Run Oregon Test Kitchen: Bizzy Coffee Shots

The two things I need most of in my life right now are energy and time. Fortunately, Bizzy Coffee aims to meet both of these goals.

Bizzy Coffee was founded by two best friends who were running a group fitness company while also training for a 24-hour obstacle race. In other words, they were busy. They needed a product that would energize them in a hurry, but they wanted it to be as healthy as it was convenient. Enter Bizzy Coffee Shots, which have naturally occurring caffeine and no sweetners, preservatives, or additives.

The Coffee Shots come in three flavors, (black, caramel, and vanilla,) and they contain 130-150 mg of naturally occurring caffeine. There are no preservatives or pasteurization in brewing and the flavored products have organic flavorings without any added sugars. Bizzy Coffee Shots are certified organic and come in reusable, resealable, BPA Free plastic PET bottles that are convenient enough to put in your pocket.

The makers of Bizzy Coffee really wanted a high quality product, so they only source the highest quality ingredients and use 100% USDA Organic coffee beans. They roast and brew each batch of coffee in their home town of Minneapolis, Minnesota and the beans are ethically sourced from Central and South American farmer-owned co-ops and purchased at fair trade prices.

I tried my first bottle during the Hood To Coast relay, which was a gamble, because anything can happen during those two days and digestional issues are pretty much a given. It was about 3AM and I needed to be alert and ready, so down the hatch it went. I had the vanilla flavor, and it tasted like coffee. This isn’t surprising since the only two ingredients listed are water and coffee, so if you’re more a “I want a splash of coffee with my cup of flavored creamer” type of person, you might want to mix it into something else. It’s recommended that you mix with 2 parts hot or cold water if you want a quick cup of coffee rather than a shot.

I had no issues at all after taking the Bizzy Coffee Shot. I didn’t get any stomach issues or shakiness, and I had none of the feelings people often get after an energy drink of some kind. Bizzy cold brews their coffee so it has a higher caffeine content but less acid, which is easier on the stomach and a great source of energy while training. They brew the coffee stronger than traditional cold brews. I was more alert and I felt like I’d had my morning coffee, which was convenient because I wasn’t going to be able to get coffee any other way that day before I had to run. Honestly, the Bizzy Coffee Shot is perfect for an event like Hood To Coast if you are a coffee drinker.

Currently, Bizzy Coffee Shots are not available to buy in stores in Oregon, but you can order straight from their website.  All major credit cards, PayPal, and Amazon are all accepted methods of payment.

I personally love that Bizzy Coffee Shots are so portable and convenient. They also meet airport requirements and are TSA approved, so I’m planning to bring some with me on my flight out to Colorado later this week. Give them a try! They are great to have on hand for those days you don’t have time for a traditional cup of coffee.
