If you’re like me, you often find yourself in between a coffee shop a half block this way and another other coffee shop half a block in the other direction thinking, “why can’t there be a more convenient way to get coffee?” Truly the indignities we coffee drinkers must suffer when there isn’t a beverage in our hand the immediate moment we decide we could go for a cuppa. Luckily for us, though, there’s an answer: coffee vaping. Now you can have coffee anywhere you want and look totally sweet ass doing it.
As reported by the New York Post, America’s most reliable journalistic institution, the coffee vape is the newest product from the Hong Kong-based Otolab. Called the SnowPlus, the e-cigarette (which should have been called e-Spresso, but whatever) is described as “coffee you can breathe” and is touted as the first vape pod “made from real coffee.” No nicotine, no tobacco, just sweet, sweet, Arabica coffee vapor. Per Otolab, the SnowPlus will “make the world a better place” by adding convenience to coffee, which yeah, no duh, of course it will. I’m sick and tired of 1) coffee being so dang inconvenient, and 2) not being able to smoke it.
And if I’m being really honest, liquid coffee has been letting me down for years now. Do you know how many vape competitions I’ve been “asked to leave” from because when I tried to use traditional coffee to create a sweet jellyfish swimming through sky rings I just ended up spitting hot liquid all over the crowd? Too many to count, that’s how many.
The SnowPlus retails for $39.99 and comes with a start pack containing one Cappuccino flavored pod and one Ice Matcha Latte flavored pod. It is available for purchase via Otolab’s official website. I for one can’t wait for coffee to finally be convenient. And besides, free basing coffee wasn’t quite having the positive effect on others’ views of me that I thought it would.
In other vape news, Juul announced today that it’s laying off 650 employees and plans to cut costs by $1 billion in 2020, and scientists are this close to identifying what exactly is causing a vaping-related illness that’s sickened thousands and killed at least 40. Yay vaping!
