Coffee is an integral part of many people’s daily routine, like taking a shower or breakfast! My passion for coffee has grown considerably since being involved in professional sport. Whether it be that morning Americano with my family, or the quick Espresso shot to fire me up before training or the Flat White when reuniting with friends.
Coffee and the act that surrounds it, forges new relationships and strengthens allegiances amongst the closest of team mates. Whatever walk of life, you are from, I’m almost certain you have heard someone say, “let’s catch up for a coffee!”
So for us at Tiki Tonga Coffee Roasters we think about coffee in two very different but just as important ways.
Firstly, bringing people together, it’s about, “That Feeling”, the love and the togetherness!
And secondly we aim to utilise the benefits of caffeine to us as sportsmen. Having witnessed numerous trends and fads in dietary advice. One thing has remained constant… Coffee. Completely natural, no additives, free from the preservatives and sugary contents of most sports drinks!
At Tiki Tonga Coffee it is our aim to produce the best coffee for active people. We have been working hard in the roasters producing specialist blends to be the fuel for all athlete’s superpowers.
We all know life has its ups and downs, let Tiki Tonga Coffee be there for both!

Tiki Tonga Coffee will! It tastes so good everyone will want to join you. As Tiki Tonga brings people together.
Coffee and it’s caffeine content enables our bodies to access the energy our body stores as fats much earlier in our exercise cycle. This enables you to exercise for longer before you hit the wall!
An espresso shot approximately 45 mins before training would be the optimum time. However, you will feel the first effects within a few minutes especially if you have not had one for a while.
Everything always in moderation and as part of a balanced diet. More coffee doesn’t necessarily mean more performance and in fact you can build up a tolerance to the effects of coffee if you drink too much. Whilst we would drink coffee all day, we at Tiki Tonga promote responsible consumption.
For longer than most people can train hard for – over 2 hours… If you can train hard for longer than that, you will already know how to fuel your body. Coffee should be part of your regime not all of your regime.
Typically Robusta blends have a higher caffeine content, therefore our Blend No2 and Blend No8 pack the bigger caffeine hits. An Espresso is going to yield much more caffeine per gram than a flat white or a cappuccino because it is more concentrated, however, it is important that you enjoy your coffee and that comes down to the flavour, and at Tiki Tonga our 4 core blends have a taste to suit everyone.
No… coffee is just to boost your energy and pick you out of your slump.. the rest is all up to you.
