Pre-Workout Fuel

Swap your artificially flavored pre-workout supplement for a cup of cold brew before your next workout (or Tough Mudder event). The increase of adrenaline and release of fatty acids will help improve your overall mental focus and physical performance.

Keep Your Mind Focused

According to a research study from the Alzheimer’s Disease Organization, drinking coffee moderately (up to 3 cups a day), could postpone the onset of Alzheimer’s. Now you'll never forget how you felt after Arctic Enema or Electroshock Therapy.

Happiness in a Cup

Not having the best day? The powerful antioxidants in your cup of joe could make you feel happier. Take a walk, grab a fresh brew, and get ready to turn your frown upside down. If the antioxidants don’t help you unwind, the quick mental break will.

Coffee = Abs?

We're all working toward the six-pack of our dreams. Turns out not only is coffee an awesome pre-workout replacement, it helps keep your appetite in check and aids in the breaking down of fat cells, too.

Healthy Heart

Coffee is more than fuel to keeps you awake through 12-hour Toughest Mudder races, it can also help protect your heart and reduce inflammation.
