I came across Coffee Over Cardio on Instagram and if you haven’t heard about them yet let me tell you that the coffee game is about to change! The company was founded by Abbey Scott, a very enthusiastic and driven boss babe who not only believes that coffee is the way to go but also encourages you to live life the way that best suits you. So, of course, it was the name that got my attention-  let’s face it I will ALWAYS choose coffee over cardio, but once I started looking into the company I was hooked. Who doesn’t want to be a part of a community that provides you with caffeine and lifts you up at the same time?


A week or so ago I decided to sign up as a barista babe! (a.k.a a brand ambassador). I love coffee and I thought Coffee Over Cardo and I would work well together. They are a group of individuals, primarily on IG (Instagram), committed to leading healthy lifestyles while maintaining an unhealthy obsession with coffee. Most nutritional guides will say you can have between 2-3 cups of coffee without killing your “diet”. And most health professionals will tell you that this is also a safe amount to drink. But unless you are a hardcore, black coffee type of person, it’s not the coffee itself that is killing your “diet”, but the unhealthy additives that go into it. The syrups, the sugars, or even worse, the sweeteners, and the creamers all add up to calories that pack on the pounds. These types of drinks taste great in the moment, but often leave you with a bloated feeling or make you crash so hard that you have to keep buying into this vicious cycle. Not to mention, they are expensive and can break the bank if you aren’t careful!

Which is why Coffee Over Cardio is such a great coffee brand to help break you of these habits (if it is an area of concern). From the minute I got my first package, the smell hit me like that familiar sensation of walking into a coffee shop. Immediately I  knew I was in for a treat. And after brewing my first cup, I knew my relationship with coffee would never be quite the same.


Here are what I believe the top reasons why you should stop drinking your current brand and switch to Coffee Over Cardio: (If you are loving your current brand of coffee and you aren’t willing to switch why not try Coffee Over Cardio for a week or so as a trial?)

Here are a few reasons why you should consider switching your coffee brand completely or at the very least try cutting back.

  • Less caloric intake due to using less flavored creamers, sugars, and other unhealthy additives. This is important if you’re someone who is conscious and actively working to achieving a fitness goal(s). The flavored coffees allow you to use less creamer or milk (almond milk will curdle in a couple, but although it looks funny, doesn’t really impact the taste), which gets rid of that bloated feeling. The taste is rich, smooth and has a hint of whatever flavor you choose. Side note: Everyone needs to try Messy Bun (Flourish Island Breeze), at least once! It tastes like you are on a Hawaiian Beach!
  • Organic coffee beans mean low acid coffee. Now, full disclaimer, I am not a health professional or a licensed nutritionist or anything. I am basing this statement 100% on the fact that I usually have stomach issues after drinking really strong coffee. With Coffee Over Cardio, I have none of this! In fact, I feel my gut health has improved. I feel like if you’re someone who experiences stomach issues directly after drinking coffee, this might be a great solution for you too! Of course, everyone is different, so there are no guarantees with this, but it is definitely worth trying!
  • Long lasting coffee bags. As a barista babe, I am required to make one purchase per month, so I kind of have a revolving order on their coffee in place. However, I will say that two bags of Coffee Over Cardio lasted me two months! Pro-tip: I mix one scoop of dark roast with a flavored roast for optimal flavor and caffeine kick.
  • Eco-friendly for those Keurig fanatics. Well, mostly any coffee that you purchase in a bag is! But this is available in bag form, therefore forcing you to use reusable K-cups, cutting back on plastic waste.
