A U.S. start-up has reverse-engineered the coffee bean, producing imitation coffee with the same flavor -- but without the time, expense and environmental impact of using beans. In March of last year, Atomo Coffee raised $25,000 through the online crowdfunding Kickstarter. Less than six months later, a Hong Kong venture capital firm invested $2.6 million of seed funding in the company, which hopes to have its cold press product commercially available early this year. VOA correspondent Mariama Diallo reports.
