Life Is Like A Cup Of Coffee... It's All About How You Make It
There’s no better way to venture through the coffee world than to ask the addicts themselves. They know the ins and outs, they can rattle off the must-try brewing methods, and they know just the right things to put in your morning cup of Joe to give you the boost you’re looking for. These are the types of coffee that will keep you coming back for more, and so one does just that.
- Spike your coffee with some Irish Whiskey.
If you dig the idea of enjoying your caffeine fix with a swift kick in the pants, I recommend this traditional, yet popular beverage for you. Rolling out of bed for a bottomless pot of coffee, spiked with a little somethin’ somethin’ is as good as it gets when you have nowhere else to be. Cheers to the freakin’ weekend! Unless of course, you plan on going out. Control yourself, people.
- Build me up, buttered-cup.
I know, I can’t believe it is butter in there, either. If you frequent gyms and social media, you probably know someone who swears by bulletproof coffee. That person may even be you. This high-performance drink is known to boost energy, improve cognitive function and even aid in weight-loss. If you’re looking to dive into this trend, try using grass-fed butter, which has a higher amount of omega-3 and vitamin K than regular butter. Trust me, you’ll never let it slip away.
- Is it hot in here, or is it just my coffee?
And I don’t mean temperature. If you’re looking to spice up your morning routine, add a dash of cayenne to your morning brew. Cayenne has been used to manage stomach problems, headaches, help digestion and even prevent heart disease. Who doesn’t like a little heat in the morning, anyway?
- The only ginger that’s got soul.
Sprinkle some ginger in your morning cup, and simply add coffee. Now reap the benefits of this edgy sip. Ginger contains potent anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds making it extremely beneficial for common issues. If you’re looking to feel your best, and improve any of the following, this will be love at first sip.
- reducing muscle pain
- lowering cholesterol
- regulating digestion
Instead of packing away your black coffee and opting for a fully packed mug of cream and sugar, try living on the edge a little and adding some new things to your caffeine fix. When it comes down to it, life is like a cup of coffee… it’s all about how you make it.
