How will Exhale make me feel?
Rather than answer this ourselves here are what other customers feel after drinking Exhale (all verified Trust Pilot reviews):

Is it instant coffee?
No, it needs brewing in something like a cafetiere, AeroPress, espresso machine or dripper etc.
It's well worth the effort though because it's healthier and more delicious!
Check out the merch section of our website for our Team Exhale approved kit.
Instant coffee has been linked to some nasty diseases and has 4 times the amount of mould / mycotoxins on average! Read our article reviewing the latest research.
Is Exhale coffee mould and mycotoxin free?
It is indeed. We test every shipment of our coffee at an independent lab for pesticides, mould, yeasts, mycotoxins and heavy metals to verify the coffees absolute purity.
It is then stored in GrainPro ultra-hermetic sealed bags in a temperature controlled environment.
Most supermarket bought coffees were roasted and ground months before you buy them leaving them likely to stale and open to contamination. All our coffee is roasted fresh weekly to make sure you’re drinking the freshest, cleanest possible brew.
If you want to know more, read our article on why you should avoid mycotoxins and learn how they're a bigger issue than you may think in coffee.
How can coffee be healthy?
Coffee comes from a fruit and like any other fruit is packed full of naturally healthy compounds. The most beneficial being polyphenols such as chlorogenic acid.
Through over roasting and poor handling these compounds are often significantly reduced in other coffees. Studies show up to a 31-fold difference between some cups of coffee!
During our unique process we sourced a bean naturally high in the healthiest compounds and roasted in a way that locks in as much of them as possible.
We also keep out the bad and our organic coffee also independently tested to be free from moulds, mycotoxins, pesticides and other nasties.
Do you add anything to Exhale coffee to make it healthy?
No we don't, because we don't need to!
A good quality coffee that's been treated right is as healthy as any other 'superfood' on the planet.
There's a modern trend towards taking poor quality ingredients (such as instant coffee, read our blog on that here) and adding whatever the latest fad, on-trend superfood is to make it 'healthy' again.
We instead took the care to (obsessively) look after every stage from farm to cup and work with the wonderful things naturally in our coffee already.
It definitely wasn't the easiest option, but it's the best one for you and the planet and that's what matters to us. 😁
Can I get health benefits from all coffees?
Yes you can, but multiple studies show the quantity of the healthiest compounds vary immensely from coffee to coffee.
In 2014 one study tested 104 espressos from cafes in Scotland, Italy and Spain and found a 31 fold difference between the highest and lowest concentrations of coffee's healthiest compound!
Coffee makes me anxious / jittery, will Exhale be better?
It should... One study shows that polyphenols counteract the negative effects of caffeine, reducing anxiousness. So a high polyphenol coffee like Exhale should reduce the jittery effects from caffeine.
This has been confirmed by lots of our customers who have reported this (just search for jitters or anxious in our Trust Pilot reviews).
However, everyone is unique so it’s impossible to say for certain how you will react. And if you're really worried then we also do a cracking decaf.
I’d love to know how you get on so please drop me an email on email@example.com if you do try it.
Will Exhale coffee make me perform better?
Yes. It's true.
Caffeine is one of the few scientifically proven 'ergogenic aids to performance'. Meaning it will help you preform better, on average 11-12% better according to 2x meta-analyses!
However, unlike other coffees, Exhale coffee is also high in polyphenols which studies have shown can improve both sprint and endurance performance.
So in Exhale coffee the caffeine and polyphenols work synergistically to give you a double performance boost! Win win!!
For more, read our blog on how to use coffee to set a new PB.
Is decaf as healthy?
Most of the health benefits are the same across the caffeinated and decaf versions, with only a minor magnification of effects in some areas due to the ‘entourage effect’. So you’re still onto a winner with the decaf.
The areas where decaf isn't as protective are broadly:
- Liver health. Coffee is very protectiive of the liver. Those effects are more pronounced in regular coffee.
- Cognitive health. Especially age-related cognitive benefits are slightly less pronounced in decaf.
I wouldn’t worry though, if you’re not a fan of caffeine (or it's not a fan of you!), the decaf is still packed full of antioxidants and polyphenols so is hugely beneficial.
Is Exhale coffee as healthy for the planet as it is for people?
We try our best to make sure it is.
Health, taste AND sustainability were genuinely equally prioritised at every stage of our process. Whcih was recognised by our B Corp certification.
So technically there could be a healthier coffee out there (shhh!) but perhaps it didn't pay a fair price to the farmer, or was grown with polluting, non-organic pesticides, in which case we wouldn't touch it.
