    The Computer Online Forensic Evidence Extractor (Cofee) is a USB thumb-drive developed by Microsoft that was distributed to more than 2000 law-enforcement officers in 15 countries including the United States, Germany, New Zealand and Poland. Software on the device supports more than 150 commands that eliminates the need to seize the computer from the scene because it can gather the evidence right there.
