Do you want to hear an embarrassing secret?
I’m nervous to tell you this. You might judge me harshly or even think less of me after I reveal this classified information about myself.
In fact, I’ve never told these facts to anyone, because, quite frankly, it makes me look bad.
Oh well. Such is life. When I began this blog I promised myself that I would speak to my readers with total honesty.
So, here is my dirty little secret . . .
Over the last 10 years I’VE SPENT $10,000 ON STARBUCKS COFFEE!
Sound far-fetched? It isn’t.
Here’s the indisputable math:
The average cup of home-brewed coffee costs 16 ¢
Meanwhile I’ve been paying 19 X that amount at $3.00 a day with Starbucks
So, I’ve been overpaying for my coffee by about $980/year for 10 years
$980 x 10 = $9,800.
Synopsis: I’d have an extra 10 grand today if it wasn’t for my Starbucks habit.
I didn’t just figure this out yesterday.
I was never thick enough to think that spending $1000 a year on coffee was a solid financial move. However, I continued to spend the money for a couple reasons.
95% Of Coffee Is Rubbish
First, I prefer the taste of Starbucks. Their coffee is always flavorful and piping hot.
Store bought stuff stands no chance.
Compared to a warm cup of those perfectly roasted, Asia-Pacific Starbucks beans, 95% of home brew is like drinking water from a warm puddle.
I tried all the big store bought brands in an attempt to save cash.
Each one was blander than the last.
The only way I could drink Maxwell House or Folgers’s was after I diluted it with tons of creamer.
By comparison, Starbucks creates a sensation of fullness in your mouth. It’s so rich and savory – that hearty twang is to die for.
I also didn’t mind spending the money because Starbucks always provided me with a satisfying burst of energy.
Unfortunately, I could never say the same about store bought stuff.
In fact, I always had to drink 2 cups of Folgers’ to get the same kick as a single Starbucks coffee.
Money In The Garbage Can
Basically, I continued to spend 19 x the money at Starbucks because it seemed worth it.
But who was I kidding?
I wasn’t worth it.
Not even close.
$10,000 isn’t a fortune, but it ain’t peanuts neither.
That money could be racking up interest in a Roth IRA account. I could have bought a motorcycle. Hell, I even could have gone on a couple horizon-expanding vacations. Starbucks is satisfying but it isn’t as good as a South American ass-hunting safari.
Enter RED Supplements
So, for the sake of my finances, I had to give brewing my on coffee another go.
I ordered 24 ounces of organic RED Coffee from RED Supplements.
I’m a content consumer of nootropics by RED Supplements.
RED Supplements is an extremely reliable company.
Victor Pride (Bold & Determined) & Chris Deoudes (Good Looking Loser) built the business together.
Everything that Victor and Chris have ever done transcends the competition through remarkable quality and intense research.
That’s why I built this site. I’ve now purchased and used every product they offer. I enjoyed all of them, because all of them helped me increase my income and meet beautiful women.
So, it stands to reason that when I found out RED Supplements was releasing a line of organic coffee I was all over it.
Now, the question of the day is …
Is RED Coffee Better Than Starbucks?
That’s not a simple question.
At first, I was going to say that RED Coffee and Starbucks are neck and neck.
Both beverages are roughly equal in terms of taste, freshness and energy provided.
But, RED Coffee is more affordable. So, it wins and Starbucks gets a demotion.
Sorry, Starbucks but you had your day in the sun.
I’m happy to report that I am now a regular drinker of RED Coffee.
Rejoice. The Starbucks monkey has been flung off my back for good!
My Favorite Things About RED Coffee
RED Coffee packs a wallop.
Strong and bursting with flavor is how I prefer my coffee.
My taste buds react to the density of good ingredients and the full-bodied richness.
RED Coffee offers 3 flavors to choose from:
- Taste is heavy, yet very smooth. Almost no trace of bitterness
- Bold, dark brew
- Organic Sumatra variety
- Grown in Indonesia on a family owned farm
- Taste has a subtle woody flavor. Bold enough for strong coffee lovers while retaining it’s mellow sweetness
- Roasted to a medium roast in northwestern Peru
- Beans are dried under the South American sun before roasting
- Organic Peruvian Arabica variety
- Taste is light and sunny. Zesty and not weak or diluted
- Sourced from family owned farms in Eastern Africa
- Beans are dried on raised beds after harvest
- Organic Ethiopian variety
Every package of RED Coffee is vacuum sealed for freshness.
There is actually a one-way valve on the top of each bag that allows carbon dioxide to leave while keeping oxygen inside.
Coffee emits carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide will hurt the freshness of the coffee if it’s allowed to build up.
RED Coffee bags are so well sealed you literally have to cut the packaging open to get to the grounds.
That’s why each cup explodes with freshness.
The health properties of organic coffee have been understood for thousands of years
Coffee improve alertness, attention and concentration. It actually stimulates neurons. This is going to improve your overall mental health by upgrading your information retention and memory recall abilities.
Coffee was the world’s first weight loss supplement/appetite suppressant.
I stay trim with intermittent fasting. IT isn’t necessary for everyone. However, I gain weight with a quickness, so it’s the perfect solution for me and my slow metabolism. RED Coffee quiets my hunger pains. It’s much less painful to go food-less from 7:00 pm to 1:00 pm when you use caffeine to shut down those hungry voices in your head.
You’re always going to lift harder and run farther after a cup of RED Coffee.
Coffee causes your fat cells to be used as fuel while you put in work.
Plus, coffee is going to keep you focused which will make your workouts productive and effective.
In the past, scientists have sung the praises of tea on account of it’s apparent ability to mitigate the harmful effects of depression. However, credible studies have proven that coffee is even better in this regard. Partly because coffee has more caffeine than tea. Nevertheless, coffee contains many acids that reduce inflammation in nerve cells of the brain. Less brain stress = less depression.
Coffee wins again.
P.S. A bag of RED Coffee costs $9.99 – $12.99 (depending on the flavor).
Or you can grab the Three Coffee Combo for $27.99 and save some dough like I did.
