Mix Espresso And Coke For The Ultimate Afternoon Pick-Me-Up

The best, most grown-up way to “have energy” is to get enough sleep, eat food that grows out of the ground, and exercise (which I swear I do, mum).

Yes, the blend of coffee and coke may cause you to vibrate in a slightly unpleasant manner, but according to the creators of this beautiful union (Mike Haft and Harrison Suarez of Compass Coffee), that’s the goal. “It’s for those times when you really need to get stuff done,” Haft told Bon Appetit.
