One of our favorites finds in Door County, Wisconsin as the appropriately named Door County Coffee. You don’t have to venture to Wisconsin to find this coffee, you can order it online and it is well worth it. Door County Coffee is a small, family-owned business, that roasts their coffee in small batches to exacting specifications. You certainly can taste the difference in their coffee due to the fact that they use Specialty Class 1 Arabica coffee beans, which are the top 2% of what is grown in the world.

Our personal favorite go-to coffee Bulletproof just released their new Bulletproof Coffee Cold Brew. It’s the same recipe as the coffee they sell for you to brew, but with this you need no blender, bottles, or extra grass-fed butter required. Each bottle is perfectly portioned to fit in purses, backpacks, briefcases, and lunchboxes and there are four delicious flavors (Original, Vanilla, Mocha, and Original with Collagen Protein). If you really want to start your day off the right way, just imagine coffee with some grass-fed butter and collagen and you just open the container and drink, it is as easy and tasty as that.
