Best part of the morning? Your eye-opening morning caffeine. Worst part? Waiting in line at the coffee shop for 15 minutes while the person in front of you figures out the chip reader.

If your drink of choice is strong and bold, you might be able to solve your daily conundrum with Steamm, the world's first true bottled espresso that is actually delivered to your door. It's a portable, shelf-stable double shot, packing 130 milligrams of caffeine per tiny bottle. But its convenience is only part of why we love it—it tastes just as good (if not better) than anything whipped up by a barista. At $20 for six bottles, it’s also more cost-effective than fueling a coffee shop habit, and when you sign up for a subscription, you save even more.

 

Introducing, the best travel companion. Lightweight, easy to pack, and all the power you need to keep going. #steammpower

Steamm is steeped with raw cacao and sweetened with organic stevia, and the coffee company will soon be launching a "flavor" prepared with cane sugar. The espresso is solar-roasted in San Francisco and is completely organic, so there are no pesticides, preservatives or GMOs. And each shot is pulled by hand—no mass-producing involved.

Rather than just knocking it back in one go, we recommend thinking outside the bottle: Use it for affogatos, homemade lattes and sweet chai tea. And you’ll feel good about drinking it, too: For every shot of espresso you buy, a polio immunization shot goes to a child around the world.

If you still need convincing, consider this: At two ounces, it complies with the TSA's liquid requirements. Your red-eye just became tolerable.
