Los Angeles-based Buzz Lite is a start-up that makes lightly caffeinated coffee that contains about 10% caffeine, or 20 milligrams, per serving. Inspired by microdosing, the low-caffeine coffee kicked off as a pandemic project for Andrew Cooper, who says, "I realized there’s no brand owning low caffeination and trying to make this something cool, something interesting."
Buzz Lite Microdose Roast is made with sustainably sourced Colombian beans and an alternative to synthetic solvents to decaffeinate the coffee beans and the product is packaged in compostable pouches.
The low-caffeine coffee movement, driven by Millennials, appeals to coffee lovers who want to maintain familiar rituals without the undesirable side effects like the jitters or the post-coffee crash.
