Apparently we’ve all forgotten the harsh lessons from Crystal Pepsi. And those who forget Crystal Pepsi are doomed to repeat it.
Two brothers in England just started selling a CLEAR COFFEE.
It comes in a bottle and you’re supposed to drink it cold. They say it’s made from high-quality coffee beans and pure water, and it took them three months to figure out the secret formula to make it clear without any chemicals or artificial ingredients. They say they mainly wanted to create it because, quote, “We are heavy coffee drinkers. Like many other people we struggled with teeth stains. There was nothing on the market that would suit our needs.” A British newspaper reviewed it and said, quote, “The taste is strong, like a potent cold brew,” so that’s good. Another review wasn’t quite as kind, quote, “odd but not unpleasant . . . [like] water but with an aftertaste of coffee.”
If you want to try it, you’re going to have to spend some money and be patient. You can get a five-pack from their website CLRCFF.com . . . for $19, or about $4 per 6.7-ounce bottle.
Then throw in another $19 for shipping, and be ready to wait three to four weeks quote, “due to a huge amount of orders.”

As far as I’m concerned, there’s no reason to ever pay more than a buck for a taco. So I CERTAINLY won’t be spending 25,000 times more than that.
A restaurant at the Grand Velas Los Cabos resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico just added a taco to their menu that costs $25,000. So what makes it that expensive?
- A corn tortilla infused with gold flakes.
- Kobe beef, rare Norwegian lobster, and caviar.
- Black truffle brie cheese.
- A salsa made out of chili peppers, expensive tequila, and civet coffee beans . . . which are coffee beans that are POOPED OUT by a little cat called a civet.
- And gold leaves on top.
Even with all those fancy ingredients, I still feel like they’re making GREAT margins on this thing.
But if you’re going all-in, the restaurant also sells a tequila that goes for $150,000 a bottle.
There have been several studies that have found people who drink coffee live longer . . . but none of them quite figured out WHY.
Some scientists at Stanford University just wrapped up a study on the link between coffee and longevity . . . and they think they’ve finally got the answer.
As we get older, one of the biggest things that affects our health is inflammation. It brings on the effects of aging, it hurts our overall health, and it can lead to things like Alzheimer’s, heart attacks, and hypertension.
But the chemical compounds in coffee help protect against inflammation . . . so if you drink a few cups a day, it really can make a huge difference in your health, especially as you get older.

There’s something about this study that makes me super depressed about all of us wasting our lives in a sea of coffee, meetings, and emails.
A new study figured out a bunch of great and terrible stats about the average person’s career. Check ’em out . . .
- The average person will work full time for 47 years. That’s from approximately age 21 to 68. And you’ll work around 230 days each of those years, or 10,810 total days.
- You’ll drink 22,578 cups of coffee, or about two a day.
- You’ll get into 439 arguments with coworkers and disagree with your boss 816 times. That means you’ll think your boss is an idiot about 17 times per year.
- You’ll send and receive a total of 868,560 emails.
- You’ll be late 940 times.
- You’ll take 90 sick days.
- You’ll go through 180 notepads, 258 pens, and 314,660 printed pages.
- And you’ll spend almost three months gossiping about your coworkers.

If drinking one cup of coffee every day is good for your health, then the 15 cups I drink should turn me into Superman . . . right?
A new study out of England found yet ANOTHER big health benefit of coffee.
Researchers found that people who drink even ONE cup of coffee a day are 20% less likely to die after a heart attack than people who don’t ever drink it.
And the more coffee you drink, the better your chances are of surviving.
This is just the latest study that found coffee has serious health benefits. Other recent ones have found it helps fight liver cancer, heart disease, and Parkinson’s.
