Coffee you can eat

Espesso. This actually sounds kind of interesting.

The only downfall I see if i bet they will get a lot of wrong orders. Espesso and Espresso sound so similar, plus a lot of people do not pronounce Espresso correctly anyway.

hmmmmm clicked on your link and found this:
Quote:
Espesso consists of espresso and an ingredient the company won't divulge, combined in a pressurized canister and left to set for 12 hours. The result is a mousselike, cold solid sprayed right out of the canister.
I don't know about you but any ingredient the maker "won't divulge," is going to be an ingredient I'm not going to eat. Especially these days with Adria and friends adding all sorts of chemicals to food. The thought is rather unsettling.

Sounds like coffee Jell-O to me. Coffee ice cream I like, but this doesn't sound so good to me.

I think it sounds more like a creamy coffee custardy-mousse thing. In any case, if it were around, I'd try it in a second!

The only coffee I recall eating is coffee candy. The others, I drink.

jkath - we talked about not using all those technical words -

I think it sounds a bit strange too - kind of like when you put left-over gravy in the refrigerator - starts out liquid but turns into a creamy custardy-mousse thing!

EDITED TO ADD: OK, I read the article AFTER I posted this - it actually doesn't sound bad and I'd be willing to try it! It sounds like coffee-flavored whipped cream to me.

Interesting. It may be good if its sweet, not bitter.
