In Nashville, Tenn., Steadfast Coffee Co-Founders Nathanael Mehrens, Jamie Cunningham and Sean Stewart have for years been plotting the development and launch of a canned, RTD, shelf-stable manifestation of their Matchless Coffee Soda.

"A burr grinder uses two toothed disks to uniformly break down roasted coffee beans into specific particle sizes," explained Nathanael Mehrens, inventor and partner at Matchless Coffee Soda.

In 2014, they teamed up with Ben Bredesen of Fat Bottom Brewery to use his facility and make this bubbly nectar of the gods that perks you up and cools you down. - Written by Elizabeth Dahl, Matchless Coffee Soda Will Make Your Mornings More RefreshingRead More

We knew the coffee soda we had at Steadfast Coffee a couple years ago was going to be a hit. For something that doesn't sound too terrific (coffee + soda), it's fantastically good. And apparently the nation thinks so too, as the demand has increased. So much so that founder, Nathanael Mehrens, along with partners Sean Stewart and Jamie Cunningham have lauched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to ramp up production in their new cans.Read More

"Cold coffee takes on a whole new meaning at Crema, where head barista Nathanael Mehrens masterminded an über-refreshing coffee soda. Brewing seasonal, house-roasted beans via Chemex, then sweetening the coffee with a demerara-citric acid syrup, charging it all with CO2 and garnishing each glass with orange, Crema’s coffee soda offers a cool option among the city’s growing coffee scene.
