(Newser) – A Harvard biomedical engineering professor and his students have come up with the perfect solution for coffee lovers short on time—or cups. His company, Le Whif, has created a range of inhalable coffees, delivered via lipstick-sized tubes. The inventors say each tube holds as much caffeine as a shot of espresso.

Le Whif rolled out its inhalable—and calorie-free—chocolate for sale via the Internet last year, and will now sell its products in cities across the US and the world, the Harvard Crimson reports. Employees and fans sucked down tubes of coffee and chocolate at Le Whif's launch party, where a product manager outlined some plans for the future, including an inhalable three-course meal.
