Bottiglia piccola

Italian for tiny bottle de cafe

When we popped into PastaWorks–an Italian-style grocery store that carries high end items from meats to produce to imported goods at equally high end prices–we just wanted a little pick-me-up. Something fizzy would be nice, but who’d pay $3 for some imported sparkling water? The low-sugar iced teas were appealing, but would they have enough caffeine?

The answer took shape in a bottle of a coffee soda called simply Frizz Coffee. It was on the pricy side, but it was exactly what we were craving. Not until we were outside the store drinking it did we realize what was so great about it besides the contents. At 180 ml, or 6-point-one ounces, we believe this is the tiniest bottled beverage we’ve ever seen. A good 29 ml more diminutive than a traditional “nip.”

Well done, Italian craft java/soft drink maker, well done.
