Cana is trying to merge all of the beverage appliances into one eco friendly package…
Perhaps not unsurprisingly, beer does not make the menu. And I would further guess that the hard seltzer and cocktails that are on the list would be shades of approximation at best.

So the eco claims are less efficacious to me. Which leaves sorta OK drinks that don’t taste fresh.
