If you don’t have time for JustOneCup, this inventor thinks you might want a Whif of Coffee. From an inhaler. I’m not so sure that you do as the taste, aroma, warmth, and overall sensory experience is what many love about coffee. But, maybe some people would want a Whif – tiny particles of coffee inhaled into their system. Eight Whifs are the equivalent of a cup of espresso, so if you don’t have time for an espresso, just Whif a bunch. Of course, an espresso is only a sip or two anyway, so consumption time generally isn’t the issue. Regardless, it’s a coffee related invention, so I’ll leave it to you to decide.
I say, if you’re in a big hurry, get a Keurig and a travel mug…

Posted by Jenny Anchondo – PARIS, France. (KOLD) – If you’re so busy you can’t even squeeze in time for a coffee break in the morning, would a spritz of coffee in an inhaler do the trick?
"The Whif" is a plastic inhaler that dispenses tiny coffee particles into the body. The product could target the commuter coffee rush, satisfying that morning caffeine craving with just a few puffs.
Le Whif Inventor David Edwards developed the product following the success of a similar inhaler used for chocolate.
" When I whif, it’s like a sip of coffee, and if I whif eight times I empty my Whif and I’ve received the caffeine content of a small espresso," Edwards said.
Some café workers said the Whif could never replace coffee, especially for those people who like to dip their bread in coffee.
Meanwhile, Whif chocolate is gaining popularity from Paris to New York as a replacement for after dinner chocolate and with children in the playground.
