Our fiends created this unbelievable video for us, highlighting our Hibiscus and more importantly the meaning of Pirate Life.
"We are often asked what the meaning is behind the whole "Pirate Life” thing.We believe in personal responsibility. This means not living the average, helpless life, with average health and a slow decline into accepted sickness. The foundation of health can be broken down into focused nutrition and fitness. What the general medical industry considers "healthy" is beyond sub-par. We encourage you to "Pirate Your Life Back," by going far beyond average, and striving for the healthiest, most vibrant person you can be. This requires education and awareness, as well as a ton of self motivation and effort. You will also have to go against what other people are comfortable with and surely beyond some of the things you are comfortable with. This is living the Pirate Life: A life uncommon and quite a bit against the grain. The payoff is real confidence, real physical and mental health, and the most vibrant life you can live.So are you a Pirate?"
Cold brewing your coffee is a great way to decrease the acid in your cup because the process does not extract acid the same way that hot brewing does. Eliminating acid leads to a smoother and less bitter taste. It also preserves more caffeine and nutrients that are killed with heat. That’s why you feel that extra BUZZ with cold brew!
1 Tablespoon Butter from Grass Fed Animals (cows, goats, buffalo)
Stevia, Honey, Cinnamon, Vanilla to taste
In a blender add all the ingredients. Be sure not to fill coffee to top of blender to give the hot liquid room to expand. Blend on low for 20 seconds. Add stevia, honey, cinnamon or vanilla to taste.
Why add MCT oil? MCT is a medium chain fat that tastes delicious, thick and creamy when it is blended. It is the perfect replacement for cream without the inflammatory side effects of dairy. Caveman Coffee Co MCT Oil is from Coconut and is a great source of energy for your brain. It crosses the blood brain barrier delivering quick and lasting brain power to energize your day. Many people report feeling lasting energy for up to 8 hours. Because it is a fat it is satisfying and curbs hunger. It is also an antimicrobial, an anti-inflammatory and a digestive aid.
Is Cacao Butter really butter?
NOPE! It looks white and creamy just like butter. It is actually the inside of the Cocao pod that looks like a giant seed. The “butter” aka Theobroma Oil, is the essence of chocolate. It has the delicious aroma we know as the chocolate smell, minus the sweet smell of sugar that is added to make what we call chocolate. Cacao butter is a vegetable fat that is also an antioxidant or superfood. Cacao also contains trace amounts of caffeine so bonus! Adding just a little bit of this to your drink will make it creamy and flavorful. Enjoy!
