In fact, we love coffee so much we’ve designed a coffee with a natural sedative to end your day as well. In a world that doesn’t get enough sleep, it’s important to slow down and relax before bedtime. And we can’t think of a better way to do that than with a cup of Counting Sheep.
The perfect way to start your day is now the perfect way to end it.
Founded in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2013, we are now a fast growing company.
About Lights Out! Coffee:
Coffee to have before bed? That’s right, Counting Sheep Coffee is a proprietary blend of gourmet decaffeinated coffee and a natural herbal sedative to help you get a good night’s sleep. For so many, the thought of drinking coffee after lunchtime is a pipedream. With Counting Sheep, not only do you not have to worry about being kept up, you can enjoy that delicious cup of coffee with dessert or just before bed and have it help you drift off and get a restful night of shut-eye. With Lights Out! you get a great tasting coffee with extra valerian root added. And it tastes just as delicious as that first cup in the morning…… The perfect way to start your day is now the perfect way to end it!
As of lately, my mother has really been looking for a coffee that she can drink later in the evening, without worrying caffeine keeping her awake. She has never really been into decaf because she says it has a funny taste and it still kept her awake. Searching around online, I came across a ton of decaf coffee’s, but I was after something different. Eventually, I came across Counting Sheep Coffee and was intrigued with the company and the coffees that they sell. Yes, their coffees are “decaf”, however, they contain valerian root, which is a natural “sedative”. So, you can drink this coffee shortly before bed, go to sleep without worrying about staying awake forever, as you have a sedative, which will help you to fall asleep easier and quicker. When the company agreed to send me their Lights Out! version in K-Cup form, I was excited. About the only time the regular coffee pot gets used is during the week in the morning and if we have company over. Having a K-Cup form is wonderful in my opinion because it is so much more convenient and easier to use.
The past couple of weeks, my mother has been trying the Counting Sheep Lights Out! Coffee and she has really been enjoying it. She says it still has the taste of a regular coffee, but without all the caffeine. Typically, she is a medium to bold coffee strength drinker, so the Lights Out! version was perfect. It had that bolder taste that she liked, without being overpowering and strong. She enjoys the fact that she can drink coffee, but will not stay up late.
As for the valerian root aspect helping to make her fall asleep or become tired, she has not really noticed it doing that. She has not noticed that she is staying up any longer either, so it must be helping to combat the whole drinking coffee later in the evening and not staying up forever.
My mother has never been a decaf coffee drinker; however, she said if all decaf tasted like Counting Sheep, she would most definitely drink it more often. She is so happy that she was able to try out the coffee, as she enjoys the fact that she can drink coffee later in the evening. She said that she would definitely purchase Counting Sheep Lights Out! Coffee again. The price is actually decent for k-cups and they are affordable, especially if you are a coffee lover!
Overall, we have both been happy with this experience. Counting Sheep Coffee is definitely a company that I would recommend. Their products are decently priced, taste good, and are easy to use! If you want to drink coffee in the evening, but do not want to stay awake from the caffeine, then you need to try Counting Sheep!
