"We process the roasted coffee beans within one week after they are roasted. The production process takes approximately 3 hours," co-creator David Nagy told BuzzFeed Food. He also said the drink doesn't contain preservatives, artificial flavors, stabilizers, or sweeteners.

Even though the color is different, Nagy says the result tastes like cold brew.

Those who’ve already tried the beverage have mixed reviews: some say it tastes like “potent cold brew”, while others say it's more like "water…but an aftertaste of coffee."

The catch? Clear Coffee is only available on select retail shelves in the U.K. right now — but they'll also ship to the U.S. via their website.

Since the company is based in the UK, you'll only be able to find it in Selfridges and Whole Foods Market stores there. "Currently we don’t have any US stockers," Nagy said. "But we ship into the US as well."
