Not to be derogatory to the non-alcoholic drinks industry, but alcohol-free drinks can often feel a little lacklustre. Yeah, they may taste good, in fact, they may taste great, but when you’ve dragged yourself out of the house to be social after an arduous day of work, when really the only place you want to be is tucked up in bed in your jim-jams binge-watching BoJack, a ‘nice ’mocktail doesn’t quite cut it. Flavour only gets you so far - it’s not going to keep you from nodding off at the bar at 11pm, snoozing while your drunkard companions joyfully tap-dance on the counter. That’s where Social Coffee Tonics by GOOD KOFFEE come in.
As you may have already guessed, these Social Coffee Tonics contain real coffee. But not your boring-old-plain-Jane-daily-morning-espresso type coffee – this is bewitchingly sparkling coffee infused with tantalisingly bold flavours cherry-picked from across the globe. The type of coffee that grabs you by the tip of your tongue and gleefully dances the tango on top of your tastebuds. The type of coffee that puts you in a GOOD mood after just one sip, that jolts your brain out of sleep mode and turns up the dial on the ‘let’s go and create an adventure’ tuner. The type of coffee that you won’t forget.
It's also a coffee that the people who farm it won’t forget either.
