Years ago when I was in college, I used to sip coffee late at night to help me fall asleep. While my dorm mates sipped on hot cocoa or tea, I for some reason always liked to drink regular caffeinated coffee. I don’t know if it was the actual coffee that made me drowsy, or the fact that I was probably exhausted from all my classes, but I have always wondered what was up with that. Seemed like an interesting idea… maybe one day someone was going to make a coffee for bedtime.
Well, someone must have been creepily watching me sleep because… TADA…!
Enter Counting Sheep Coffee.
Yep. Sleepy time coffee is now a thing. Is it any good? I have no idea. I haven’t tried it… yet. It’s worth a go… at least to see if it’s worth replacing my regular nighttime cuppa jolt. The stuff is not available at your local Starbucks… but you can probably find it at places like Bed Bath and Beyond (yeah, it’s that kind of product) or Amazon. It retails for $12 bucks.
The Vancouver based company was featured on Dragon’s Den (a Canadian version of Shark Tank) last year, and they claim that women tend to drink coffee to help them relax. Huh? So, I guess that explains my urge to grab a cup at nights.
To knock you out, the coffee has Swiss Water® and a blend of decaffeinated coffee and organic valerian root (natural herbal sedative). Cute names like “40 Winks” and “Lights Out” offer varying intensities. I don’t think it’s quite meant for people with sleeping disorders… just weirdos like me who like to drink coffee at night.
