Rob and Alana - Smart Coffee NZ Founders
Smart Coffee NZ was founded in 2018 when Rob and Alana discovered the amazingness that is Kimera Koffee. They recognised and wanted for themselves the benefits of this brain and athletic enhancing coffee so became the very proud NZ Distributors!
I have been in the fitness industry for 20 years, and am the Founder of Rapid CrossFit in Mt Eden. With a prior career in the hospitality industry as a chef, being involved with food and fitness has always been a part of my life. So now having a product that is coffee infused with cognitive enhancers is a 'no brainer' for me. No pun intended:-)
The advantages of our coffee feels unparalleled to anything else used to assist in training. Offering increased drive and clarity with training without any side effects of coffee, such as the jitters or effects you would get from 'marketplace' pre workouts.
A big plus for me is knowing that I am getting added benefit specific to brain function and anti-aging of the brain. Having lost my mother to dementia and alzheimers the potential benefits aiding in the prevention of these diseases is definitely something that is never far from my mind.
I have always been a big coffee drinker and taste is extremely important to me. Being able to offer all of the health benefits in a great tasting high quality coffee is something I am pretty stoked about!
I have had varied experience with sport and fitness! Being actively involved in sport and weight training for as long as I can remember. I have been convinced by Rob however that CrossFit is the best form of training! I tend to now agree:-)
I have a passion for holistic health and wellness which has increased with overtime and am now pursuing study in Holistic Performance Nutrition. It is a big change from my Accounting and IT background!
My passion has increased since making a life changing decision to fuel my body with a Keto lifestyle and having such incredible results holistically I am driven to help others achieve the same all round results... mind.... body..... and soul.
My desire to find out more about Kimera Koffee and the benefits of nootropic coffee was led by the potential benefits of amino acids on mental health.
With a history of depression in my 20's and being medicated for 10 years I moved to natural healing in my early 30's and had great success with using Taurine for anxiety. My use of Kimera Koffee has meant that I no longer need to take any other supplements to aid with mental health and I am a strong advocate for the benefits that amino acids can provide. I enjoy the balanced mood and energy that I experience and am also stoked with the added benefits of enhanced athletic performance. I truly believe that our nootropic coffee has added in my strength and endurance with CrossFit and am enjoying regular gains and goal attainment!
