The quick and dirty: I’ll break down each coffee IN DEPTH below but if you only have 10 seconds:
Coffees to Power On: Think & Perform
Choose Think or Perform Coffee when you want to double down on why you are drinking coffee in the first place. The functional ingredients added into these two products give you so much more than just the standard benefits of a high quality cup of coffee. The additional functional ingredients actually make your coffee more effective for that “why”. Let’s break it down. If you’re sipping your morning brew because you have a big mentally stimulating day ahead, Think coffee is for you. If you have a lot of physical demands in the day ahead, Perform coffee may give you all the extra fuel you need. Both coffees are to help you power on, brain or body, to focus on whatever your day has in store.

Coffees to Prepare: Immune Support & Gut Health
To us, “prepare” means supporting the foundational systems of your body. The root This means a daily defense to keep the immune system strong. Did you know that up to 70% of immune cells are located in the gut? Gut health and immune health go hand-in-hand. When one is supported, the other receives the benefits and vice versa.
Your daily bodyguard. Elevate your internal defenses with a deliciously functional brew. We've paired premium organic coffee with four immune-supporting ingredients—vitamin D, zinc, Turkey Tail and Chaga mushrooms—for a supportive lift to your morning routine.
Same coffee, new name. We used to call this Defend Probiotic Ground Coffee but updated the benefit to be more specific and clear about its function. This is truly a gut cup of coffee. Support your digestive health with coffee that loves you back. We've paired premium organic coffee with four remarkably gut-friendly ingredients—probiotics, prebiotics, Turkey Tail and Chaga mushrooms—for a delicious brew that’s good for (and gentle on) your stomach.
Coffees to Restore: Balance & Chill
Are you someone who loves coffee but is prone to the negative side effects that often come along with it? Crash and jitters, anyone? This category of coffee offers delicious coffee that is half-caffeinated or decaffeinated with functional ingredients that help create a more calm and balanced coffee experience.
Same name, adjusted formula. This coffee now contains half the amount of caffeine as it used to. We adjusted the caffeine content to make this coffee more effective for its functional purpose. It’s now much more aligned with the “balance” desired from drinking this brew. You can think of it as your daily balancing act. Help your body adapt to daily stress with the power of adaptogens. We've paired premium organic coffee with four unbelievably balancing ingredients—Ashwagandha, Eleuthero, Tulsi, and Chaga mushroom—to give you a boost of energy while supporting occasional stress with every delicious sip.
