Why? Logic meets life. Coffee is great. Enjoying a cup in the morning is something that I love. Adding superfoods to my coffee, particularly when they're blended with milk and healthy fats. From only caffeine to caffeine + stress protection + stable energy. I'm a big fan of +s that pay off. So let's get right into some coffee dosing options that are available and easy enough to source with a little online research.

Coffee + All of the Above = Modern Day Dose

Does it sound extra to need caffeine + relaxation + extra energy + immune support + a dose of mindfulness? Maybe. But to me it sounds like the start of a remedy to modern day stressors, environmental issues, and expectations.

So let's say you're interested, but these ingredients are not currently in your pantry. A great way to start exploring ways to dose your coffee is with a blend, which helps lead to your preferences and eventually the investment in single ingredients (or at least this was my path and so of course I am biased).
