BEANS WITHOUT THE BURN:

Golden Ratio takes everything you love about a cup of coffee and makes it better. We roast our coffee beans at lower temperatures to create a smooth “tea-like” coffee to naturally perk up any coffee drinker's day. Golden Ratio is a healthy alternative to dark roast coffee which is bad for your teeth and gut.

WHAT MAKES IT DIFFERENT

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS: ENJOY HOT OR COLD

Hot Brew

  1. Pour 8oz of boiling water over one Golden Ratio coffee pouch in a mug.
  2. Steep for 5-10 minutes (longer = stronger).
  3. Enjoy black (we call it "gold") or with your favorite add-ins, like steamed milk to make a golden latte.

Cold Brew

  1. Submerge one Golden Ratio coffee pouch in 8oz of water. If batching in a pitcher, add one pouch for every 8oz of water added.
  2. Refrigerate for 12-18 hours (longer = stronger). We recommend letting it steep while you sleep!
  3. Remove coffee pouch, add ice and enjoy black or with your favorite add-ins. For optimal freshness and flavor, drink within 48 hours of brewing and discard any remaining cold brew after 7 days.

    Wish it was organic...

    I found this as I'm trying to wean off of espresso. I love iced americanos but I don't want headaches when I don't have espresso everyday. This seemed like a happy-medium that would help me curve my cravings. I love hot tea, and this is like tea that tastes like coffee, and no bitter taste like coffee, it's VERY smooth and easy to drink, with less caffeine than espresso. I likely won't purchase again because I realized after the fact that it's NOT organic. I would pay more for an organic option.

    Triply good

    This is the only coffee I’ve ever had that is delicious, gentle on my digestive system and contains the right amount of caffeine to jump start my day.

    sweet satisfying sipping

    I really low sipping my Golden Ratio coffee. It is satisfying and has a slight chocolatey sweetness with a touch of the bitter that we coffee drinkers love. I definitely recommend this product.

    Not a permanent replacement

    I appreciate what Golden Ratio is doing. Unfortunately, I can’t see myself switching to this permanently. It tastes like a weak coffee/tea and I hate tea. But I will continue to purchase because it can be enjoyable at times and I support small businesses.

    Golden Ratio Coffee

    Very smooth taste - would recommend!

    Have questions? We have answers

    +What is Golden Ratio?
    Golden Ratio is a low acid, lighter tasting alternative to traditional black coffee. Our "gold roasted" coffee beans are roasted at lower temperatures to create a smooth tea-like coffee, gold in color, with no loss of caffeine!
    +How does your 30-day money-back guarantee work?
    If you are dissatisfied with your order in any way, you can get a full refund no questions asked. Just email us at support@drinkgoldenratio.com and we'll take care of you.
    +Is it organic?
    Our our premium shade grown coffee does not have a certification. Getting organic certified often comes at too high of a cost for independent farmers.
    +How much caffeine is gold coffee?
    Golden Ratio coffee has about 100 mg of caffeine per 8 oz serving.
    +What does gold coffee taste like?
    Gold coffee has been described as both “tea for coffee people” and “coffee for tea people.” It’s lighter than black coffee with no bitterness, and tastes like a wonderfully rich tea with a hint of coffee.
    +You say gold coffee is 5x less acidic. What is that in comparison to?
    Golden Ratio tests at a pH of 6 (similar to earl grey tea), whereas most other coffees test closer to 5 (more acidic). pH is measured on a logarithmic scale, which means one point higher is actually 10x greater, but we say 5x because occasionally the difference in pH between gold coffee and regular coffee is less than a point.

    When you drink Golden Ratio, you immediately taste the difference in acidity with regular coffee. Gold coffee goes down incredibly smooth with no astringent feeling in your mouth and throat.
    +Do you have decaf?
    At this time we don’t offer a decaf option, but we may add one in the future.
    +Where are your coffee beans sourced from?
    Golden Ratio gets its coffee beans from our roasters, who source from independent farms in Nicaragua, Brazil, and Ethiopia.
    +How do I know that the coffee I'm buying from Golden Ratio is fresh?
    Golden Ratio nitro-flushes and heat seals each bag to ensure freshness for up to 12 months.
