If you are a regular follower of my Instagram Stories, you pretty much know by now that my love of coffee runs deep. Whether it’s from my local Starbucks or my favorite little neighborhood café, you’re sure to see me heading out for that cup of joe first thing in the morning.
So, when Café 504, a mineral-infused coffee brand based in Texas, introduced themselves to me, I was eager to give their unique creation a try. As an avid coffee aficionado (if I dare say so myself), I’ve tried lots of different coffee brands from mild to strong and organic to fair trade. But a mineral infused coffee? This was a first!
While I set off in full research mode to find out exactly what mineral infused coffee even was, I came across how the brand gives back, which truly resonated with me. Café 504 has partnered with World Vision so that every bag of coffee will provide lasting economic opportunity and 100 gallons of clean water to the people who grow it. With such an altruistic mission attached to the brand, I knew I needed to actually try their coffee.
Okay, so you probably want to know more about what the heck mineral infused coffee even is, right? I got you. Have you ever wondered why your coffee from a fancy coffee house, well, just tastes so much better than when you brew your own at home? I certainly have. It seems, those upscale coffee shops invest in equipment to add minerals to their water to improve the taste. Who knew? Café 504 set off to create the perfect cup of coffee and in doing so, mixed the same minerals you might find in premium water, directly with the coffee beans for the same great taste. Which means, you can now brew café-inspired coffee right in your very own kitchen.
Café 504 made ordering my coffee a breeze. Simply head over to their website, type in your zip code, select the type of water you use when you make your coffee, the coffee format you prefer (whole bean, ground, or K-Cups), how you like your coffee (light-medium, medium-dark, dark), and then Café 504 selects the perfect blend for you—even taking into account the mineral quality of the water in your zip code— based on the criteria you outlined. I went with the light-medium coffee in a K-Cup, as that’s easier to tote along to the office or bring with me when I travel, and voilà, a 24-count of The Alpha Mineral Blend Coffee arrived on my doorstep a few days later.
I couldn’t wait to brew my new coffee from Café 504 and see for myself if mineral infused coffee really tasted better. I can honestly say that after just a few sips, I could taste a noticeable difference. The coffee was much smoother and richer than my normal morning coffee and actually tasted less acidic. I brewed it both as a hot cup of coffee and also brewed a whole bunch of the K-Cups so that I could cool it and have it over ice (you have to love iced coffee in the summer, am I right?). The Café 504 iced coffee quickly became my new favorite morning brew. I even brewed some for my office and can report that my co-workers were as impressed with the flavor of the coffee as I was and are now mineral infused converts.
Who would have thought that mineral infused coffee could make such a discernible difference? Well, I’m here to tell you that it does. Not only did I enjoy the smooth taste of The Alpha Mineral Blend, but I love that Café 504 believes in giving back. And that certainly makes me want to drink more coffee (as if I needed an excuse).
