Cascara not Mascara
Early Riser Coffee has been developed by passionate coffee drinkers and sport enthusiasts.
What is Cascara?
Here’s the clever bit, are you ready… Research has shown that pre-exercise caffeine can enhance endurance and with our added health boosting ingredient Cascara is good for you to, what’s not to love!
The benefits of Cascara include..
• Increased aerobic capacity and cardiovascular health
• Lowers body fat
• Improves muscle tone
• Builds strength, flexibility and endurance
Antioxidants are found commonly in foods we refer to as ‘superfoods’, antioxidants are vital to your body’s immune system and overall health. Pomegranates, blueberries and cranberries all contain high amounts of antioxidants, but it is believed that cascara offers higher levels with reports of regular consumption giving users a revitalised sensation.
High levels of vitamin C and E are what drives the antioxidising
The Pro’s to Antioxidants
Cascara is the dried skin or husk of the coffee cherry fruit. It has been used previously for brewing tea. We have dried and ground the skin so it can be encompassed in our coffee to not only provide a unique taste but also to introduce our drinkers to the antioxidants that it contains.
The Cascara husk offers a caffeine hit like that of English Breakfast Tea (est ¼ of coffee). Proven health benefits of consuming caffeine regularly include:
- Improved brain function and memory
- Helps to fights depression and other mental disorders surrounding levels of serotonin in the blood
- Aids with muscle repair post workout
- Alertness and attentiveness increased
For people who take part in any sporting activity there is always the risk of injury. Cascara has the benefit of not only promoting a natural energy release but also has been speculated that it can assist in reducing swelling and inflammation of external and internal injuries.
Finally, when you taste our coffee allow your senses to take in the distinctive characteristics by:
- Opening the packet, inhale deeply and take in the fresh aroma of the coffee
- When you spoon your coffee into your cafetière or expresso machine look at the intensity of the colour of the blend
- While the brewing takes place enjoy the rich, full bodied aroma that the steam omits
- On your first taste of your freshly brewed coffee feel the texture of the coffee and sense the impact of the coffee in your mouth
- Succumb to the taste and notice any lasting lingering flavours
- Lastly, Enjoy!
What Our Customers Say
Early Riser Coffee - Smokey Blend “On opening the packet, the appearance was of a dark roast and it had a rich slightly smokey aroma.
I first tried the coffee as an espresso and the initial taste confirmed it was a dark roast. The flavour was intense with hazelnut and coffee tones, this was closely followed by notes of dark chocolate. Whilst intense in its flavour it was a smooth blend without being too acidic.
It was more an after-dinner coffee than a breakfast blend due to the depth and strength of flavours but for a caffeine kick with a great taste I’d certainly have it again.”
"Do you need a kick in the morning? Then this is the coffee to get you going.
The Punchy blend is a full flavoured, easy drinking, strong bodied roast, with a subtle bitterness at be end. So whether you’re off to parkrun or just the daily grind Punchy Blend will get you up and running."
Sweet and Punchy Blends
"Ok, Cafetière, hot water, coffee and mug! Take mine black no sugar!Sweet blend is just that. A mellow coffee with no bitter taste! Ideal for a mid morning mellow coffee, smooth easy to drink but doesn’t pack the lunch for me. If you don’t like your coffee too strong I’d say this is ideal for you.
Punchy blend is just that....could really smell the intensity on opening this one! Definitely punchy by name and a coffee that packs the punch. Drinking mine black with nothing added it certainly was intense, full bodied and lots of flavour. Would be my coffee of the two!"
Conceived in Dorset
Being a team of coffee drinkers (with the exception of Gemma), they were on the hunt for a blend that would be less ‘reactive’ on the gut for use at their own races. They quickly became unsatisfied with the current mass-market and generic offerings available at large-scale supermarkets and health shops, so they did what they do best – they decided to create their own.
Working with the experienced team at Naked Coffee, in Bournemouth these three blends were developed to meet various sporting demands. The beans are roasted and ground at the Naked Coffee where they ensure that a quality coffee ground is produced for the sports enthusiasts out there.
This secret superfood packs eight times the antioxidants of blueberries and has been growing right under growers’ noses for hundreds of years.
The White Star Team take a tremendous amount of pride in their coffee, but what excites them the most is their ongoing goal to create partnerships that celebrate the communities they inhabit.
