Why We Picked It: This coffee is blended with Yerba mate for a rich, flavorful taste. It will support cognitive functioning and give you an energy boost that will last all day without making you feel on edge, like regular coffee tends to do.
4. Bulletproof: The Mentalist Ground Coffee
Why We Picked It: Bulletproof beans are harvested in Central America, and are without chemicals, such as pesticides. This coffee goes well as a Bulletproof recipe, with ghee, and XCT Oil, and collagen protein, which not only make the coffee richer and more robust, but healthier for you.
5. I’m Stamina Coffee - Organic Nootropic Mushroom Coffee
