Hey everyone, its the end of another week and I have brought to you a simple review on COLD BREW. The comparison is between the ever so famous Bulletproof Coffee and the Peloton Coffee Companies. I got the idea as I was walking through Whole Foods and said, “why not just buy two and compare the energy they gave me…”
So in this review, I take the two cold brews and size them up with AROMA (not sure if aroma is a thing with cold brew but I did it anyway), TASTE and ENERGY. I really wanted to see if the Bulletproof would live up to it’s claim in giving you a sustained energy.
I have done some speed research on the difference between coffee and preworkout drinks and their use for workout energy. The thing that I took from this, is that coffee is a very quick release and burst of energy, which speeds your heart-rate up fast and then dies off pretty soon after. The difference between preworkout formulas and coffee, is that preworkout formulas are formulated to give you sustained energy…
Bulletproof claims that you can get sustained energy from the grass-fed butter and the Octane Brain Oil. Somehow the fats act as sources of energy in addition to the coffee. So I set out to test this product. CAN Bulletproof provide sustained energy and does it provide better energy that an ordinary small-batch cold brew. In this case I used Peloton Cold Brew out of Westchester, PA.
Bulletproof Coffee Ranks
Taste – 5/10 – This half rating is due to the fact that this really isn’t cold brew. The way that the company makes their grass-fed butter and MCT Oil infused drinks is with hot coffee and a blender to break down the fats. That being said there must be something else in the store-bought formula to prevent the drink from clumping up. Anyways, I could not really give an accurate rank on taste and aroma because it was like comparing apples to oranges… They were two different things.
Aroma – coffee with creamer?… again like above.
Energy – 10/10 – The energy of the Bulletproof Coffee was amazing. I was able to focus and get my work done with zero jitters and I was shocked to admit it.
Peloton Coffee Ranks
Taste – 9/10 – The cold brew was very sweet and chocolaty (with zero sugars added). This is pretty standard for a good cold brew. In fact the cold brewing process naturally brings out chocolate flavors when brewed at room temperatures. Refrigerated brewing yields similar results. There was a good sweetness to compliment the chocolate note. What was great about this, is that they marketed the flavor accurately and that is all we really care about! I gave it a 9 because I feel like the taste did not stray too far from the average cold brew. That being said, it does blow the mainstream brands like Starbuck’s iced coffee, Califia, and Chameleon Cold brews out of the water.
Aroma – sweet and bold
Energy – 8/10 – The energy was there, but I’d have to say it was quick release and shorter lived than the Bulletproof. I compared these on separate days and made sure I was extremely tired both times. I also did homework during my consumption to test my focus.
They are both amazing products. For taste the Peloton wins, however for energy Bulletproof takes the cake. They are both marketed differently, however their marketing is accurate. Bulletproof has gone way bigger in production and it still provides a working product.
Try both out and if you don’t see Peloton, grab another small batch company. These guys are using quality beans most likely and putting lots of attention in the craft. When you sell for millions of dollars, a lot of time the companies look for ways to increase the profit. This can only be done two ways… Increase sales or cut the cost of raw materials, AKA – sacrifice quality.
