Energy+Focus Coffee

Get yourself a potentially healthy mental boost with Energy+Focus


Unlike other coffees Energy+Focus Coffee infuses a potent blend of green tea, gotu kola and bacopa monnieri herbal extracts into their coffee to provide maximum health benefits. People all over the world are raving about how they feel after drinking Energy+Focus Coffee daily!

Green Tea originated in China and is made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant. It has been the subject of many scientific and medical studies and there is evidence that suggests regular green tea drinkers have lower chances of developing heart disease and some types of cancer. Green tea has powerful antioxidant properties and is high in flavonoids, both of which have very positive effects on health. Green tea may also have a positive effect on blood pressure, cholesterol and brain cells.

Bacopa Monnieri (also called Brahmi or Water Hyssop) is an Ayurvedic herb with a long and proven history of health benefits. It is said to enhance cognitive ability and is used to consecrate newborns in India to “open the gateway of intelligence.” Laboratory studies show it may improve memory and intellectual activity and it is also a powerful antioxidant which helps our bodies neutralize free radicals. Bacopa can also have a positive effect on anxiety.

Gotu Kola is a type of parsley and is a staple of Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine which use Gotu Kola to help heal skin conditions, treat asthma, fever, stomach ulcers and provide mental stimulation. Scientific and medical studies also suggest Gotu Kola can help boost the memory and has a positive effect on anxiety and depression.

Potential Health Benefits of Energy+Focus to Feel Better Now!  

Realize the (Nootropic) Power of Energy + Focus

The buzz word today is ‘nootropic’. But the benefits are centuries old. And the product – Energy + Focus coffee.

Nootropic refers to ‘any natural or synthetic substance that may have a positive impact on mental skills.’ DCC Members and Customers are more familiar with the herb that falls into this classification – Bacopa Monnieri. The Ayurvedic treasure, Bacopa Monneri, gives Energy + Focus its’ unparalleled mood and mental balance characteristics.

Bacopa Monnieri’s calming effect may also be attributed to its modulation of serotonin levels, which Bacopa Monnieri has been shown to regulate. Serotonin is the targeted neurotransmitter for the most successful anti-depressive agents. An imbalance (often too little) of this key neurotransmitter is believed to play a significant role in many mental illnesses, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Bacopa can make an excellent, natural anti-depressant and mood booster that lacks the horrible side effects of some pharmaceutical drugs.

Antidepressants also often increase the availability of dopamine in synapses, which is another neurotransmitter involved in regulating mood and motivation. Both dopamine and serotonin levels can decline with age, but Bacopa Monnieri may be able to mitigate this decline by protecting dopaminergic neurons from death.

So, remember the term – nootropic. Chances are you’ve seen it, or others reference it, and … now YOU know! For more studies on this powerful, ‘nootropic’ herb, click below:

(And, don’t forget, this fantastic nootropic herb can also be found in our one-of-a-kind, chocolatey delicious, KID-tested – Focus Fusion Cocoa! Mmmmm!)

This recent note from Kate is one of our favorites.

> Never…Will I Quit Drinking this Magical Goodness – Kate R.

“I fight for my life every single month. That’s dramatic, but just listen…

I suffer from something called PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder). The first 10-ish days of my month I’m a rock star. Playing and laughing with the kids, getting chores and errands done, feeling like a functional human being. I’m happy, I’m alive.

The rest of the month is like I’m drowning and can’t catch my breath. Rage, suicidal thoughts, separating myself from my life, wishing away all the good things, giving up on everything, extreme anxiety and depression. Then just like THAT, the storm passes, and the sun shines again.

Repeat, EVERY SINGLE month.

I’ve quit drinking the (Energy + Focus) coffee about 10x in the past few years. Trying a gazillion different other things–medication, diet changes, vitamins, drinks. I’ve tried it all. I keep coming back to this miracle coffee. Why? Because when I’m in my good days I don’t feel I need anything to be happy, then the bad days come, and I’d give just about anything for a smidge of happiness.

Let’s talk about today…

As I enter the WORST point in my cycle, I actually feel okay. I played with my toddler this morning. I organized my bathroom drawers. I feel motivated to continue to work towards my goals. I’m not trying to pick unnecessary fights with my husband. I feel calm, and not like a volcano seconds away from eruption with one little push.

This speaks volumes.

The only thing I changed was my coffee. Never, ever, EVER will I quit drinking this magical mood-enhancing goodness!” ~Kate R.

Here is just a few of the success stories about positive life changes happening for families from just changing their coffee now available to drink daily:

Hello, my name is Dorothy, I am 79 years old and a recent stroke survivor.  I suffer right side weakness as a result of the stroke and walk with the aid of a cane.  I am thankful to be able to get around but would get very tired and sleepy during the day and had no energy to do basic house keeping.

I was introduced to Energy+Focus Coffee and had remarkable results the very first day. I had so much energy that for the first time in many months I was able to mop the floor and do laundry that same day without feeling achy and totally worn out.  It also helped with memory recall as I did suffer lapses also as a result of the stroke.

Dorothy Dixon 1 I have been on Energy+Focus Coffee every since and added the Focus Fusion Cocoa as well.  I have the coffee every morning and the cocoa every evening.  I also notice better quality sleep at nights with my routine. These products are like my life blood and I never want to be without them as they have helped me so much in my recovery.  If this information can be of help to someone else so be it.

Thank you Dollar Coffee Club for providing such fantastic products to help people such as myself live a more productive life.

Dorothy D. Ft. Lauderdale, FL

Let this serve as a reminder that what you offer when you share Energy+Focus and FocusFusion Cocoa with others is so much more than a flavorful morning cup. Too many suffer everyday trying desperately to overcome ADD. Please allow this heartfelt note to offer hope that natural remedies do exist where you might last expect them …

“I am a Special Education Paraprofessional, full-time college student, wife, mommy, and competitive cheer mom. During the day I am responsible for helping little ones overcome obstacles physically, emotionally and mentally. All while I battle myself. At night I struggle, balancing bedtime stories and baths and term papers.

I am running non stop, and a few who know me know I have ADD and always have. It’s not something adults are supposed to admit to it have, something we should just ‘grow out of’. It is like having 10 browser windows open at once. All the time. Keeping your mind set on one thing is extremely difficult, because you’re always jumping to another thing. Doing everything, but finishing nothing.

My teacher friend gave me my first cup of Energy+Focus coffee, and it changed my mornings, my days, my personal strategies for completing my days effectively.

It is HUGE for me. My focus and my energy are on point, and I don’t feel like I’m constantly running in circles anymore. Anyone with an Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) would understand that is not something you think you’ll ever feel. Anxiety constantly. I am so excited to say that this isn’t my battle anymore!!!!! I cannot say with enough excitement how much I appreciate Energy+Focus.

I am finally in control of my day instead of my days controlling me. Being more organized and mentally clear have made me a better mommy and wife. That is huge to me, and means the world to my family who DESERVE the world, and deserve a mommy who effectively runs her household. I’m 4 months HAPPY with this new herbally infused Energy+Focus coffee. I didn’t want to take medication anymore as an adult, so finding a non-chemical dependent solution has been life changing. Thank you, and thank you Melissa for caring enough about me to give me my first cup of a new life!!” ~Kristin M.

Mother of four battles her way through ADHD and off prescription medication with Dollar Coffee Club’s coffee and cocoa.

Jece Gordon“I am currently 34, and I have struggled with ADHD my entire life. I have been on medications (Ritalin) since early middle school, as an adult I was put on Vyvanse for my ADHD. However, I did not want to be on medication.

I felt that a life without medication was never an option for me. I have been drinking Energy+Focus Coffee in the mornings and the FocusFusion Cocoa in the evenings, and at this time I am OFF of my ADHD medication completely and I am still functioning at full capacity. You do not understand how this has changed my life!!

Being a mother, it also worried me that one if not all four of my children might suffer from ADHD as well. With these products, now they do not need to be medicated!! They have a different chance, a different option than I ever did. Thank-you Dollar Coffee Club for everything!!” ~Jessi W.

Energy+Focus Coffee helps Emma fight depression and so much more!

“My name is Emma. I am a 22-year-old mum with a fabulous 2 year old son, Bailey.

EMMAs story 10295380_1555496744665735_5985252190860906717_o-200x200

I have suffered with depression and anxiety for nearly 5 years. It has always been a daily struggle to even get out of bed. I had no energy, feared the outside world and rarely ate. I soon developed anorexia too.

Becoming pregnant helped me turn my anorexia around, but I still struggled to get through my day. I had little to no focus, terrible memory and a lack of energy.

July 2014, I was introduced to a product I had never heard of, Dollar Coffee Club. I was the biggest skeptic and really didn’t believe that the member would be able to find products that I would love and that truly worked. I will point out, I visited my doctor at this point prior to commencing to ensure it would be safe to use with my medications. After a couple weeks of discussion, I gave it a trial.

To my disbelief, the Energy+Focus Coffee tasted great! Now, normally I would have two teaspoons of sugar in each and every coffee I had. With Dollar Coffee Club, I no longer needed it!

I ended up placing my order online before my trial pack had even run out. I was becoming addicted to the amazing flavor!

Three and a half weeks after beginning my trial pack, I had an appointment with my doctor that changed my life! I walked in there the same as I had any other week except this time; I was smiling and genuinely happy. Discussions with my doctor went as normal until he turned to me and said, “I have seen a huge difference in you over our last few appointments. You are happy, energetic and motivated. These last four and a half years have been a constant battle for you and this Energy+Focus Coffee has changed all of that! It is my professional recommendation that we now officially end your medication, you don’t need it!”

That discussion will forever ring clearly in my mind. That day was my fresh start! Now I am racing to get out the door each day even when it is raining. I run out of things to do each day rather than the energy or time to get them done. My smile is real and I am enjoying life again, MEDICATION FREE.

Along with all the benefits I had already seen with Energy+Focus Coffee, I had excess baby weight that wouldn’t shift. Luckily, the member I was purchasing with had a solution for that too, Burn+Control Coffee and Lean+Green Tea!

Yet again, I just started with a trial pack. The taste of these two products took me a few days to get used to but oh my gosh, it was working! The first week alone, I lost 1kg (2 lbs)!

Now, I had been sharing this coffee with all my friends and family, giving them samples and recommending them to contact the member who referred me to Dollar Coffee Club. The next thing I know, the member has contacted me. After discussion, I quickly signed as a member to be able to continue helping those around while earning myself an amazing, growing income and FREE products!

September saw me take part in a 30 day weight loss challenge. Over this time, I was drinking not only my Energy+Focus coffee but also 2-3 total sachets of Burn+Control and/or Lean+Green. I lost a massive 10.5kg (23lbs)! This was all done with regular walking and maintaining a healthy diet as well.

Since then I have been helping many people around the globe. I love being able to help people overcome or manage their ailments, lose weight, feel healthier and even to unlock an amazing income for themselves too!

My journey is still young, so I will keep updating this as I go. If you have any questions, want to try the products for yourself or hear more about joining the team then please follow the links in the top panel. This is definitely an opportunity that will change your life!”

Nothing makes us happier than reading stories from you about how Dollar Coffee Club has made a difference in your life. Here’s a pretty terrific one from Donna. Check it out…

11263062_911818492189647_4762803249699112193_n“I wanted to let you know how much the Energy+Focus Coffee has impacted my life. I have more clarity now than I have ever had. I can concentrate and pay attention to a conversation that I would otherwise lose interest in after about 3 minutes.

I made a comment to my husband the other day and asked him, ‘Is this how you are all the time? I have so much clarity and can think so much more clearly now.’ He just laughed. He has always told me that I have adult ADD, and when I see other people like me I understand their pain. Every day is a constant struggle for me. I have more lists than I can handle, scared to death I’ll miss yet another appointment.

After a month of having 1-2 cups a day of Energy+Focus, I can’t tell you how thankful I am that someone reached out to me and offered me some of this. I am hooked, and I am now trying to have my sister and my BFF in Colorado start taking this. I’m a stenographer, so ‘paying attention and listening’ is what I get paid to do. It is so much easier to concentrate now. As for socially, I actually feel like I can contribute more to a conversation with my friends and co-workers. It is crazy how this stuff works. Just wanted to let you know how much I love it.” ~Donna

The phase “Changing Lives” aren’t just words to us. They fill us with purpose, ground us in a mission and offer us a mantra every day to go out into the world and share Dollar Coffee Club with others. You never know who needs what you have to offer. Who might be suffering in silence. It only takes a second to click “share” but the hope you can offer is endless. Consider this heartfelt, inspiring note from Misty…

“My name is Misty Tharp and I’m a wife and mother of 2 little girls. When my last baby was born I suffered with Postpartum Depression. She is now 4 years old and over the last 4 years the depression has cycled and ruled my life. I’ve tried everything under the sun to fix myself and never felt normal or like “me.” In June of this year I started drinking both kinds of coffee.

Misty TI immediately noticed I had more energy, which I needed, but within a few days I felt more balanced. I felt like I had mental clarity and ZERO brain fog.

I was getting out of bed and doing the things that needed to be done AND feeling alert. I FEEL like my old self. I was certain I’d have to battle depression for the rest of my life. Since drinking my daily cup of coffee, I no longer have any symptoms of depression. I’m so thankful and blessed. I finally have my life back” ~Misty T.

Effect of Bacopa Monnieri on Cognitive Functions in Alzheimer’s Disease Patients


Background: Alzheimer’s disease is a degenerative condition mostly affecting the elderly. It significantly affects the patient’s quality of life. So far there is no proven effective therapeutic intervention for such patients. Bacopa monnieri is an indigenous plant which is found throughout India. It has been referred in Ayurveda since centuries as a “Medhya Rasayan” (nootropic).

Studies have shown various effects of Bacopa monnieri among which is its inhibitory effect on the enzyme cholinesterase. This can result in decrease in the breakdown of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter whose decreased levels are seen in Alzheimer’s disease.

Aims & Objectives:

We conducted this study to evaluate the effect of Bacopa monnieri on cognitive functions in Alzheimer’s disease patients.

Study Design:

This was an open label, prospective, uncontrolled, non-randomized trial. Study population included all newly diagnosed patients of Alzheimer’s disease in the Psychiatry Outdoor Patient Department between 60-65 years of age. Baseline scores on Mini Mental State Examination Scale (MMSES) were recorded for all patients. Subsequently all patients took 300 mg of Bacopa monnieri standardized extract (Bacognize®) orally twice a day for 6 months. MMSES scores were recorded again after the completion of study drug.


Mean age of 39 patients who completed the study was 65.23 years. Study patients showed statistically significant improvements in various components of MMSES including orientation of time, place & person, attention and in their language component in terms of reading, writing & comprehension at the end of trial. The patients involved in this trial also reported improvement in their quality of life, and decrease in the irritability and insomnia.


The results of our clinical trial show that Bacopa monnieri standardized extract (Bacognize® 300 mg twice a day orally) for 6 months results in improvement in some aspects of cognitive functions in geriatric patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. While the above results are encouraging given the improvement in cognitive functions in geriatric Alzheimer’s disease patients, further studies that include a control group are required to validate these results.

Diagnosed with ADD / ADHD?

“My husband, Jóseth, has severe adult ADD/ADHD.  So severe, we almost thought he would need to go on disability for it.


When it was real bad, he wouldn’t be able to decide what he wanted to eat off a menu, he would drive through stop signs and lights, he just could not function.  He had difficulty keeping a steady job and really could not be depended on in that way.

We tried everything to help him.  Pharmaceuticals made him not eat at all. We changed diet, did all kinds of detoxing and supplements, even through all of that, he was struggling, barely keeping his head above water.  We could have no warning when he would derail.  He was so frustrated that the everyday things were so difficult for him.  I did not know if our marriage would make it.

Coffee was one of those things that made it worse, we tried every top organic coffee out there, and he just had to give it up for his safety and our family’s safety.  He was so sad to not be allowed coffee.

A friend told us about Dollar Coffee Club’s Energy+Focus and so we ordered a box.  Jóseth seemed to not derail on it, so we had him stay on it. He said it felt like part of his brain came on and was a live again.  So we had him stay on it.

Within just a few months, he went from a struggling as an average employee at work, to being number one.  Last month, he achieved his monthly quota before the first week of the month was over.  He also recently achieved something he has never achieved in all of our marriage, and that is holding down a job for a year straight.  He’s winning all these awards at work, he’s also up for a promotion in a few months.  His co-workers are asking him, how are you doing all this?  And he just says, it’s my Energy+Focus.  Do you want any?

Well, a few weeks ago, we actually ran out of the Energy+Focus for a whole week and he just completely unraveled in a week’s time.  It was bad.  Sometimes you don’t realize how much something is helping until you run out. He got back on it and went right back to his beautiful self.

If you had told me his salvation would come in a coffee, I would have LAUGHED at you.  But Dollar Coffee Club’s coffee is changing our lives.  It has saved our marriage.  It has given me my beautiful husband I knew was trapped in there somewhere.

We have a deal now, that for the sake of the entire family, we won’t ever run low on Energy+Focus coffee every again.  It is amazing that something so simple has transformed an entire family, a marriage.  I thank God every day for bringing Energy+Focus into our lives.

“My son was diagnosed with ADHD and a learning disability at age of 5. He is now 10. The everyday struggles of a parent from homework to almost EVERY minute calling out his name, telling him to ‘please calm down’, ‘please don’t do that’, and ‘please be quiet’ are already part of our daily lives.

Checkout this incredible note from a very proud mom regarding her daughter Laci Lee who’s ready to take on life and junior high thanks in part to her morning cup of Energy+Focus.

“My daughter Laci Lee was diagnosed with ADD in May 2012 @ the age of 10. She has struggled her whole life in school. She never could grasp anything that the other kids could. We had numerous test done but they never found anything wrong, because she was quiet and not loud and crazy. Doctors started her on prescription meds, as while it seemed Krystal dto work for a bit, she started to zone out again. The more they increased the meds the more she turned into a walking zombie not to mention she had no appetite. I really didn’t like what it was doing to her AND she had NO AMBITION for life.

Summer 2013, I completely took her off the meds and figured we just needed to learn to deal with it. October 18, 2013…Laci had her 1st 1/2 cup of Energy+Focus 3 times a week. I remember the first day: she came home from school went straight into her room (wasn’t told), did her homework (3 pages) and was done in like 2 hours, which normally took her 5 hours.

As the week went by, I would ask her “did you get you homework done?” (it was always a chore) and she would respond so proudly “yes mom.” I was shocked and in disbelief and she would show me, and it was done, complete and correct.

Now she is off to junior high and I knew she was going to be ok, she is ready now to move on and grab life by the horns. Laci has become so strong, independent, responsible, confident and secure in who she is.” ~Krystal D

Reserve suicides up 23 percent — active-duty count remains steady
Military Times 5:22 p.m. EDT April 4, 2016 Patricia Kime

The number of active-duty personnel who died by suicide in 2015 declined slightly from 2014, but the reserve component, including the National Guard, saw a 23 percent increase, according to Pentagon data released Friday.

The Defense Department’s fourth-quarter suicide report for 2015 said 266 active-duty service members committed suicide in 2015,  down from 273 in 2014.

The number of Reserve component members who died by suicide — including those from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps reserves as well as Air and Army National Guard troops — rose to 209 from a four-year low of 170 in 2014.

Figures for the active component have remained relatively steady since peaking at 321 in 2012, but they are nearly double the number before the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

In-depth analyses of military suicides and attempts in a calendar year are issued annually by the Defense Department.  The 2014 Department of Defense Suicide Event Report, which examined the rate of suicide in the services, demographic trends including age, gender, rank and marital status, as well as known or suspected causes of suicide behavior, was released in January 2016.


Energy+Focus Herb Bacopa Monnieri Considered Future Candidate for Chronic Pain Management

FB LI 051415

Coffee can help ease chronic pain? 

It can if it’s infused with Ayurvedic herb Bacopa Monnieri.

Chronic pain management costs billions of dollars in medical exchequer to the world population. Additionally, 77% of people with chronic pains also have a degree of medically treatable depression. Bacopa monnieri, a renowned ayurvedic medicine has a strong antidepressant effect and significant anti-nociceptive effect, which is comparable to the effect of morphine via adenosinergic, opioidergic, and adrenergic mechanisms. BM has been also reported to be effective in neuropathic pains. Additionally, it has a strong anti-inflammatory effect mediated via COX-2 inhibitory mechanism.

Apart from its effect of augmenting morphine analgesia, BM also inhibits opioid-withdrawal induced hyperalgesia, and acquisition and expression of morphine tolerance. BM is reported to have a strong protective effect against toxic effects of opiates on major organs like brain, kidneys and heart. BM is well documented to be safe and well tolerated herbal therapy in multiple clinical trials including various age groups. This mini review evaluated the preclinical data that highlights potential of BM as a future candidate for clinical management of chronic pains.
