Does coffee actually dehydrate you? Popular myth turns out to be a load of shite.

We aren't that "it's too hot" person, honest.
Anyway, you want to be energised and hydrated for performance don't you?
"Coffee dehydrates you doesn't it"
Well, Susan, you're an idiot. Here's what the Mayoclinic say:
"Drinking caffeine-containing beverages as part of a normal lifestyle doesn't cause fluid loss in excess of the volume ingested. While caffeinated drinks may have a mild diuretic effect — meaning that they may cause the need to urinate — they don't appear to increase the risk of dehydration."
Basically put, you can drink Extreme Bean to stay energised and hydrated - perfect.
Too hot for coffee?
You may have seen cold brew and thought "too much hard work" - so try this instead.
- Night before: Brew Extreme Bean coffee - We recommend Rush to make the most of its natural sweetness and toffee flavours
- Pour coffee into ice cube trays, cool and freeze
- Pour remainder into Extreme Travel mug and leave in the fridge overnight
- Next day, add the cubes to your Extreme Travel mug and hit the road. You're coffee will keep cool due to the thermal properties of your Extreme Travel mug, and helped by the ice cubes
- Alternative idea: Use double the coffee you usually would, freeze as above as allow to melt in Extreme Travel mug en route to work/gym. Ice cold coffee on the move.
