Consider the following scenario: You’re on a multi-hour car journey throughout the United States. Your playlist is ready to go. All of your luggage (and refreshments) have been packed by your co-captain. Your GPS has been programmed to avoid tolls. Only one thing is missing: coffee.
While you may certainly pack your favourite coffee grounds to use in the hotel or Airbnb’s coffee machine, brewing coffee while physically on the road is impossible, and stopping regularly at off-ramp drive-thrus can easily throw your schedule off.
Thankfully, for committed coffee aficionados on a lengthy road trip, Jot Coffee is the travel-friendly alternative. Only a tablespoon of Jot is needed to turn a bottle of water (or milk!) into a cup of coffee, since it is marketed as “the cleanest, most concentrated form of liquid coffee in the world.” The miraculous change takes only a few seconds to complete, and then you’re ready to go.
Jot’s beans are 100% organic, ethical, and sustainably produced from South America, and each bottle is 20 times more concentrated than normal coffee. Because Jot extracts flavour from its beans using a proprietary method, it has a higher yield, less waste, and a smaller environmental effect than other “instant” coffee choices.
While the brand has seasonal varieties, Jot’s Ultra Coffee is available all year and has a smooth, strong flavour. Jot was better than instant coffee, according to one reviewer, who stated they “did not expect so much depth of flavour from a concentrate” and that it was “better than most drive-thru iced coffee.”
Tony Hawk, a famous skateboarder, and Kevin Kwan, the author of “Crazy Rich Asians,” are both admirers of the brand. Hawk has referred to Jot as his “kick-start,” while Kwan has stated that the brand “fuels” his writing. The greatest thing is that each Jot bottle carries around 14 cups of coffee, so you won’t have to halt your journey for a refill – simply have your loyal passengers top you up. Plus, when compared to other grocery-store travel-friendly coffee alternatives, the compact 200-milliliter bottle can easily fit into a cooler, leaving plenty of room for water and food.
