The tale of the single-serving, self-heating coffee can

Self heating can

Typical that only now post-Starbucks America would ever begin to embrace that which much of the world has adored for something like a decade: the self-heating single serving beverage (in this case, coffee). The process isn't too complicated (some calcium oxide mixes with water in a chamber and heats up the beverage) but leave it to everyone's favorite Austrian chef, Wolfgang Puck, to slap his name on it and get it out the door. Everyone's doubting how well the stuff'll fare in the face of a fresh brew, but c'mon, the sheer novelty factor is through the roof.
