and used at any time. This brand offers a variety of frozen light, medium, and dark roasts in a compact delivery. This subscription coffee brand is new to the market, and I predict that it will go viral with most coffee lovers that tries it out.
