And this is how your brain makes you feel on Jamaica Mountain Blue Coffee.

A recent Japanese study showed how our brain can be tricked simply by smelling coffee.

For example, smelling Guatemalan & Jamaica Mountain Blue coffee brought on relaxed feelings among the study participants, whereas Kona and Sumatra coffees resulted in increased mental focus.

BUT WHY?

Great question. The study suggests that "it's all about the waves, man!"

Brain waves, specifically Alpha Waves, are spiked when a person is relaxed. To prove their theory, the scientists asked participants to smell different types of coffee and monitored their brain wave activity.

Duh, simple right? Just hook the thing to thing and bam, brain waves. 

Okay, way more science went into this study, but the result seems pretty straight-forward.

Want to have a relaxed coffee buzz opt for a dark roast, like Jamaica or Guatemalan coffee.

Want to get focused? Grab the medium roast; like a Kona or Sumatra coffee.
