Is coffee effective to increase yield?
A study led by Dr. Asker Jeukendrup compared the effect of taking 5 mg / kg of isolated caffeine and the same amount of caffeine but based on coffee with the effects of taking decaffeinated coffee or a placebo. Researchers analyzed performance using a 45-minute cycling test, and the results showed that both isolated caffeine and coffee similarly improved performance (5% on average) compared to decaffeinated coffee and placebo.

Why does the FUGA coffee from Wattios Coffee have an extra caffeine? Is it added?
Caffeine is “a defense” of the coffee cherry that acts against insects that want to attack the plant. That is why those origins that are less tall have a higher degree of caffeine than those that are taller. FUGA coffee has mostly a Robusta origin, at a height of 1,400 meters, so both the variety itself and the low altitude make it a very high caffeine bean. To offset the strong caffeinated flavor a bit, this coffee has a bit of the rich Ethiopian coffee, achieving a more balanced taste.
What is specialty coffee?
Unlike commercial or capsule coffee, this coffee has a completely artisanal production process, from the collection of the fruit, the roasting of the coffee (eliminating any type of additive and preservative such as sugar) and finally a bagging without exploitation of people or machinery in the middle. According to Wattios Coffee “specialty coffee is presented as an ergogenic aid for athletes, a moment of pleasure and reflection”
