Discover The Libra | Our New Half-Caf Blend

Extend your caffeine ritual past midday without worrying about over doing your daily dose of caffeine with our new blend The Libra. Enjoy the full flavour of our signature blends, with all the intensity but half the caffeine! Magic!

It’s time we talked about caffeine. Specifically, it’s time we asked: is caffeine good for you? Is there such a thing as too much caffeine? And – the magic bullet – how can we reduce our caffeine intake without giving up coffee? (Yes, we have an answer to this last question – read on to find out more!)



Caffeinated coffee is one of the most widely consumed beverages in the world, with billions of cups being consumed every day. It's a staple of many people's morning routines, providing a much-needed jolt of energy to start the day. But like most things in life, there are pros and cons to consuming caffeinated coffee. In this article, we'll take a closer look at the health benefits of caffeine, as well as the potential drawbacks of over-consumption and we’ll introduce you to your new saving grace, The Libra, our brand new half-caf blend!



What are the benefits that caffeinated coffee can have on our health.


1. Boosts energy levels: Caffeine is a stimulant that can help you feel more alert and awake. Therefore many people turn to coffee when they need a quick pick-me-up or are feeling tired.


2. May improve mental performance: Studies have shown that caffeine can improve cognitive function, including memory, attention, and reaction time. This can be particularly beneficial for students or anyone who needs to be mentally sharp for work.


3. May have health benefits: Some studies have suggested that coffee consumption may reduce the risk of certain diseases, such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, and liver cancer. Coffee is also high in antioxidants, which can help protect cells from damage.


4. Social benefits: Coffee is often consumed in social settings, such as meeting friends or colleagues for a coffee break. This can provide an opportunity for networking and building relationships.



What are the potential drawbacks of over-consumption of caffeine:


1. Can cause anxiety and restlessness: For some people, too much caffeine can have a negative effect on their mental health, causing feelings of anxiety and restlessness. This can be particularly problematic for those with pre-existing anxiety disorders.


2. Can disrupt sleep: Caffeine can stay in the body for several hours, and consuming coffee later in the day can interfere with sleep. This can lead to feelings of fatigue the following day, making it harder to be productive.


3. Can be addictive: Caffeine is a stimulant that can be addictive for some people. Withdrawal symptoms, such as headaches and fatigue, can occur when someone tries to quit coffee cold turkey.


4. May have negative health effects: Drinking too much caffeinated coffee can cause digestive issues, such as acid reflux and stomach upset. It can also increase heart rate and blood pressure in some individuals.



Caffeinated coffee, then, has both pros and cons for our health.


While it can provide a quick energy boost and improve cognitive function, it can also cause anxiety, disrupt sleep, and be addictive.


But what if you could enjoy and benefit from coffee all day long without experiencing any negative side-effects?
