Coffee Over Cardio | Coffee Maker Comparison: Keurig, French Press, Drip Coffee


The way a person likes their cup of joe is as unique as their fingerprint. From flavor profile to convenience, we are able to control virtually every step of the process. However, this seemingly endless array of options can be intimidating - that’s where this guide comes in! Here you’ll find an in-depth comparison of the three most popular coffee makers: a Keurig, a French press, and a drip coffeemaker. Spoiler alert, there is no “best option.” It depends entirely on how much coffee you need, and the variables you want to control. 


User-friendly?

K: Fill a reusable K-cup or grab a single-use K-cup and place in the chamber, press to start.

F: Place coarsely-ground coffee in press, then fill with hot water until the grounds are fully covered. Wait 30 seconds to steep, then fill the rest of the press with water and wait another 4 minutes. Slowly push the plunger down and serve.

D: Place a filter in the chamber, fill it with grounds, add water to the tank, and press to start.


Brew time

K: 2 minutes

F: 5 minutes 

D: 5-10 minutes


Capacity

K: Single-serve.

F: 2-4 cups.

D: Varies; typically yields up to 12 cups per brew.


Convenience

K: Coffee is made as-needed (one cup at a time).

F: Coffee is made as-needed (one or multiple cups at a time); must be consumed immediately.

D: Coffee can be made in large quantities and kept warm for a prolonged period of time.


Flavor

K: Varies based on the grounds - you can also adjust the strength by the amount of grounds added to the reusable K-cup. The result is consistent.

F: Rich, full-bodied flavor because the coffee oils are present. The result varies with each brew, because each step of the process is controlled. 

D: Depends on the machine - typically a lighter flavor, but it can be adjusted based on the amount of grounds used. The result is consistent.


Hopefully, these factors help you narrow down the ideal device for you. Want something quick and easy? A Keurig or drip machine is likely your best bet. But, if crafting your cup is your favorite part of the day, you may prefer the hands-on method of the French press.

Coffee Over Cardio | Hydrate 101

Coffee Over Cardio | Hydrate 101 electrolyte drink

Coffee Over Cardio | Hydrate 101

We’ve heard it time and time again: drink more water. It’s probably on your goals list for 2020 - and if not, it should be…


Did you know that 70% of the dreaded afternoon lag is due to dehydration? 


However, forcing yourself to constantly drink tasteless water can quickly destroy your dedication. After experiencing the physical difference with the use of a basic, flavorless electrolyte during prep, we wanted to take that to the next level - AND add flavor.


Hydrate is a first-of-its-kind electrolyte formula designed to enhance endurance, recovery, and of course, hydration


Our formula contains five patented ingredients that went through extensive testing (no sketchy substances allowed!) and is produced in our Dallas facility. The star ingredient is CocOganic, a freeze-dried, organic coconut water powder commonly used in today’s quality supplements. Combined with a concentrated blend of electrolytes, Hydrate gives your body exactly what it needs to dominate the day. Not so much performance-focused as it is overall-feel-focused, Hydrate helps you stay awake, encourages you to drink more water, AND improves your health!


We introduced the first electrolyte for your coffee with our initial flavor release, Salted Caramel. Important note: from now on, brown packaging indicates mixing with coffee, and blue packaging indicates water!

 

After an INCREDIBLE response, we soon followed up with Pink Lemonade, designed for any form of water intake from a half-gallon (customers usually add two scoops), to a 10-12-oz. water bottle, to your favorite pre-workout or BCAAs. 


Love getting a pump from your workout? Drink Hydrate - and eat carbs - beforehand. The Himalayan pink salt shuttles the water into your muscles to create that optimal feeling and look!

 

Caffeine is great, but hydration is KEY for survival. There’s a reason this is a TOP SELLER - conquer that 2020 resolution and feel better than ever with Hydrate!
