As a long time coffee lover, I've had my share of sampling different types of coffee from all around the world. But for all that coffee drinking, I had never tried a coffee shot before. For whatever reason, I never considered myself a “coffee shot” type of coffee lover. So when I came across Forto Coffee Shots, which is branded as the #1 organic coffee shot, I was immediately interested just off of the claim alone. I went out and purchased a pack of these organic coffee shots with the aim of seeing whether it'd be something that I'd incorporate into my daily coffee routine. Check out the following Forto Coffee Shot review to see whether this coffee product lives up to its title.
The essence behind the “coffee shot” is that it offers the convenience of “instant energy”. It's designed for coffee lovers on the go but can obviously be used by anyone just looking for an energy boost. Each Forto shot contains either 100mg or 200mg of caffeine giving you a surge of energy within seconds of drinking it. On a side note, it's commonly asked how much caffeine is in a cup of coffee. An 8oz cup of coffee is estimated to have anywhere between 95-200 milligrams of caffeine. It appears that Forto has tailored its offerings accordingly. For this Forto Coffee Shot review, I drank the 100mg shot which has the equivalent caffeine content as one cup of coffee. Accordingly, the 200mg shot is equal to two cups of coffee.
Forto Coffee Review
Let's Talk Energy
I drank my first Forto Coffee shot one night when I knew I'd be driving in the wee hours. I was already feeling sleeping so it was actually the perfect time to test the efficacy of this organic coffee shot. Within less than 30 seconds of drinking it, I could feel a surge of extra energy and alertness flow through my body. I felt very alert yet at ease which to many may seem contradictory. I'd describe this as “clean” energy which is made possible given that the shot is certified USDA organic. It's like having the burst of energy you're looking for without all of the unwanted side effects such as the jitters and headaches. The drive that night was smooth sailing and I didn't have to fight sleepiness. The biggest surprise for me was that amidst feeling very focused, I also felt extremely relaxed. From an effectiveness standpoint, Forto Coffee delivers in full.
One could argue that given the importance of flavor, I should have started this Forto Coffee Shot review with talking about how it tastes. To compare the flavor of a coffee shot to a regular 10-12oz cup of coffee would be in my opinion one of those apples to oranges scenarios. The Forto Coffee shot is designed as a highly potent and concentrated drink and so the flavor will be strong. Having said that, I enjoyed its flavor. It's sweet, strong, and poignant which are three qualities that I'd expect in a coffee shot of this caliber. Remember, this is a shot and so it's meant to be “strong”. For those who prefer a milder-tasting shot, there's always the option to dilute it with some ice or water. And for those who prefer their coffee without sugar or cream, Forto Coffee offers a pure black shot as well. While I've only tried the Hershey's Latte flavor, Forto Coffee offers a variety of options to choose from.
Let's Talk Convenience
The Forto Shot can be drank straight or added to another drink. I use a Vitamix regularly to make my morning health shakes and plan to add this coffee shot to my concoction sometime soon. Of course, how good it tastes will depend on what ingredients you use in your shake to begin with.
To me, the idea of waking up and conveniently grabbing a coffee shot out of the fridge is new but very appealing. Forto Coffee Shots give you easy access to quick but sustained energy. Having these nifty compact containers of energy and fuel is like having an “ace up your sleeve” for whenever you battle sluggishness or sleepiness. Another reason this coffee shot is so convenient is because you don't need water to make it! While that may seem like an obvious one, it's a game changer for folks who don't always access to water, much less “hot” water. This makes the Forto Coffee shot a very travel-friendly alternative to a hot cup of coffee. The packaging of the Forto Coffee Shot is such that it can easily fit into a coat pocket and used at your convenience.
In concluding this Forto Coffee Shot review, I can say that it lives up to its reputation as one of the best organic coffee shots on the market. It's worth mentioning that it may be a tad strong for folks who aren't big on sweetness. But then again, that's why have other options available. Its fast-acting nature combined with its very enjoyable taste has opened my eyes and treated my taste buds to a whole new experience.
