Coffee of the future without coffee beans (2 photos)

The global coffee industry has an annualturnover of over $ 100 billion, but recently the industry has faced two global problems. Global warming on Earth is leading to a reduction in coffee plantations that require coolness and high humidity.

At the same time, coffee plantations generate a huge amount of carbon, second only to cocoa plantations in volume.

The problem can be solved by developing a startup inthe field of food technologies Atomo Coffee, which makes it possible to obtain a flavored drink from extraneous ingredients, such as the husk of sunflower seeds and watermelon seeds.

Coffee without coffee in the near future will joinmeat without meat, eggs without eggs and milk without milk, according to Atomo. A special patented chemical process makes it possible to obtain a drink with a rich coffee taste and the presence of caffeine from third-party ingredients that do not contain coffee beans.

Atomo startup is actively attracting investments fordevelopment of cold artificial coffee drinks at the first stage. The developers call themselves Tesla in the coffee industry and look forward to distributing their product around the world. The company places particular emphasis on combating the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. Seattle-based food retailer Cone and Steiner may be the first retailer to market Atomo molecular coffee.
