Snack by Yardstick Coffee isn't some newfangled coffee-flavored potato chip or coffee bun. They're Yardstick's newly released Nespresso-compatible coffee capsules designed to tide over a quick coffee craving without the jolt. Think not-so-serious coffee for the coffee connoisseur.

"We grab a snack to maintain energy and stay focused," according to Yardstick's press release. "Snack is about making specialty coffee a little less serious and a lot more fun." Putting itself between a milk-based beverage and brewed coffee, the Snack is meant to be sipped any time of the day and it carries flavors that pay homage to popular snacks.

All containing 100% specialty Arabica coffee, the Snack features Butter Pecan (with Rio Paranaiba, Brazil coffee), Lemon Cherry Bar (with Huila, Colombia coffee), and Cacao Nibs (with Cauca, Colombia coffee). While the two former flavors boast recyclable capsules, the latter is actually in compostable containers. The beans and roasting process were selected specifically for Yardstick's capsule brewing–all meant to make instant coffee gratification a delicious experience.

Snacks are meant to be consumed black or with milk and customers can even brew it longer for a stronger flavor. 

Though they designed capsules to make coffee much more accessible, the folks at Yardstick still believe you deserve the best, so they've come up with better ways to enjoy your cup of joe.
