Win Eight O’ Clock Coffee!

Tuesday, September 11, 2012


Good news for coffee drinks – there is no need to feel guilty about your coffee habit. In fact, studies have shown that coffee can be beneficial for your health. Check out the health benefits of drinking your cup of Joe then enter to win a prize from Eight O’ Clock Coffee.

Health Benefits of Coffee
Recent research has touted coffee as a health food, thanks to the antioxidants it contains. Moderate coffee consumption has been shown to reduce a person’s risk of heart failure, stroke, and lessen the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Both regular and decaf varieties have also been shown to help the body metabolize glucose more efficiently, making it helpful for prevention and treatment of type-2 diabetes. Just be mindful of what you put in your coffee. Adding loads of sugar and calorie-laden creamers can negate some of the health benefits.

Tips for a Stress-Free Morning
By now the laid back days of summer are already a distant memory as busy schedules fill up your calendar. Mornings tend to be one of the busiest times of day in my house. Eight O’ Clock Coffee has provided us with 7 tips on getting your day off to a stress-free start.

  1. Forget stopping for your morning coffee – that takes a lot of time and money.  Prep your coffee pot the night before, so all you have to do when you wake up is flip the switch. Your coffee will brew as you get everyone ready and out the door.
  2. Invest in a great travel mug to take your freshly brewed coffee to go.
  3. Keep a calendar with everyone’s schedules on it right next to the coffeemaker. You can glance at it in the morning and know what’s in store for the day.
  4. Pack lunches and plan outfits the night before to avoid morning confusion.  It can also save you from aggravation from kids who can’t decide what to wear (like my 2 gals)!
  5. Keep grab-and-go breakfast foods, like granola bars and bananas, on hand.
  6. Give yourself a time cushion for unexpected delays (don’t wake up at the last minute!). This year, I started setting an alarm for my 7 year old.
  7. Instead of dumping leftover coffee, store it in the fridge before you walk out the door. An iced coffee can serve as a nice afternoon pick-me-up.

My wife grinds our 8 O’clock Coffee whole beans at night, sets the coffee brewer to auto-brew in the morning when we wake up. Our day begins with the INCREDIBLE smell of 8OC everyday! We both fill our travel.mugs and head out the door, me to drop daughter off at school and my wife to work. If we don’t start the day off with 8OC then prepare for two grumpy people!!!!
