Got Your Six Coffee Co. (GY6CC)

Got Your Six Coffee Co. (GY6CC) is passionate about helping veterans and others who put their lives on the line everyday to serve and protect us. Because of that a portion of all the profits from Got Your Six Coffee go to our non-profit, GY6 Foundation which has a primary mission to ‘serve those who serve’. Veteran homelessness, veteran suicides, and the daily struggles that veterans, LEO’s, EMT’s and Fire Fighters have with respect to PTSD needs to be addressed and we intend to lend a hand with that… 8 of them to be exact. That is exactly why we have an octopus as part of our logo because we are lending a hand, or arm in this case, to members of the Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy, Marine Corp, Law Enforment, Emergency Medical Technicians and those in the Fire Fighting community.

Coffee as an aphrodisiac? You just made my day!!

Turn on the romance with your favorite cup of coffee this Valentine’s Day? Yes, you read that right, coffee is one way to ramp up your love life. We all know that coffee is a stimulant, but the news that it is considered an aphrodisiac may be surprising to some.

While coffee is the world’s primary source of caffeine, it also increases the production of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is what makes people feel pleasure, heightens senses and heightened movements, and it helps us feel “happy”. Coffee is a natural high AND it is the only legal “drug” in the United States that does all of the above!

What is an aphrodisiac you ask?

An aphrodisiac is something that increases sexual desire. Most people think of oysters, or maybe even chocolate as being an aphrodisiac. But coffee!?!? That may be new to you. There are Legends out there that state that coffee was used as an aphrodisiac, as husbands kept their wives well supplied in coffee. Think about that for a moment… do ensure that your spouse has an endless supply of coffee? Do they ensure that YOU never run out? 

Coffee has been considered an aphrodisiac for years in many cultures, but there hasn’t been much “scientific” proof of its success. We think that probably because scientists know instinctively the outcome. Why prove something when you know it already works? The effects of caffeine and the desired outcome of aphrodisiac are very similar. Caffeine’s stimulation has the same appearance of sexual stimulation.

What is it about coffee?

Well, there are several things about coffee that make us happy. For one, in a study by De Longhi, coffee was second on the list of aromas that aroused women. Trust us guys! If you bring your woman a freshly brewed cup of Got Your Six coffee, she will be turned on. Studies also showed that their heart rate  increases around that fantastic cup of coffee.

You know that we, here at Got Your Six Coffee Company, love coffee. We also love its side effects. It makes us feel great on several levels and it makes us feel sexy. Who doesn’t think that their loved one presenting a freshly brewed gourmet cup of coffee in the morning isn’t sexy?? We don’t even really care if it is “scientifically” an aphrodisiac or not. We just love it, we love what it does for us, for others and we love those who drink it!

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!!
