N-e-s-t-l-e…Nestle makes the very best…BEER?

From Slashdot, Nestle has applied for a patent for a fermented coffee beverage. Coffee beer? Well, there is a lot of beer out there that’s made with coffee beans. (I plan on making some soon.) What IS different is that it looks like it will be made from the coffee beans itself. "Where do I buy a six-pack?" I thought. Then I noticed something in the patent itself… NON-ALCOHOLIC!!!

Oh well. I like coffee enough that I’ll still drink it.
