Coca Cola Single Serve Coffee Anyone?


Okay - so maybe not "Single Serve Coffee" but definitely coffee and espresso served in a quick service style. The Coca-Cola Co. on Wednesday debuted its "Far Coast" high-end brand of premium coffee and tea beverages, and also unveiled a complimentary brand for convenience stores and quick-service restaurants called "Chaqwa." These are more like the 7-Eleven of coffee then a machine you'd bring home, but it makes us wonder - maybe in the end the big beverage companies will catch on that people love coffee just as much as soda. Maybe...

As Atlanta Business Chronicle first reported in January, Coca-Cola had been quietly investigating for a couple of years ways to brew high-quality coffee, espresso and teas quickly in individual servings. The Atlanta-based beverage giant (NYSE: KO) filed five U.S. patent applications in 2005 for coffee and tea "pod" designs, single-serving brewing machines, and a system to steam milk to make hot espresso and cappuccino. In late 2005, Coca-Cola filed nine applications to trademark the name Far Coast for coffee, coffee grinders, hats, fruit tea and other products.
