Fancy a good “Cup of Joe”? Need your caffeine kick every morning when the sun rises? Have the percolator running for those long working hours or study sessions, to keep the mind alert? Or occasionally treat yourself to a fabulous caffeinated drink, whether it’s a Café Latte, Cappuccino, Espresso, Flat White, Long Black or any other coffee bean blend.
As a creative, my kettle is always ready to boil, the percolator at the ready for those long writing or design sessions. The pantry, always stocked with various coffee blends and flavours. As a cyclist and runner, a little caffeine kick on the go is often part of my ride or run. The added protein to the “Coffee Freezo Protein Magic” makes it an ideal beverage for an athlete. If you’re not an athlete, this lovely Freezo can also be enjoyed if you did not have time to prepare a traditional breakfast, and you need something on the go. Tasty and filling!
