Throughout the year, you may come across occasions that require caffeinated assistance, whether it’s for morning fuel, to boost a bad mood, or something to get you energized through a hectic day. With this blog we will advise you on what coffee to drink & when!


Firstly, did you know that caffeine in coffee can have the following effect on people:

- Improves alertness & attention

- May improve working memory

- May help relieve/protect against depression

- Improves mood


Let’s take a look at what is meant when we say ‘mood’ which can be helped by coffee. The terms ‘mood’ and ‘emotion’ are both often used interchangeably in colloquial conversation however, in scientific terms, mood and emotion have different definitions. A mood is a relatively long-lasting affective state; while an emotion is of shorter duration. It has been suggested that emotions can be defined by episodes of synchronised change, with components such as bodily reactions like blushing and motor expressions such as a gasp or sigh because you ran out of coffee (we have subscriptions for this J).

Scientists have long suspected that caffeine boosts mood and in fact several studies have found a link between coffee consumption and a reduced risk of depression. So, if you feel a little down why not try our Reviving Dark Roast coffee. An all-day drinking blend of walnut nuttiness balanced with a chocolatey sweetness. A bold statement of distinctive coffee that can knock the blues away.

Research has suggested that caffeine may accentuate non-habitual caffeine consumers’ emotional responses to negative situations, but not how they choose to regulate such responses. If you feel you are emoting stress why not try our Awakening medium roast coffee. It’s not too strong that it amplifies your stress but may in fact motivate you to move past it.

You’ve got a big event coming up and you need some added energy to see you through the day? From lethargic to lively try a mid-morning Desert Rise. A popular strong coffee choice from our Barista Range, with a taste of citrus and red berries, its one of our go-to morning rise necessities.

And… if you’re feeling particularly adventurous why not soar across to our Reserve coffee range. Crafted from selected regions in Africa and the Americas, these blends of popular single origins whisk you away to exotic places – a 1st class journey for your taste palate.
