Matcha lattes. Red Bull. A shot of espresso. Most of us have a go-to drink to help us power through long days, late nights, and early mornings. The problem is, many bottled coffees and energy drinks are loaded with artificial ingredients and tons of sugara recipe for a dreaded sugar crash.</p><bi-shortcode id="related-article-module" class="mceNonEditable" data-type="5c0817cf4598b5060432d334" data-title="The best cold brew coffee" data-url="https://www.businessinsider.com/best-cold-brew-coffee" data-thumbnail="https://i.insider.com/undefined">Related Article Module: The best cold brew coffee</bi-shortcode><p>That exact issue is what led Jordan DeCicco to found <a href="https://www.amazon.com/stores/page/5E0D8D7A-48F9-4981-9798-BB02DB1E3806/ref=as_li_ss_tl'ingress=2&amp;visitId=f8171618-8d22-458d-a027-cd02e7716ad1&amp;ref_=bl_dp_s_web_18060638011&amp;linkCode=sl2&amp;tag=biip_021919_kitu-super-coffee-20&amp;linkId=e47043a774fadc593446091a151ff590&amp;language=en_US" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow nofollow sponsored nofollow sponsored">Kitu Life Super Coffee</a>. As a collegiate student-athlete drained from early morning workouts, Jordan found himself falling asleep in class. Dissatisfied with the energy drink options at his campus storesugary, caloric beverages with little nutritional valueJordan set out to make a better drink with ingredients like organic coffee, coconut oil, and whey protein.</p><h2>Brand background</h2><p>With just a blender, Jordan started whipping up batches of Super Coffee in his dorm room and it wasn't long before his teammates, coaches, professors, and classmates became interested in his healthy drinks and started buying the beverages themselves. The campus buzz was what prompted Jordan to get his older brothers on board and take Kitu Life's Super Coffee to the masses.&nbsp;</p><p>Jordan's dorm-room dream made it to the big screen when he and his brothers pitched Super Coffee to "Shark Tank" last winter. Though <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/successful-shark-tank-rejects-businesses-that-didnt-get-funding-2018-3" target="_blank" rel="noopener">they left the tank without a deal</a>, their exposure on the show garnered plenty of online sales and attracted interest from investors. Last year, Kitu Life made over $1 million in revenue with their delicious, better-for-you Super Coffees.&nbsp;</p><h2>Super Coffee ingredients</h2><p>Super Coffee is a 12-ounce bottle ready-to-drink beverage with 200 mg of caffeine (the same amount as a regular 16-ounce coffee), 10 grams of protein, only one gram of carbs, no sugar, and just 80 calories. To compare, a bottled <a href="https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013OV17DK/ref=as_li_tl'ie=UTF8&amp;tag=biip_021919_kitu-super-coffee-20&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;creativeASIN=B013OV17DK&amp;linkId=794a5b5b3b074786ced7d921b137fdf8" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow nofollow sponsored nofollow sponsored">Starbucks Frappuccino</a>&nbsp;has 95 grams of caffeine, 40 grams of sugar, 46 grams of carbs, and 250 caloriesthat's almost (or more) than a day's worth of added sugar as recommended by the <a href="http://sugarscience.ucsf.edu/the-growing-concern-of-overconsumption.html#.XGwxSs9KiWg" target="_blank" rel="noopener">American Heart Association</a>.&nbsp;</p><p>What sets <a href="https://www.amazon.com/stores/page/5E0D8D7A-48F9-4981-9798-BB02DB1E3806/ref=as_li_ss_tl'ingress=2&amp;visitId=f8171618-8d22-458d-a027-cd02e7716ad1&amp;ref_=bl_dp_s_web_18060638011&amp;linkCode=sl2&amp;tag=biip_021919_kitu-super-coffee-20&amp;linkId=e47043a774fadc593446091a151ff590&amp;language=en_US" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow nofollow sponsored">Super Coffee</a> apart from the other bottled coffees out there is its unique list of ingredients, which, when blended together, taste great and make you feel even better. They start off with organic Colombian coffee that's not treated with pesticides, fertilizers, herbicides, or any other toxins that taint the beans' taste, or more importantly, are detrimental to your health. <a href="https://paleoleap.com/mct-oil-need-know/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">MCT oil</a> (medium-chain triglyceride oil) derived from coconuts provides healthy fats, giving you sustainable energy without the sugar crash. To get a sweet taste without any sugar, they use monk fruit, a no-sugar, no-calorie, all-natural sweetener. For that creamy taste, they rely on a lactose-free whey protein. This provides the same creamy consistency as milk without the added sugars and unhealthy fats. This also makes the beverage easier to digest for those who suffer from lactose intolerance.&nbsp;</p><h2>Does Super Coffee actually taste good'</h2><p>Plain and simple, yes. Plenty of beverages that are touted as healthy don't deliver on the taste factor, but in my experience, that's not the case with Super Coffee. The DeCiccos knew that in order for <a href="https://www.amazon.com/stores/page/5E0D8D7A-48F9-4981-9798-BB02DB1E3806/ref=as_li_ss_tl'ingress=2&amp;visitId=f8171618-8d22-458d-a027-cd02e7716ad1&amp;ref_=bl_dp_s_web_18060638011&amp;linkCode=sl2&amp;tag=biip_021919_kitu-super-coffee-20&amp;linkId=e47043a774fadc593446091a151ff590&amp;language=en_US" target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow nofollow sponsored">Super Coffee</a> to work, people had to actually like the taste of the beverage as much as, if not more than, they liked the ingredient list.&nbsp;</p><p>Super Coffee offers four flavors: Creamy Black, Vanilla Bean, Smooth Mocha, and Maple Hazelnut. All are gluten-free, lactose-free, soy-free, and non-GMO, but more importantly super creamy, sweet, and delicious. They're just indulgent enough, but still manage to be lightso you feel fulfilled without going into a food coma. My personal favorite is the Smooth Mocha &nbsp; when poured over ice or sipped straight from the bottle, it tastes like a grown-up version of chocolate milk, making it a delicious upgrade to your plain, black morning coffee.&nbsp;</p><bi-shortcode id="commerce-link" class="mceNonEditable" data-cardtype="button" data-pid="5e3440e95bc79c7eb6232ee3" data-purchase-option="">Kitu Super Coffee (12-pack) (button)</bi-shortcode><p><a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/super-coffee-review-shark-tank#comments">Join the conversation about this story &#187;</a></p>
