What Are Nootropics?

Nootropics, pronounced no-ah-tropics, are compounds that aid the physical and cognitive functions of those consuming them. They can be both natural and synthetic. 

Caffeine, naturally, is the most common nootropic in the world. L-Theanine is another nootropic that is commonly used. It can be found in the amino acids of tea. L-Theanine, alongside DMAE, Alpha-GPC and Taurine can all be found in our coffee blends.

In short, nootropics are compounds or supplements that aid the cognitive processes and physical abilities of those taking the substance. This can be through boosting energy, increasing focus, and improving learning and memory.

It is important to note here that nootropics are not medicines, despite being used in some drugs to treat dementia and ADHD. Much like vitamins, nootropics should be taken by healthy individuals to improve overall health and wellbeing. 

Synthetic (developed in a lab) nootropics include:

These  are used to improve memory and focus, and are commonly found in medications for ADHD and dementia

Combining Nootropics with Coffee

One of the most common ways of taking nootropics is by having them with coffee using a technique called stacking. Simply put, stacking combines multiple nootropics to be consumed at once, much like our coffees. 

Prolonging that caffeine high, our 3 unique blends banish the side effects usually associated with drinking coffee. Based on clinical research and peer reviewed studies, our coffees are infused with nootropics L-Theanine, Taurine, Alpha GPC and DMAE; jitters, anxiety and caffeine crashes are replaced with long-term cognitive and physical benefits.

While caffeine is a beneficial stimulant, and can increase focus and energy levels, it can also cause jitters and post-caffeine crashes.

By combining caffeine with other nootropics, side effects like jitters and post caffeine crashes are eliminated.

About us.


Nootropics can improve wellbeing by reducing anxiety and boosting your mood. By enhancing cognitive function, nootropics help with productivity. Many nootropics aid brain health, by helping in the creation of neurons. Great for creativity and focus.

Today, nootropics are used before physical fitness, and can reduce fatigue, boost athletic performance and aid metabolism. 

  • Taurine delays brain function decline, reduces fatigue, boosts metabolic rates and even helps to prevent heart disease.
  • To reduce anxiety, aid relaxation, help prevent weight gain and speed up recovery we use L-Theanine. When combined with caffeine, L-Theanine reduces stress and enhances focus.
  • Alpha GPC boosts athletic power and improves brain health by encouraging new neuronal connection.
  • Short term memory and concentration is helped by DMAE
