There’s now a coffee drink made with sound waves

By , Jun 30 2015

And no, it’s not QT.

Elixir Specialty Coffee says their signature beverage “looks like whiskey, feels like tea, made from coffee,” but the strangest thing about it isn’t its look and taste: it’s how it’s made. While the company is vague about the specifics, LA Weekly reports that the process uses “sonication-assisted extraction,” blasting water and coffee beans with high-frequency sound waves to diffuse the caffeine and flavor of the coffee. You can buy Elixir at select dealers in Los Angeles and Sydney, or you can try ultrasonic extraction at home with the $5,000 Sonicprep
