10 Best Coffee Beans That Will Energize You Every Morning

10 Best Coffee Beans That Will Energize You Every Morning

Coffee is the ultimate form of energizing yourself in the morning. When drinking coffee in healthy moderation, coffee can provide you with different benefits beyond energizing yourself in the morning. Below, we’ve hand picked some of the best coffee on the market that will deliver you plenty of energy every single morning.

Criteria For the Best Coffee Beans

Before jumping into the items specifically, what do we consider to be the best coffee beans to energize you? To give you an idea, each of the coffees we’ve suggested have met the following criteria in terms of boosting energy:

  • High caffeine amount – The biggest part of energy from coffee stems from the caffeine it has in it. We ensure that the caffeine content from these coffees is at a safe level but also still higher than most typical brews.
  • Single-serving energy – What we mean by this is that you don’t need to be drinking a lot of these to feel their effect. In many cases, all you need to do is go through a single cup of these products and you’re good to go.
  • Health benefits – Research shows that drinking coffee can lower risk of diabetes type 2, Parkinsons, improve your liver, lower risk of heart problems amongst other things. Some coffee beans do better than others in terms of providing these benefits.

1. Infuel Energy Coffee

    The first on our list is the Infuel Energy Coffee. It’s all ethically sourced and roasted from whole coffee beans. This particular brand will provide you with more energy due to the fact that these beans go through a light roast.

    Light roasts are denser due to not being as exposed to the heat compared to darker ones. Density is key because when coffee is more dense, it’ll store more caffeine in it than usual, thus you’ll be getting more energy from this than dark roast coffee. And even though this is light roast coffee, you still get the same health benefits as you would from drinking dark roast coffee such as lower heart risks, improvement of your liver and prevention of diabetes type 2 and Parkinsons.

    There is also a stronger version called Infuel Energy PLUS Coffee. As the name suggests, the coffee beans go through a different process to make the coffee stronger without sacrificing the original flavor.

    Both Infuel Energy Coffee and Infuel Energy PLUS Coffee are available at the Lifehack Shop.


    2. Cafe Don Pablo Subtle Earth Organic Gourmet Coffee

      Organic coffee is a rarity in the industry, but Subtle Earth Organic coffee represents organic coffee well. The arabica beans come from Marcala region of Honduras and are grown several thousand feet from the ground.

      This light roast blend is certified by the USDA as organic, GMO-free and are grown without pesticides and insecticides. You’ll be able to experience a great flavor from the coffee beans of Subtle Earth Organic coffee while still getting plenty of energy from it.

      3. Shock Coffee

        Claimed to be the strongest caffeinated all-natural coffee, Shock Coffee is all about finding a balance between taste and caffeine concentration. The coffee itself doesn’t have any additives, allowing you to enjoy the various flavors that this brand tends to offer.

        Not to mention getting the fullest extent of health benefits from drinking coffee. If you need to be alert, a cup from Shock Coffee will do nicely.

        4. Caribou Coffee Daybreak


          Caribou Coffee gets their coffee beans through sustainable Rainforest Alliance-certified farms ensuring that the farmers are treated fairly in the exchange and also that their product doesn’t harm the environment.

          This is another light roast blend to ensure that you get a high amount of caffeine and energy from it while also enjoying the flavor that Caribou Coffee brings — A sweet, subtle flavor with floral cherry overtones paired with a finish of caramel and nut.

          5. Death Wish Coffee

            Despite the dark name, Death Wish Coffee won’t kill you if you stick to a single cup. That being said, it is the world’s strongest coffee in the market. The beans are roasted in small batches allowing an intense aroma and bold taste to come from it.

            As a warning though, because Death Wish Coffee is the strongest, it can cause some stomach issues if you’re not used to high amounts of caffeine, even if you’re only sticking to one cup.

            6. Kicking Horse Coffee

              Another dark roast coffee to give you a strong kick in the morning is the Kicking Horse Coffee brand. Their best coffee beans are whole beans and dark roast. Their brewing method allows for rich flavors to become noticeable too with rich dark chocolate, cacao nibs, brown sugar and roasted hazelnuts mixing in a medley of flavor.


              All you need is two tablespoons of Kicking Horse Coffee and you’re good to go, but you can always put more in if you’re feeling bold.

              7. Carraro 1927

                Like many on this list, the Carraro 1927 uses Arabica beans. However, it also mixes in Italian espresso coffee beans to add an extra kick to it. It’s made by picking out the best quality coffees that the company produced that year and is individually roasted and blended immediately before being shipped off.

                Because of the wide variety of coffee being mixed in with espresso, Carraro 1927 is bound to get you up and enjoy the health perks of drinking coffee. If you’re looking for good aroma and a new experience while feeling energized, don’t hesitate to pick up a tin.

                8. Peet’s Coffee Colombia Luminosa

                  With a cool sounding name like Luminosa, the name also works to get people to feel what light roast is about. Peet’s Coffee has been operating for over 50 years and has perfected their technique to ensure you get plenty of health benefits and the energy you need.

                  Peet’s Coffee is roasted in small batches by hand and are roasted on a per-order basis. This ensures you get top-quality products. This particular batch has a floral scent to it so you could crack a joke and say you’re “taking a break to smell the flowers.”


                  9. Cameron’s Coffee Breakfast Blend

                    Cameron’s Coffee Breakfast Blend take pride in focusing on what a good morning brew is: the beans. Their overall goal with their coffee is to bring out the best flavor of each bean to ensure you don’t get a bitter taste and still get plenty of energy from it.

                    Similar to Peet’s, they roast the beans in small batches before being cooled down immediately after. The beans are also sustainably grown which makes it satisfying to know when you’re drinking down their energizing and fruity coffe – Cameron’s Coffee Breakfast Blend.

                    10. Starbucks French Dark Roast

                      Starbucks was bound to be making this list at some point due to their overall quality and popular coffee. It’s hard to argue that their coffee doesn’t provide a proper kick in the morning if you need it.

                      Out of the various coffees Starbucks offers, their French Dark Roast is a popular one due to the smoky flavor it provides. These beans are also roasted to the fullest extent, making it ideal for those days where you only need a small amount of energy from your coffee.

                      Final Thoughts

                      There are many ways to be getting your energy fix bright and early in the morning. Coffee is one of the easiest ones with the flavors themselves being able to stir you awake as you’re brewing your coffee.

                      17 Power Pressure Cooker Recipes for Rushed Weeknight Meals

                      17 Power Pressure Cooker Recipes for Rushed Weeknight Meals

                      Weeknights are wild. There are hobby meetings, sports events, date nights, late-night work calls, kids’ bath time, TV show premiers (of course), and there’s also… dinner?

                      Trying to cram in making a recipe, eating dinner (let alone enjoying the meal) and cleaning the kitchen in under an hour always seemed like it would take some sort of divine intervention. Well, let me introduce you to the power pressure cooker, aka the game changer.

                      The power pressure cooker makes the impossible possible. You can create a healthy, balanced meal in under an hour from start to finish. Even decadent dishes such as braised short ribs or whole meals such as salmon with potatoes and broccoli can be enjoyed from start to finish with breeze on a weeknight.

                      Is there anything easier than throwing your whole meal in one pot and letting the pot do the work? I can’t think of anything. It’s as if you significantly upgraded the already kitchen staple, the crockpot.

                      Here are some of my favorite power pressure cooker recipes to get dinner on the table under pressure:

                      1. Ramen Soup

                        For those nights when all you need is a big hug, ramen is the perfect dish! High in anti-inflammatory ingredients such as fresh ginger, garlic and spinach this 20-minute soup is good for you in every which way.

                        This quick ramen is balanced with lean protein from the chicken and soft-boiled eggs, starches from the noodles, and a salty broth that makes you crave more!

                        To bump this recipe up even more nutritionally, try doubling the carrot and spinach for extra vitamin power.

                        2. 4-minute Salmon, Broccoli and Potatoes

                          What is better than a perfectly balanced meal in just 4 minutes? I can’t think of anything!

                          This wonderfully fatty fish blends so well with the super food broccoli and starch of the potatoes that you won’t believe it was done in such a short amount of time!

                          Salmon is a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids (aka fish oil) that helps our heart, skin, joints, GI tract, and much more!

                          3. Beef Gyros


                            A warm pita wrapped around freshly made gyros, toppings, and even Tzatziki sauce, oh my! This recipe goes from fridge to plate in under an hour with only 15 minutes of prep time!

                            When creating the Tzatziki sauce, be sure to grab plain Greek Yogurt. This yogurt is naturally higher in protein, adding another nutritional benefit to this great dish! You can also opt for a whole wheat pita to add some extra fiber too!

                            4. Shrimp Boil

                              This recipe is perfect for summer beach nights, a classic shrimp boil recipe that you don’t have to spend all day preparing! This recipe is fun finger food to the max! It is delicious, satisfying and tastes the best when served on a picnic table.

                              To take this recipe to the next level, adjust the proportions of veggies to protein. By increasing the corn and decreasing the amount of Andouille sausage, you can decrease the total sodium and calories while increasing the fiber and vitamins!

                              5. Mexican Quinoa

                                The perfect one pot meal with fiber, protein, and lots of flavor! This is a vegetarian and meat-lover dream!

                                Quinoa is the perfect substitution for white rice in this classic recipe while complimenting the beans to create a protein filled dish. Plus the addition of all those vegetables creates a meal that is bursting with flavor. Top this Mexican quinoa with fresh avocado to perfectly round it out.

                                6. Lo Mein

                                  7. Whole “Rotisserie” Chicken


                                    Everyone knows that the secret to batch cooking is to have a whole chicken cooked to use in various ways throughout the week!

                                                        Despite its apparent roots in the crockpot concept, power pressure cooker meals are apt to be much healthier. Without the need for fatty sauces to create flavor and prevent dryness, the power pressure cooker uses the heat generated by the water to cook the food. This leads to more flavor without dryness and overall leaner meals.

                                                        The power pressure cooker is the answer for anyone striving for healthy, balanced meals with a crazy weeknight schedule.


                                                        It really can do it all. You won’t be disappointed and you’ll feel great after enjoying healthy, balanced meals while easily juggling all the activities you enjoy!
