According to Rob Rhinehart, the inventor of the drink, Coffiest from Soylent represents the future of breakfast. It combines the nutritious value of a zesty meal with the taste and consistency of coffee. One shot of Coffiest from Soylent can keep a person full until lunch.
Doctors are advising individuals to eat breakfast every day in order to have a well-balanced diet. However, most adults prefer to skip the obligatory morning meal and go right for the coffee. This habit is not the healthiest, nor the wisest, so Silicon Valley decided to come up with a solution to combine coffee and breakfast in an accessible “to go” form.
A single bottle of Coffiest contains up to 400 calories, making up for almost a quarter of the recommended daily caloric intake. Where do all the calories come from? According to the ingredients listed on the label, the drink is rich in nutritious substances like Isolate, Soy Protein, High Oleic Algal Oil, Maltodextrin, Natural Coffee Flavor, Isomaltulose, Coffee Powder, Canola Oil, Artificial and Natural Flavors, Alkalized Cocoa Powder, Oat Fiber, Soy Lecithin, Isomaltooligosaccharide, Potassium Chloride, Soy Lecithin, Magnesium Phosphate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Choline Chloride, Salt, L-theanine, and Gellan Gum.
While the ingredients may not say much to lots of people, taste-wise, the first assumption after you read the label turns out to be true. The aftertaste of the drink (when consumed chilled) is more artificial than coffee-like.
Coffiest from Soylent tastes chalky, like chewing on liquid Play-Doh with a dash of instant coffee powder added to the mix. However, it’s not that different from all the other bottled cappuccinos, frappuccinos, and macchiatos.
The drink is less sweet that it’s counterparts that feature fewer proteins.
Coffiest is the third Soylent drink to hit the market after Rhinehart decided to purchase every essential protein in artificial form and mix them all together into a gooey, white, thick drink that plans on replacing real food in the future.
While the artificial feature of the drink may be a downside, Coffiest from Soylent is not that bad when you’re in a hurry and need to skip breakfast.
Another plus is the fact that the drink is both gluten-free and vegan so it can be consumed by anybody.
